“Excellent ”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

I've taken a number of work guests to this restaurant over the last six months, the service is always first class. The food has consistently been great and well presented. I highly recommend it as a place to stop in for a meal as you won't be disappointed.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

What a restaurant! We were lucky to be seated in one of their great booths at the window. Food was fantastic, I couldn't stop thinking about the quail entree for days afterwards! Everything was just great, would happily return again and again! Thank you VSB and thank you Ksenia for looking after us!!

“Excellent fine dining”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

This is a classy establishment run by a friendly but professional husband-and-wife team serving excellent food. I wanted a nice place without too much noise to treat my lovely mother-in-law, and my expectations were met. We both had oysters as a entree and the fish-of-the-day main, the latter delivered by the chef himself (Andrew Clarke). The oysters were beautifully presented and delicious, and the fish was melt-in-your-mouth gorgeous. The amuse-bouche was a nice touch, too, and the chat with the hostess (Julia Clarke) was friendly without being overpowering. This is a great special-occasion choice, and I will definitely be back.

“A great lunch option”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We've previously been to VSB several times for dinner but happened to be strolling past in the early afternoon a few weeks back and dropped in for lunch. It was a very pleasurable experience; the peking duck and chicken parmigiana dishes were delicious and wonderfully presented, we made sure there was still room for desserts which were equally tasty and visually appealing.
We had no reason to think that lunch at VSB would be any less enjoyable than previous dinner experiences and we were definitely not disappointed.

“Visited for dessert and cocktails”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

We received a voucher for VSB for our engagement and decided to try it out with some friends for dessert and cocktails.We weren't able to make a booking because we weren't having dinner and they were booked out until about 9pm but offered to call us when they had a free table, which they did and we really appreciated it.The desserts were nice and the cocktails were amazing, and the guy who made the cocktails was nice enough to make a cocktail on request and be a bit flexible with the ingredients which made our night all the better. Restaurant is very dark, which I'm sure at that time of night is to reflect the natural light outside so people don't feel so illuminated but it was very hard to see.
