Managed to fit us in at short notice. The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed, giving us plenty of time to browse the menu. Oh so much choice!! Both of our meals were hot upon arrival and the presentation was great. Food was beautiful and we intend to return before we go home.

VP has an interesting menu, far different than most other restaurants in the area, and the preparation was quit good. Only drag was the service was a little slow. Otherwise, top rate.
