Cuisine: A La Carte, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Gastronomy at its finest with jaw-dropping views to match, welcome to Riverton Beachhouse.

You won't be surprised to hear that the interior mimics its namesake. It's clean and crisp, sticking to a simple colour scheme of white, brown and black which gives the place that Zen feel. As soon as you step in, you get those holiday vibes, even if it's just for dinner.

The food is a spectacle within itself - each dish is a work of art. Get the taste buds tingling with some of their divine starters, like the seafood chowder or polenta fries. Now, if you like your meat you're in the right place. For mains, choose from the pork belly, lamb shoulder curry or ribeye steak, all of which come with innovative sides. There's a beetroot and spinach risotto for vegetarians; just don't wear your favourite white shirt!

Then relax and soak in the scenery with a bottle (or two) of your favourite beverage. After all, what else are views made for?

The service here was amazing. So nice to be sitting in the window taking in the stunning view of Riverton. Our meals were all really nice with great flavors in all, pasta, blue code and ribeye steak. Will definitely return. Thanks First Table

Amazing location with beautiful see views
Friendly staff
Started with polenta fries with dipping sauce, they were hot, crispy and delicious.
Nice wine list, I enjoyed a Misty Cove Pinot noir with my meal.
I ordered the Parmesen crusted fish and it was great. The fish was crusted and hot, and underneath were some piping hot fresh courgettes broccoli and beetroot, and a delicious and very generous mash. Really enjoyed my meal and recommend this lovely spot.

The food is really excellent- highly recommend the bruschetta. The wine list is also one of the best I've seen- have a taste of the Misha's Limelight Riesling it is mouth-watering! Great service and we will definitely be back.

Amazing! My sister and I went for our birthday dinner (we are twins) and it was phenomenal. Amazing food and lovely service. The green lipped mussels were so yummy I’m still thinking about them then a week later. I ordered the salmon with risotto and it was fabulous. Amazing place, great atmosphere. 10/10 would go again.

The Beach House Cafe Riverton was great,meal was really nice,plenty of it and no room for desert.The lovely calm waves and veiw from our table were a treat to see also and it wasnt crowded for an early evening meal.The waitress wish we got her name was very nice,helpful and attentive and friendly.Would certainly dine again at The Beach House Riverton soon.Try it its well worth it,and its a romantic spot.5 ,stars.

The food was amazing. They had a good range on their menu. The tables were spread out, so there was plenty of room. The view was stunning.
But what made this place was the staff - WOW! They wanted to be there, they were friendly, relaxed and made us feel so welcome.
This is a restaurant that if the food was average (it wasn’t, it was amazing) you would go back anyway due to the service. 10/10 they should be proud.

Staff were wonderful.Very friendly and welcoming. Food was well presented and delicious. Over all I'd give this place a 10 out of 10

Dinner was absolutely beautiful- the meals were large and great value for money as the quality was excellent. We were very impressed with the wine and beer list too, which showcased drops from Central Otago along with many superb craft beers.
There was a stunning view of the ocean and an all-round great atmosphere with a cosy fireplace.
I would highly recommend the Riverton Beach House Restaurant for lunch or dinner and will definitely be visiting again, thank you for a wonderful evening!

As a group of Ladies away on a Girls Painting Trip we had a very memorable night dining at the Riverton Beachouse!!Most of us enjoyed the Parmesan Crusted Blue Cod which was a very tasty and filling meal. Highly recommend the Seafood Chowder that I had for lunch the next day too!!

Dined on Sunday 7th July 2019. Was a horrible cold, wet, windy, rainy winter night but the food and the service sure made up for that. It was warm and inviting inside, all the staff were happy and helpful. We had all 3 courses, I had the salmon for a main, hubby had pork belly, and they were huge and delicious. Our daughters meal was fun, had some fresh fruit and chocolate fish in the side. Good choice of wines, good playlist. Divine! Highly recommend.
