Food

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. 

Our menu changes almost daily based on availability of ingredients. For that reason, it is not possible to display it on our website.

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.
