This is an Italian seafood restaurant. We were a 15-person group. Food was served quickly -- great! The half lobster for first course was underdone. The yellow-fin tuna was perfect. The chocolate variations varied little around a single note. The service was typically Italian-abroad: boisterous, shouting pregos and grazies to make sure we noticed them. High-class clientele surrounded us, including... More

We booked this restaurant for the Christmas' day dinner as we assumed it would be difficult to find an open place. The restaurant was full and from the beginning the service was very rushed. We asked for a lobster soup, half a lobster with potato mash and a large portion of sushi. The soup and lobster were very good, although... More

I was in the restaurant for a four person family diner. We all had starters, main course and desert. The food is good but the size the restaurant serves is small. As an example, the large Sushi plate costs €20,- and has 3 pieces of Sashimi and maybe 8 Sushis which half are filled with fish. The fish soup is... More

This is the second time visiting Rive and expectations were high given our first experience. However, what could have been a wonderful dinner and evening was ruined by a loud, boisterous and obnoxious group of Czechoslovakian soccer fans that mistakenly took a fine dining restaurant for some local pub! Throughout the entire dinner they disturbed not only my table, but... More

We enjoyed a perfect diner with some collegues. Booking online was very efficient. We took the lobster and a tiramisu as desert, everything was perfect. The port view is very nice ! Do not hesitate to go

Enjoy the ship trafficking on the Elbe just a few meters from your table! Food good, but not the best in Hamburg. But we had a great evening because of the atmospher in a great location.

I had the Hamburg specialities from the menu - the pan-fried fish and summer fruits. Both were delicious. My colleagues' meals also looked delicious. Nice views of the port and attentive staff.

Excellent (Italian) seafood restaurant located at the harbor, great view especially at nighttime. Surprisingly reasonable prices considering everything else in Hamburg seems slightly overpriced.

But unfortunately the service was not at the same level. Slow and random waiter. But again, most important is the food and location.
