Ensconced in the über-luxe bowels of the Bulgari Hotel, Alain Ducasse’s ode to French Riviera cuisine is a curious prospect: the menu brims with sunshine yet with no windows and low lighting, the glitzy room suits after-dark dining. Ducasse protégé Alexandre Nicolas crafts superlative flavours from such combinations as burrata, bottarga and capers, or raw sea bream paired with a light citrus sauce. Previously criticised for small portions, Nicolas has clearly taken note, introducing main courses to complement the list of small plates. Our milk-fed lamb was perfectly cooked and presented simply with seasonal vegetables, allowing prime ingredients the freedom to sing. Fish is a forte, with pescatarians tempted by the likes of sautéed prawns, squid and cuttlefish, or roasted stone bass with minestrone. To finish, the ever-popular tarte au chocolat remains: a killer combo of rich chocolate and the “best type of fine crisp pastry”. Admirable back-up is provided by a superb Franco-Italian wine list. Prices are predictably steep, but top-notch service and glossy surrounds make Rivea a treat.
Rivea London was launched in May 2014 by internationally renowned chef Alain Ducasse at Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London. Inspired by the many years Ducasse spent visiting the vibrant food markets in Italy and Provence, Rivea serves French and Italian cuisine in a chic, convivial and relaxed setting. The menu of small plates incorporates the classic flavours and vivid colours of the Riviera. After just 9 months since opening, Rivea was proud to announce that it had been awarded a coveted three Rosettes by the highly respected 2015 AA Guide.Commenting on the opening, Ducasse said: ‘I am delighted to bring Rivea...

Well, where do we start with this one…the Bulgari Hotel looks like the hangout for the likes of Russian billionaires or footballers who haven’t quite realised that money doesn’t buy class yet, you can’t miss the bling of mirrors, dark crystal and smoked glass. Don’t let this intimidate you; if you like eating then get yourself here tomorrow.Rivea at the Bulgari is a fairly new restaurant (we visited it in the opening month first then again in January) that aims to be fine dining as it comes under the Alain Ducasse’s portfolio. This is headed up by Damien Leroux, who has worked under Alain for around ten...

The Bulgari hotel is as sleek and stylish as it's namesake brand, and I loved the long metal bar located on the ground floor of the hotel. From here we descended into the rather cavernous depths of the hotel's main restaurant.The restaurant was beautifully designed and the curved lines and blue carpet gave it a rather nautical feel. The only problem was that because the room was so big, fairly empty and accented with blues and metals, it did feel a little bit cold. It was a shame as the design really was gorgeous and super chic. The menu is made up of small plates with dishes from the Riviera,...

A basement dining room may not sound like the likely place to conjure up the sunny, chic South of France, but the chef with a constellation of stars (as the French like to say) has managed to do exactly that at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge. Alain Ducasse has brought the flavours of the French and Italian Riviera to his latest London restaurant; Rivea. The chef also has a starred restaurant of the same name in St. Tropez, although you get the feeling that he isn’t trying to achieve the same thing. The food here is typically Ducasse, but in a more accessible style. Everything is about the produce being the best...

The Rivea London Restaurant at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge draws its inspiration from the vibrant food markets of the Italian and French Riviera. Therefore what you see on the table is a blend of French and Italian dishes drawn up from the freshest seasonal produce. Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas worked with Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse both in London and Paris for ten years. As such, he brings a touch of refinement to a menu that focuses on simple, yet bold flavours.We booked the ‘Star Deal’ menu at Rivea London through Bookatable.co.uk which comprised of four plates and a glass of wine for a very...
