Food was really nice but what really made the meal was Mhairi's excellent service, more of an entertainer than a waiter, she was really fun :)

We visited Bar Varia for the first time ever, and with such a fantastic experience will definitely be returning. Mhairi, our server, made us feel supremely welcome and was extremely helpful and professional. We couldn't decide what to get so opted for the Tyrol Platter. The food was excellent, and a generous portion size. Highly recommended visit. Thank you
