We received very lovely service. The food was exceptional, although the menu was limited to flatbread and pizza. (Stick to what you know eh). Drink wise there is a good offering from spirits to wines. This place is right on the river and offers great...views of the DanubeMore

Great bar/bistro with lovely atmosphere and great service. Would also recommend for parties or events. Easy communication and great customer service! More places in town should be like this one!

I went with friends and had something to drink, nice place with chill atmosphere. However, when we had to leave and pay, the waitress had the worst approach - she angrily asked if we wanted to pay or order, we told her to pay, I...specified what and that we were outside, to which she patronizingly replied that there were too many people outside for her to know where were we. The way we were treated is definitely not matching the standards that this place pretends to offer.More

Our feet were tired and we were exhausted so we made our way here an hour and a half before our boat was to leave. We were pleased with the reasonable prices of the drinks and we were intrigued by the marinated cheese so we...ordered that. WOW, the cheese is marinated with herbs and spices galore and it's served with plenty of bread. It's amazing! We're glad we got tired and came here...it made for an incredible experience! The music was also great and loved the service!More

My friends and I first visited the Riva after heading up the UFO bridge. It's got a really cool vibe and the music just sets the mood perfectly. It's very well priced and just a lovely way to spend a few hours chilling. The following...day it looked like rain, so we headed here again for 1 drink. Once the heavens opened and an almighty thunderstorm hung around for several hours, we stayed here for 4 hours drinking and had a little light lunch. A special thank you to the waitress who when she discovered I had run out of ciggerettes, rolled me a few to save me going out in the storm! :-) Great staff, great food and just a fabulous vibe, we loved it, both times.More

We visited on a very warm April day, sitting outside, music playing in the background, cold beers swiftly delivered to our table. Probably the cheapest beers we had in Bratislava, and service was good.
