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 atmosphere: subtly elegant decor, quiet conversation and a chic but not pretentious feel. Serivice was good: friendly, thoughtful and attentive but not overly stiff, fitting with the broader feel.
    We enjoyed the food a lot. One starts with breadsticks which can be dippe in a range of vegetables-based dips: both delicious and fun (as one can hide the descriptions and try to guess the ingredients); then some very good breads (lemon, which was amazing; tomato focaccia and brown). For the rest of my meal I had fish based courses, all of which were very good: marinated sea bream which was amazing and octopus which was good, not quite spectacular. For my main I had a cod with shellfish which I really enjoyed: delicate and perfectly cooked, well flavoured and complemented perfectly with the seafood and sauce. My husband really enjoyed his buratta and his stone bass carpaccio, but his beef was rather disappointing: tough and stringy. Overall we felt the food was good, broadly speaking of the category we would expect, though not amazing enough to be particularly memorable. The beef was the only disappointment.

    Very discreet restaurant set in the Bulgari Hotel, Knightsbridge, very stylish entry and bar, also well spaced tables
    The service was excellent, especially our Italian waitress. The food was very good. The vitello tonnato was tender and tasty and the Buffalo mozzarella had a very satisfying mixture of textures. Main course was a rump steak which melted in my mouth. For desert the Tiramisu was excellent. Throughout service was impeccable and the tequila cocktail set things up very well!

    excellent all round\
    service food ambience all very good
    the small tray of dips at the beginning is a fabulous idea and all were delicious
    the lemon bread was great - perhaps could have been warm as an even better touch
    the only slight negative was the price of the wines which was extortionate, but the current special offer of £38 for 4 courses was amazing value

    There was a beautifully presented, nine little capfuls of dips for the house made grissini.They all tasted like baby food except for the olive dip.
    The welcome pearls drink was poor.
    The bread was the best at have had in London. The salad was fine, but the mozzarella and puntarelle were in a dressing that was not very Italian--too creamy and did not have a charger plate under it so that the dressing kept dripping on the tablecloth.
    The duck was done well, but could have come from any of the upscale restaurants around town.
    The tiramisu had a gelatinous layer of coffee. Here was no coffee flavor in the biscuits.
    Would rather keep going to other bookable restaurants than return there. Just not exceptional, just good.
    Dramatic room, excellent service.

    The hotel and restaurant atmosphere and design are amazing. Service quality outstanding. The price/quality ratio of my 38 Pounds menu was good given the experience I had. Nice appetizzers. A few starters seemed very "basic"'to me (please do not offer a salad wrapped in a crêpe)
    The seared foie gras, meat main course made my girlfriend very happy ;-)
    Chocolate desserts were amazing!
    I would come back at Rivea.
