on the plate

Guests can expect simple yet refined dishes focused on sustainable ingredients from the local area, highlighting local vegetables and wild foods. Riverest’s incredible team works hard to create everything from scratch.

Mini Market

Bring a little piece of Riverest home with you thanks to our mini market, which offers goods such as local cheeses, meats, terrines, drinks, etc. Like our menu, items on the shelves change frequently, so simply drop by during opening hours to discover what’s available.

Fresh &
Local

Our chef is vastly inspired by the great quality and the array of ingredients and produce available locally. Riverest’s menu changes often — according to season and availability — to offer the freshest and most flavourful ingredients. We also take pride is carefully choosing producers and farmers who’s methods align with our sustainable and ethical principles whenever possible.

Food restrictions

We take food allergies and restrictions very seriously. Our professional Chef and his team always prepare sensitive ingredients early in the morning, allowing for a full kitchen sanitization afterwards, thus preventing cross-contamination.
If you plan on dining in, please let us know in advance! We’ll take extra preventive mesures to ensure you have the best experience possible.
