Great ambience

We dine there with coupons, and the food was good and the restaurant has great decor and great feel with the music and dance. Location was also top.

Underwhelming & dull. I’m not describing any particular person or their personality but we all know someone like this. The Vivaz Restaurant & Nightclub is a Churasco restaurant which is looking tired & rundown. It had a distinct cafeteria look about its chairs/tables together with tropical themed cardboard cut-outs on the wall. It seemed obvious the owners have run out... More

Staff and service was worst I've experienced. We were pointed to a table at the back and left their without any explanation on what was going on for food, no drink service no staff anywhere to be seen. Food was poor, having to line up for a long time and when you get to the meat section a staff member... More

Had a great night for my cousins Hens night. I had organised this and then seen some bad reviews on trip advisor so I felt paranoid that I made the wrong decision. I did not make the wrong decision, we all had a fabulous night. The cocktail making class was heaps of fun as was the Latin American dance lesson.... More

Where to start...I am always happy to reflect on good or bad times and always in a constructive manner, but I have to say this review has tested every part of trying to be constructive. We called at very short notice a few weeks ago requesting a table at 6pm, to be told that they were full: no problem. We... More

I first visited Vivaz about 2 years ago and had a wonderful time, the atmosphere was fun and the food was good and the view was lovely. Unfortunately over the last 6-8 months, the quality of the venue and restaurant has taken a nose dive. The only thing that has remained the same is the view out the window :(... More

Our friends and I got a scoopon for $98 for 4 people including buffet dinner and a free sangria. Not a huge variety of food but the selection of meat was yummy! Great music and after 9 and was great to watch the people who actually knew how to latin dance! Wouldnt pay full price for it though

We managed to get a discount offer which made it an acceptable meal. However, at full price, it is not good value. The food was but disappointing overall. The main meal wa buffet style and consisted of chorizo sausage (overcooked and dry); pork belly (over salted and almost inedible); chicken wing (tasty but dry); braised beef (reasonable) - additional salads...

We didn't stay for the dancing/nightclub so just reviewing Vivaz as a place to eat. Ambience is generally a bit tired although if you are lucky enough to get a table near the windows then there are some quite good views of the Harbour and Opera House. We liked that the tables are well spaced but later on when they... More
