Been many times to Viva and always thought the food and wine to be of a great qualify for the price in fact I've often contented to friends and family on how right an independent can get it where a chain sometimes doesn't. Yesterday I ordered "The Flame Burger" described as two patties with a hot sauce in a roll.... More

For a long while this restaurant was offering 2 for 1 on pasta and pizza during the week and a group of us booked thinking we'd have a cheap girls night out. Unfortunately this only applies on Tuesday and Wednesday now so it turned out that it was a little more expensive than we had planned. Still, mains are mostly... More

My wife & I were met with a pleasant smile and despite not having booked were shown to a table (fortunately we were slightly ahead of the evening as within in a very short time the restaurant was virtually full and would recommend booking) This was not our first visit and as usual there were some interesting 'Daily Specials' in...

We have eaten here before, last time in April. Today we went for lunch and it was like a different restaurant but with the same menu. The service was poor. After being seated it was 10 minutes before the waiter came back and only them when prompted. No drinks order was taken when we sat down. The food was not... More

I used to be a big fan of this restaurant, but something seems to have changed - I can only assume new management? Service used to be far more efficient and friendly. In fairness, some of the food was great but some didn't taste so fresh (fishcakes seemed to be shop bought). This restaurant is still ok, but I'd be... More

We went to this restaurant with the family to celebrate my parents ruby wedding one lunchtime. The staff gave us a great table in the back with some good space for us to have what we wanted. The retro atmosphere was great making it feel good for having a "low key party" as the parents wanted. Good prices and the... More

My husband & I & 4 friends dined here last week - we were all really impressed with Viva staff & food. A friendly tall Italian man showed us to our garden table & the whole time we were there he made sure we were looked after. I had avocado prawns for starter, they were juicy & perfectly cooked, not... More

Visited here Thursday night. It was quite only a few tables. Looked at the menu and decided to order a burger. Not something I would normally have. When it arrived I cut it in half. It was oozing blood, and the middle was cold. I found a waitress and asked to have my burger redone. Cooked and hot. Because of... More
