“A cut above”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Giver is well priced and offered excellent service, the food represents a variety of international cuisine with a modern twist, server was very friendly. The restaurant is large but on the terrace we had our own private corner, we opted for the Indian curry dishes and these were tasty and beautifully presented, and still around £14 each represented good value for money, recommended.

“Great food as well consistent, attentive and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

I have visited Vivre for breakfast and dinner very frequently over the past 18 months. Wide selection of breakfast choices for many tastes and make to order service. Dinner menu is excellent, also satisfying most regional styles, and the quality of the food fantastic. Great to sees directly into the kitchen and appeciate the organized, efficient way the food is produced. Grilled salmon and Thai curries to die for as is the coriander and lentil soup.

“Fantastic staff, delicious food, one of the best in London!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

I have visited Vivre on several occasions and each time I have been amazed at the quality of food, eagerness of staff, great ambiance and good prices. What people don't know is that the cook often prepares special off the menu dishes for customers with dietary restrictions. This is unique and qualifies it as one of the best in London. Couple of other reasons to dine here: prompt service and staff's enthusiasm. All of this makes dining here a true pleasure.

The only downside I can think of is its location - I don't see a lot of people driving up from London or suburbs to dine here but it sure is worth it. Maybe next time you drop off family or friend at the airport - have a meal here before you say bye.

We stayed one night because our flight was cancelled. It was somewhat disappointing but the stay at a nice hotel like sofitel was very nice. And the breakfast was perfect and delicious.

“Great performance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

It's very unexpected to find a restaurant of this quality in an airport hotel. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was also superb and the view of the action in the kitchen is terrific! We have eaten here on a few occasions and now always book a table near the kitchen (yes, I know, the reverse of what you'd usually do!). I was very pleased to see that Vivre is now using beef from Suffolk, which is the best in the world. I can understand that the open kitchen is not to everyone's taste, but as far as we are concerned, it's great.
