I booked at the restaurant for two and had to switch up to three at the last minute. The restaurant was fully booked but they squeezed us in. I was surprised to discover Tuesday was half price night! Of course the place was packed. Despite...More

A great meal here, particularly enjoyed the antipasti meat platter to begin with. Followed by a very tastey steak. Only criticism would be was that the atmosphere was quite dead!

A few drinks after a business meeting starting in the Head of Steam, and 7 of us needed somewhere to eat. HoS does do food, but I wanted to show them something different. Broad Chare was fully reserved, so went next door one more to...More

Italian at heart, the mood at the Quayside Caffe Vivo is lively, the style relaxed. Cafe by day, simple supper place at night, it's food is honest, joyful and full of sunshine.
