RIVA Ristorante, Bar & Beach offers an innovative and unique dimension to Dubai’s beach scene by being the first standalone independent destination to provide a chilled out, stylish and relaxing atmosphere in addition to giving guests access to complete à la carte facilities.
RIVA Ristorante is an exceptional dining option for those seeking a relaxed and stylish venue to enjoy some of the most authentic fresh Italian dishes in Dubai, served up the Mediterranean al fresco way by the beach.
RIVA Ristorante is a perfect option for either intimate dining on our terrace, great daytime snacks by the pool or a place to host larger gatherings in a tranquil waterside setting by the beach.
Guests can feast on a wide range of salads, fresh pasta, custom pizzas and an enviable list of carpaccios. The RIVA Ristorante menu also features seafood platters piled high with the freshest crab, oysters and langoustines.
The recently redesigned interior and tree lined al fresco terrace provides the ideal place to enjoy beach side dining or intimate dinners with its nautical inspired colours, beach chic atmosphere and views of the Burj Al Arab and the stunning Dubai waterfront.
RIVA boasts two bar areas each with its own ambience and decor:
The fully licensed al fresco Gazebo Bar is adjacent to the terrace Ristorante and pool, and also features a great outdoor lounge for over 80 people.
The Gazebo provides the ideal location to chill and unwind just metres from the water, while sipping on RIVA’s signature cocktails and enjoying the chilled beats of our resident DJ.
The indoor Ristorante bar & lounge serves a fantastic selection of classic signature cocktails, beers and carefully selected wines and champagnes together with the restaurant’s Riviera inspired delicacies.
