We've visited Vari many times before and always found it superb. We couldn't say the same this time.
We visited on a Saturday night at 8pm. The service throughout the evening was poor. We had to ask four times for a wine glass! The menus have changed to cheap laminate things which made us feel as if we were in a burger bar. The dessert menus were grubby sheets of paper.
This used to be our favourite restaurant - lovely ambience, fab service and lovely food. The overall experience is not anywhere near as good but the food is still lovely.
