My husband and I had a really yummy and unusual breakfast this morning. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided we needed to try this place. We had Bubble and squeak and the three little pigs. Gosh unusual combination but delicious and we thought quite a healthy choice. Dish included potato, pumpkin, Brussel sprouts, salad, tomato salsa, onion and... More

A local recommended this to us, so we had lunch here on a busy Sunday. Despite the almost full house, they were happy to give us a table without a booking, and the service was fast, attentive and flawless. This is a beautiful building with verandah seating on three sides. We were lucky enough to score a table on the... More

On a recommendation from a local my wife and I had dinner at Vivo and it lived up to expectations. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable and the food was a very clever twist on traditional favorites. I can highly recommend the duck curry which was served like I have never seen before and the pork belly, accompanied with a... More

I have been to Vivo multiple times and always had good experiences here. Both the service and food have never been disappointed. Waiting staff seem to consist of a lot of backpackers but services are always good despite their many backgrounds, a sign that management is good and active in providing training. Every time I went there seemed to be... More
