This restaurant exceeded my expectations. For sure one of the best restaurants in Valencia but as I am a Gourmet traveller I may confirm this applies even compared to other famous Chefs. I took the 5 courses Lonja menue but as you are greeted with several amuse bouche it ends up with many more. I can't describe all dishes otherwise this review ends up being a book but want to point out my favourites. The oyster, prepared in Bernd Knöllers special way and the rice cooked with algues, served with white tuna filet and plankton. It might sound strange these ingredients but it is a mouthwatering taste on your palate. The service is fast, the atmosfere relaxed. Not only me liked the background music which isn't the normal hotel music blabla but real songs by the original interprete. Bernd Knöller himself came out to the tables several times to talk to the guests and explain the dish served. It is highly recommended if you want to a enjoy a wonderful, excellent lunch or dinner. I dined alone and felt very much cared of.

My second time at Riff. I like how present the Chef is - he comes out to serve some dishes, explains them. In comparison to other Michelin star restaurants, he is much more freestyle I really imaging him going to the market in the morning to see what they have, then create something ad-hoc for that day. I like that, it's a much less formal experience and more authentic. The food quality is good, the presentation too. The service is excellent. This is the same crew that I saw two years ago, it's a great team and they know what do to and do it quickly and efficiently. Great to see in a time when many other "Stars" struggle to find good people for service. This crew may seem kind of cold at first, but when you see them work together, it's fun to watch them.

This was a wonderful restaurant experience. From the first bites and drinks to the final dessert, all was completed with finesse and talent. The chef and his team are amazing. The food was very creative and delicious. This was an unbelievably lovely dining experience and I will be back in the future, if possible.

The quality was excellent as well as the service, and the price after The Fork discount was more than affordable. Recommend 100%

We enjoyed a great experience. The chef came out and asked us about our preferences which was a nice touch. All food was excellent. Waiting staff were great too. We will be back.

Lovely food and service at this classy restaurant. Small and intimate restaurant if a little clinical in terms of ambience - lighting bright, minimalist decoration, no external windows. The food is extraordinarily. A foodies paradise. Menu a bit tricky to interpret but the chef comes to the table to answer questions and take the order. Eating here is a real experience. Recommended.

Fuimos aprovechando el descuento de the fork y fue una grata sorpresa, es un sitio tranquilo y acogedor, donde vas realmente a relajarte y disfrutar de la comida, Los platos son aparentemente sencillos pero la calidad es espectacular. Bernd, te toma nota personalmente y se preocupa de que este yendo todo bien, pidas de carta o de menú,tiene detalles antes y después que no te dejan indiferente, recomiendo descubrirlo, si aún no te has animado a probarlo.

Fantastic food with some interesting surprises and unexpected taste experiences. Mostly fish and seafood based modern dishes. The staff was fantastic, more than friendly and made us feeling very welcomed.

Outstanding. I have been coming to Riff on special occasions for several years. The quality of these experiences is never less than superb. A creative menu, tranquil ambience and visits from the Chef himself make dining at Riff a joy. Highly recommended.

The chief is very interested person, he interested every table like as his table. I ate riff menu. Here is Valencia. We ate last summer, the menu is full fisheries. Now the menu is full pork meat. Although we liked the Riff restaurant more than El Poblet.

The service was excellent and food was good. Bernd was attentative to all guests and he greeted us and made us few welcome. Coming from London and in comparison we felt this restaurant given the standard of food was reasonably priced as were the drinks. We were lucky to be able to eat there.
