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!

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.
