Seafood marinara was extremely disappointing, no flavour, cheap pasta & minimal & dry seafood. Zucchini flowers very average, Salmon entree was nice however. Wine menu overpriced. Considering the food cost I think we expected a lot better!

However it would be remiss not to mention the Vivo traditional lemonade, which was... More

Love this spot. Cocktail hour starts at 3 and there are lots to choose from. Tapas food is great too. Excellent place to relax and watch sun go down. Also found my new favourite drink - a cojito. Enjoy.
