First opened in 2012 Riverlife offers an eclectic range of French Caribbean dishes. They cater for private parties (up to 40) and it is BYOB.
A new opening in 2012 in the less fashionable culinary end of town, Riverlife brings to the Edinburgh market its singular blend of French and Caribbean cooking. Inspired by the upbringing of lead chef Mario Caneval on the island of Guadeloupe and a subsequent career working in hotels and restaurants in Paris and Scotland, the décor is rough and ready but the menu offers a break from the norm. The regular à la carte selection is more French-flavoured, with rack of lamb, confit duck leg and chicken supreme served alongside a signature rustic butterbean cassoulet. On the first Sunday of every month or by arrangement for groups if booked ten days in advance, however, the Caribbean buffet features dishes like chicken liver Malibu, goat and vegetable curry and a spicy jerk chicken leg.
