“Great location, kitchen without ambition”

Sitting outside overviewing the Kas new Marina, one would expect that a restaurant would take the challenge and create a new hotspot, a food sensation out there. Sorry, they missed a opportunities

“Great for vegetarians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Visited several times whilst on holiday and received very friendly service with good quality food whilst over looking the magnificent views across the marina. Not the cheapest but on the second occasion offered discount which was somewhat of a surprise. From a vegetarian point of view ( not easily catered for in Kas) the shrimp and avocado starter is to die for and the Shepherds salad is fresh whilst my carnivore of a husband loved the steak. Would definitely go back.

“Let down by the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Although in a very pleasant setting,with acceptable food,the whole experience was blighted by the over familiar waiter,with more interest in lazing in the sun than serving us( his only customers)To end the experience we were given a greatly exaggerated bill,which on complaining got us a refund,but did nothing to encourage us to go back.Pity as the place has such potential

“Great food, nice location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We have had a lovely dinner at Vati. Food was simply delicious with great presentations. I have read the reviews in advance so I was quite biased about the service. However, it was really nice with attentive waiters. It was just the amount of pace which gives you enough time to enjoy your food and the wonderful view of the marina. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially the chard rolled chicken and stuffed calamari.

“Always a service disaster”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

I have eaten at this restaurant on about 6 occasions now and to be totally frank I shudder when anyone suggests eating there. The service is appalling. Holding itself out to be an up market restaurant it appears incapable of hiring any staff who can handle even the simple task of taking orders. Sometimes it verges on Fawlty Towers. On one occasion the entire lighting system went out and we were sitting in the complete darkness, no problem there but when the waiter asked to take our order when we could not see the menus was funny beyond belief, after ordering wine still in complete darkness he tried to present the wine bottle so we could check the label - frankly we could have been going to drink bleach for all we knew. The food is ok but is not exactly comparable to a top class establishment anywhere else in the world, although that is what it aspires to. There are some strange combinations of sauces offered with some of the main courses, some taste like HP sauce. Over priced for what you get and wines far to expensive for what they are, I guess you are paying for the pleasant environment around you. The biggest problem this restaurant has is its inexperienced, over familiar staff - frankly they are not even good enough to serve in McDonalds - the restaurant started well with a good head waiter who did not appear to stay long and from then on, down hill all the way. Sorry but if you what a restaurant of any calibre the staff must invested in and trained, maybe the owner should think about taking orders, this might give the guests a feeling of security, they certainly should at least oversee there staff which does not appear to be of any importance. It appears the owners place more importance in meeting with their friends and eating with them rather than running the place. Sorry but true!
