Good morning. As you are probably aware restrictions are easing all across Scotland and we hope you will all enjoy your new found freedoms - they've been hard earned after all! After much deliberation, we at Riva have decided that for the moment we will not be opening the cafe inside. We will continue to offer excellent value and service as we have been doing since March, operating a self-service system from our window/hatch. This unfortunately means that there are currently no toilet facilities at present, though Kip Marina may offer access to theirs (please enquire at reception area).
This decision has not been made lightly and only after examining a combination of economic factors and advice from our local Environmental Health department.
We've concluded that it is the safest option for our family, staff and customers alike. What will change is that we will be increasing our seating area outside threefold, and with the weather in the lap of the gods, here's hoping we're in for some sunny days.
As this is an ever evolving picture we will review this on the 17th of May.
Our current hours are that we are open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 3pm. We are closed Mondays (except Bank Holidays). Please ensure social distancing, queue responsibly and clear all your empty dishes and boxes in the bins provided.
Thanks once again for all your patience and continued support. We couldn't have done it so far without you.
As of Friday 5th of March 2021 and following all Government guidelines we will be offering a take away service from the window. Our operating hours will be 10am to 3pm every day except Mondays. Social distancing measures will be in place, masks must be worn and though we accept cash, credit and or debit cards would be preferable for payment.
Please note due to a family event the cafe will open later on Tuesday 23rd March at 1pm.
If I could take this opportunity to thank our fabulous staff and family for their dedication and efforts throughout this trying period. And not just for the smooth running of the Cafe and for helping keep everyone safe but mostly for putting up with me!
Even if I don't say it as often as I could I am immensely proud of each and every one of them and forever thankful.
Finally I would also like to thank our customers for their loyalty, kindness, understanding and friendship You have given us a sense of purpose and the willingness to to carry on despite the obstacles that were put in front of us.
We hope to re-open for the new season in early March 2021 with a renewed determination. We will as usual review all Government guidance and confirm nearer the time.
I cannot thank you enough for your kind words and support.
In the meantime have a merry Christmas, stay safe and look out for each other.

A stylish outlet, located in the magnificent Kip Marina the cafe is named in homage to the classic Riva Aquarama speedboat first built in 1962, its classic lines, mahogany hull, sheer beauty and speed evoking an era of by gone elegance and impeccable taste.
Take time out and cast your eye over the impressive yachts or sit outside and people watch as they tend to their boats. On those crisp clear days why not walk or cycle along the many picturesque seaside paths, admiring the views and spotting wildlife. By the time you reach us at Cafe Riva you'll have earned your hot chocolate and marshmallows!
Thank you all very much for your custom and support over the season.
