More about Rivea London

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.

Stand-out food. Even though we took the set menu, we emailed ahead with our dietary requirements and they were very accommodating. The food was absolutely outstanding, bursting with flavour and freshness. Dining room attractive but empty - but it was a Monday night in February and the day before Valentine's, so maybe not a good night. Very sweet and helpful Sicilian waitress, Morena.

We had their tasting menu with a cocktail and we were impressed by the overall experience. A very comfortable dining room with good acoustics suitable for intimate conversations. Very good quality food beautifully presented. Excellent service and Good value for money.

What a fun and enjoyable experience dining here. It started with complementary grossini and 8 different dips to kickstart your tastebuds.

Every dish after that was a dream, my favourites were the seared steak which was lean and yet so flavoursome with melt-in-your-mouth texture along with the chocolate tart which was so cholatey but not too rich with yummy pairing ice cream. It could have been 4 times bigger and I would have demolished it :).

The decor was very classy and warm both in the restaurant and the hotel reception. I could just sit and read in front of the fireplace for hours.

Everyone from the staff team made us feel very special. JJ was our waitress and she was very attentive. The male host who took our coats was very polite and friendly and made sure everyone was tended to quickly. Thank you Rivea, we were very impressed with you.
