We have eaten at the Riviera many times, but our last visit in mid-December was terrible. The service was very slow and our food arrived with everything either cold or cold in the middle. My partner's steak was a terrible combination of being both overcooked and cold. As an aside to the above review, I was also due to meet... More

We ate there on two occasions during our stay and were made very welcome, once at very short notice.Staff were willing to alter the menu to suit our dietary requirements and could not have been more helpful. Lovely atmosphere and a well stocked bar. What more could you ask for. Hope to visit again soon.

Normally we steer well clear of tapas in the UK but this was excellent and the Tuesday offer was good value - choose 6+ tapas and get 2 glasses of wine free. Generous tasty portions, reasonably priced with friendly service. Recommended especially in the off-season.

Not sure what the new owners are thinking. This used to be a regular haunt after work, after school with the kids, over the weekend etc. Used to be dog friendly and more importantly a great tapas menu which just worked. An evening stroll would end with nice wine and plenty of food. This is no longer the case. A... More
