Paid a visit to this bar on a Monday afternoon. The staff had been rushed off their feet all day, yet they still made us feel extremely welcome. The atmosphere is laid back and extremely inviting. Whilst it was only a flying visit, I did look at the menu, which was widely varied and definitely one which appeals to me.... More

Joined some friends here on a Friday night, but regretted it. Food awful, service sketchy (waiters were nice enough, but manager did not seem to want our party in there). Food poor.

The staff are friendly and prepared to make genuine conversation. I am a healthy eater and enjoy clean fresh food which this restaurant provided. The manager made me and my family feel really welcome and had a great sense of humour. Some off these poor reviews about bland food are most probably by over weight people who are used to... More

Worse restaurant I have been, tasteless food and bad service. Looks good from outside and decor not bad but didn't live up to its name

Quo Vadis has been a family favourite for many years where I have enjoyed evenings with friends, family and my husband. After my mum died we visited less often but when friends spoke about it recently we wanted to go back. The menu has changed but the lovely Gattas and John remain the same and welcomed us as though it... More

I met an old friend here back in November time, we thought we would try it as we had never been before. I'm not sure if the menu was being re-done or if they do not offer a wide selection of lunch choices but my choices were very limited, being a veggie, I always expect to have less choice but...

Not being local to Formby I picked Quo Vadis on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and the menu on the website. Unfortunately neither of them proved to be accurate. The menu online is totally different to the unadventurous, unexciting mish-mash of dishes on the laminate (!) menu in the restaurant. The manager (after making a sarcastic remark about us being...
