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.

    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.

    We had a 4 course meal at Rivea on Sunday evening. The food was excellent and we loved the vegetarian dips with bread at the start.which were beautifully presented. I had phoned ahead to let the restaurant know one of our party was gluten free. She reported the gluten free bread was the best she'd tasted . The staff were friendly and attentive. Although a little pricey the food was certify worth it.
