My wife and I have eaten at Vanilla three times now and the latest time was as good if not better than the previous two. The food was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Our only criticism was the wine price which we felt was too high for the 2 bottles we had. Whilst the wine we chose was one we... More

This was an early evening visit reflecting the end of a busy week and no interest in cooking by then. We'd rung the night before and ate at 6:15. It was quiet but the staff were friendly and the food excellent. The lower mark reflects the inclusion of a service charge in the bill which was optional and we had... More

A very attractive restaurant, with exemplary service. We had the early bird special before going to the theatre. Mushroom Risotto was perfectly cooked, Chorizo, Red Pepper & Crouton Salad was very tasty. Couldn't fault either the Salmon Fishcake and Wilted Spinach & Chive Veloute, or the Chargrilled Cotswold Beef Burger, Hand Cut Chips, Leaf Salad . Vanilla Crème Brulee couldn't... More

Sitting outside on a hot summer evening with friends, an overall top evening. The setting faces onto the cul de sac so no roaring traffic. The staff have it at just the right level, professional, good advice, atentive but not intrusive. The tapas, which we had to share as a starter, could have had less fatty meats and maybe some...

Booked Vanilla for a group of 8 people and requested the Earlybird Menu. On arrival staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. They allowed us to sit outside for a drink before escorting us down to a lovely table in the restaurant. They didn't rush us in any way and all courses were delivered at our pace. They remained attentive throughout... More

Set in a back street of Cheltenham, it's easy to see why you might forget about Vanilla. I had previously been a few times many many years ago - we had always had excellent food and service. I But, I must admit I had completely forgotten about it. Well we went there for a quiet meal before the theatre and... More
