Description: Viva is a Traditional Spanish Tapas Restaurant right in the heart of Dublin city.We opened our doors to the public to share our love of good quality, great value Spanish food as we like to have at home.Opening in 27 South Richmond Street in Dublin 2 has given us the opportunity to keep to our ethos of good quality ingredients 100% Guaranteed tracable Irish and Spanish meats, Spanish cheeses, delicious Seafood, Premium Spanish Coffees, a wide selection of Teas, Traditional Deserts and a good range of Spanish, Argentinian and Chillean wines and Cavas...With seating for over 80 people and outdoor seating in the front and a private Terrace to the rear al fresco dining is a pleasure on a warm balmy evening or a long brunch with friends.All we need is a little sunshine and you would almost think you were in Spain give or take a few degrees!We love to cook and nothing gives us more pleasure than a customers gratitude and compliments to the chef.Taste is key and expanding our menu little by little offering you the best we can along with our keen pricing we know you will enjoy our food again and again. Viva!

Absolutely an amazing place to have tapas in Dublin with really high quality food and incredibly cheap price (both for drinks and tapas). Worth to try!

Dined here after much debate, and I am so glad we did! It was excellent from the second we walked thru the door. We had breads,viva salad, a selection of tapas (including 2 portions of patatas bravas it was so good!), calamares, meatballs, tortilla, croquette all topped off with copius quantities of the nicest sangria we have ever had. There were two guitarists/singers playing live as we ate which added to the enjoyment of our night. There is an outside area at the back which would be lovely had we chosen to eat out on a beautiful night in Dublin. Couldn't manage dessert but for sure we will be back here on our next visit. Thank you to our two brilliant hosts, it was amazing.

I have been three times there and will repeat! the guys working there are just fantastic and offer a great help to have a good time! I did my Hen Party there, as they have a room dowstairs and it was the best surprise of my life! Good Sangria, great tapas, tortilla is truly recommended. I recommend this place

Visited here due to it being in top ten on tripadvisor rating but as nice as it was I would just say nothing was not good but nothing was outstanding either. Really it was just OK. Disappointed as only licensed for wine and hubby ( heathen that he is) only drinks lager so he ended up on cokes.

Had a really nice midweek evening meal here. There was live music, friendly staff, good house wine and great tapas. The tapas and wine were very reasonably priced, house wine <20e tapas 4-7e (from memory). I can highly recommend this place. Our entire meal including a bottle of wine was around 50e, fantastic!
