“Amazing birthday celebration”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I came to Vasco's to celebrate the birthday of my wife. We were surprised by a big selection of wine and international food! My wife chose Lobster Thermidor which was absolutly terrific! I select the sirloin steak, which was exactly cooked as I requested!
While our dessert was served, all the staff came together and sung for my wife. We were deeply touched by the care which were surrounded during the whole dinner. The team of Vasco's made the celebration unforgettable and special!

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I stayed at the Hilton and came to this restaurant with a colleague. I thought the food was good, but it wasn't great. However, I though the service was very good. If you are staying at the hotel, and want something convenient - come here. If not, I would search for other places.

“Perfect service and food”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

It was the first time when I and my wife went to Vasco's. As soon as we enter the restaurant we got welcomed by very friendly staff. We try the Mughlai chicken and the Tenderloin. The taste and the quality of the food were amazing. The staff was at all time extremely attentive and amiable. There is no doubt that we gonna be back. Thanks Vasco's team for this great time.

“Excellent service and fab food!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We found this restaurant by accident, and we are very glad we did. We think it is probably one of the best experience we've had. The service is friendly and the manager was very nice to us, offering a fabulous wine. Despite the fact we went in at about 7 pm there were a chef who arranged a super fresh looking salad/ starter counter. While it is very hot that time, we decided to go for a salad from the monthly special and an indian tandoori chicken with red gravy. We really enjoyed it while the flavours are just amazing in combination with a real charcoal touch. We were served from Henry who paid a lot attention to us and friendly smiling. Our whole experience makes us come back to Vascos soon...with our friends.
