When you walk in the doors, you walk into the Bistro section, with a huge range of tables and chairs to choose from. To the right is also an outdoor covered seating area for those wishing to be outside to enjoy the sunshine. To the left when you walk in is a bar, and you can walk through to some poker machines and the sports bar.
They have a wide range of options on the menu, with a selection of Edz 10 meals for $10 everyday which include: Beef Lasagne, Tempura Fish, Slow Roasted Lamb Shank, Chicken Schnitzel, Spinach and Riccota Canneloni, BLT, Marinated Scotch Fillet, Caesar Wrap, Salt and Pepper Squid and 15 Spicy Sticky Wings. Aside from this they have a large range of pastas, pizzas, schnitzel, ribs, salads etc.
One of the best things about The Pub @ Rivo is that it is open 7 days a week for all day dining, from 11am - 9pm.
My first visit to the Pub at Rivo was the 5th of January, 2014. I had driven past many times with my Dad and we had always said we needed to go in and try it. We decided to go there for lunch with my brother and my partner. We had an entree of garlic bread and bruschetta, followed by 4 main meals.
My dad had the combination ribs, so there were beef, lamb and pork ribs covered in their special Smoky BBQ sauce which added to 600grams with a side of chips and salad. My dad absolutely loved his meal! The meat was just falling off the bone it was so soft and he really enjoyed it. One of the best ribs he has ever had!

I had the delicious Napolitana Pasta with tomato, onion, garlic and herbs, and I got them to add chicken to it. It was one of the best pastas I have had in a long time. The portion size was perfect with just the right amount of tomato and chicken. It was also served with a garlic bread. We had a side of chips and gravy to share also.

I was very impressed by the size of the meals for their cost. The pasta and schnitzel were both $16 and the pizza was $14. The combination ribs were $38 which in most cases would seem very expensive, however, for the large size of the meal, of which my Dad couldn't finish, I thought this was a very reasonable price.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and they were definitely great value for money. I would highly recommend all readers to visit The Pub @ Rivo because you will not be disappointed with the food. All our meals tasted great, had awesome flavour, were hot, delicious and didn't take long at all to come out.
The place wasn't very busy either, which meant the meal waiting times weren't long and we could relax and enjoy our meals without lots of noise and other people around us. So I would highly recommend the Pub @ Rivo for people of all ages and for any occasion if you are looking for top quality food, great prices and a nice atmosphere.
