We were seated by the fountains and the view was fantastic. Disappointed somewhat as some dishes take up to one hour after ordered. The staff were not over friendly probably as it is a busy restaurant at times. alcohol availableMore

The food was great, the service was excellent and the location out of this world. The Grill overlooks the fountains at the bottom of the Burj Kalifa and at 8pm every night the show starts. Overall a great experience.

Very disappointed. The roast had terrible meat ( I was with a butcher, my father) the burger was underdone, the drinks prices were ridiculous. The Rivington at souk Madonna was much better, but sadly closed. Would only return if had too I'm afraid.More

Description
Spreading its wings far from Shoreditch’s Rivington Street original in London, Rivington Grill, Souk Al Bahar was the first to open in Dubai, followed by a second, Rivington Bar and Grill that opened in 2012. The restaurant, located in the cosmopolitan Downtown area, is very well known in Dubai and is famed and loved for its seasonal menu, simplistic décor, friendly staff and fantastic views. The Rivington Grill concept is ‘back to basics’ home cooked food, offering authentic British classics, with what the chef’s call ‘a Rivi twist’.The adjoining terrace is the restaurant’s highlight; sitting over the water ways of the Dubai Fountains, with the Burj Khalifa looming just meters away, it offers one of the best vistas in the city, and makes a great space for sundowners and dinner parties at dusk. As well as the á la carte menu and the blackboard specials, the restaurant also offers ‘The Rivi Lunch Hour’ which is a new take on the common ‘business lunch’, where a 2 course lunch will be all done and dusted within an hour for just 100 AED.
