The staff could not be more accommodating. Nothing was a problem or hassle. The afternoon tea was delicious; the sandwiches had unique twists, the baked goods were fresh and the tea selection was very good.

Having spent 10 years working under the tutelage of Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse in London and Paris, it’s no surprise that Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas' menu takes inspiration from Italian and French dining traditions. With an interior designed by Italian architect and designer Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, Rivea restaurant in London brings the spirit of the chic French and Italian Riviera to the heart of the British capital.

Focusing on utilising simple and fresh ingredients to bring out the flavours, the Rivea London menu is vibrant and bold. Inspired by the bustling food markets in Italy and Provence, the Mediterranean menu features the likes of warm octopus and potato salad, and aubergine caviar. Main courses from the Rivea London menu include line-caught tuna with sautéed vegetables and agrodolce sauce, and seared beef fillet, crushed potatoes with olive oil.

A carefully-selected wine list complements the menu, showcasing small artisanal producers alongside iconic winemakers, all sourced from France and Italy.

Offering elegant cuisine and a relaxed ambience, Rivea London in Knightsbridge sits 2 minutes’ walk from Knightsbridge Tube Station.

    The restaurant is to be found at the bottom of s beautiful sweeping staircase. The ambience and setting is stunning. The staff were so attentive and meticulous and friendly. They couldn't do enough. The menu was explained in detail. The two starters were also surprisingly filling and extremely flavor some. The main course was wonderful we all had different meals and the experience was outstanding. As for dessert this took the experience to a whole new level!!! The beautiful Amaretti biscuit gift in a bag was also a lovely touch and a wonderful dining experience. Would definitely go back.

    We went on a Friday night and it was lovely. All the staff were so nice, chatty and very knowledgable of the food and drink. The food was amazing, the tuna starter and beef filet for main were exceptionally good.
    I would recommend getting the 4 courses and a cocktail for £39 it was worth every penny.

    Lovely as usual, great food, good ambience, attentive services and friendly staff. Octopus salad is still my favourite on the menu, they tailored it to double portion for me as a main and it was perfect. Worth every penny. I have introduced a lot of friends there and they have all come back with very positive feedback. Also took business customers there and had very good time. It is a place that I have some very good memories associated with.
