I had Viva Amok. Was well presented and a large portion. I really enjoyed. Had this fish elsewhere and it was way better here. Well worth a visit and very reasonably priced.

If you’re looking for Mexican, this may not be your place. Food was average at best, not much atmosphere but ok if you need a pit stop and fancy a spot of people watching on pub street. Least favourite restaurant of the holiday.
