Sensational meal!

I could not fault the meal we had at Vivo. Gnocchi was the best I ever had. So tasty. A decent serving - I struggled to finish the meal. Kids were happy with the kids selections - and they were well accommodated by the staff. Beer list was exceptional. Wine list also very good. Service outstanding... read more

With family on holidays. This is now our 3rd restaurant to visit and so far the worst. After reading some mixed reviews on here, we have to add yet another bad one. The food around the table was all bad reviews. We are not usually a picky family, but this was a really bad experience in general but food by... More

One main course was from the à la carte menu, the other a special. Both were great. So was the desert.

We first came here for dinner and had a brilliant night. Great vibe, food, service etc. highly recommend. We then came back with friends the next morning for breakfast and had the best morning out. We sat for hours. It was divine. Highly recommend.

What can I say. This was a laughably bad dining experience. We went based on the solid Trip Advisor rating expecting a decent, if expensive meal. We ordered from the set menu. For our entrees, the 'tempura' tofu dish consisted of firm, deep fried, tasteless tofu served with some seaweed salad and a puzzlingly large slice of inedible miso butter.... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews. Really pretty disappointing. Looks great from the outside, but really under delivered. Set menu was style over substance – the two prawn dumplings I had for a starter were shocking, and the veal main course was a confusion of mismatched ingredients. My wife had a beautiful piece of pan-fried snapper, but it was served... More
