“Fair play...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I´ve just read the very many great reviews of this eatery...and conclude that on the night we dined there we hit on an off day. There was a tangible absence of any real welcome ( OK, it was 6.45pm and we were no doubt the first through the door, en route to the airport later on in the evening ) - more a grunt that acknowledged the restaurant was open ! The Sangria was good, as were the starters of prawn crochette potatoes and prawn cocktail... 2 of the key items on the menu however were not available - "they promise we´ll have the lamb shanks by tomorrow" - and when it arrived the sirloin steak was most definitely past its sell-by date. To be fair, the chef duly tasted the meat and agreed that it was not good. We were not subsequently charged for this meal. Our deserts consisted of the usual shop-bought creme caramels...
Uninspiring food ( at best ) and an underwhelming host...

“Billsview”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

V & P has an awful lot going for it. First of all, the decor and lighting are very special. Whoever designed it had romance in mind and our visit was really memorable. Our waitress was a lovely lady who made us feel welcome and she was extremely attentive while we were there. We both decided to have rump steak and it turned out well done as we had asked and tasted absolutely scrumptious. We both agreed that they were probably the tastiest steaks we had ever eaten in any restaurant. All in all it was a really nice meal and I thoroughly recommend the restaurant to you.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We've eaten twice at V&P and have enjoyed it both times, Patrick the Chef owner really understands flavor and seasons his food well getting the very best out of his produce, with Viv looking after front of house offering excellent friendly service and attention to detail. Good food which is very reasonably priced, we will definitely be back.read less
