By Eva Kaan – My friends asked me if I wanted to join them for lunch at Riva, a restaurant that is located on a beautiful spot at the Amstel. After arranging grandma to look after my daughter, it was a ‘yes’.

After arriving, my expectations immediately grew. The restaurant has a luxurious appearance and the guests clearly made an effort to be dressed nicely. The weather contributed to the wonderful atmosphere, but the food absolutely topped things off!

Definitely worth going again! Riva is located at Amstelboulevard 1, check our their website for more information. Please keep in mind to make reservations if you would like to be sure of a spot on the terrace.
