Lunch at Riviere House was simply sumptuous. I was so full after the Conch Chowder Appetizer and main fish dish that I had to pass up the desert. The ambience was quiet and the nice North East Trade Winds kept the Open Restaurant really comfortable on a hot Caribbean Day. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. Service was excellent. The...

Four of us joined 4 others for lunch, two of whom are Nevitians, and recommended this restaurant. It was a wonderful choice. Everyone enjoyed what was ordered, from fish, to chicken, to pasta. The service was friendly and accommodating, and the setting quiet and open. Definitely a place to revisit.

I spent many a summer of my childhood here! Nice ambience! overlooking pastures at the back and government road in front with views of St Kitts in the distance. I enjoyed the food too! The service was also good

Riviere House is a beautiful venue (see photo) where diners are seated on a breezy open air porch at the back of a creole town house...a quiet retreat from the bustle of Charlestown. The food is "haute local" featuring such Nevesian specialties as macaroni pie (mac and cheese with vegetables...and yes...different, very good and worth trying), well seasoned local fish,... More

Our 1st visit here. We called on for lunch, a lovely building and a great host. She remembered us from last year when we called in and bought a picture from the gallery there. I had a pork dish which was lovely, quite a lot of fat and bone but the meat was delicious and the rice the best I... More

I love this place! Hope, Sinbad and the rest of the team there are friendly and caring. The food is tasty, the air is always breezy and its just a short drive away from the Charlestown core.

The Riviere House is about a 15 minute walk from the ferry. A taxi will charge you about $10 (EC) or overcharge you $20 (EC). It's not the restaurant's fault. If you're overcharged by the taxi, know that your dining experience will still make it a bargain (See: photos of the menu).

All of the food was excellent and reasonable. The conch chowder was wonderful. There was also lots of room to park your car.

We attended the reopening of Riviere last night with friends. After a drinks reception we were seated in the main restaurant, which had been beautifully set out for the large number of diners. We enjoyed a lovely meal of soup, coconut chicken, pork with nuts and cranberries, finished off with bread pudding. Service was excellent and the place had a... More

This restaurant is set in a stylish traditional wooden caribbean house close to the capital Charlestown. The restaurant has a good choice of food for a light lunch or a more substantial meal if desired. It also serves breakfasts. It recently started to serve evening meals on a Wednesday evening. Prices are very reasonable and you can go for just... More
