    Good restaurant, at half capacity (social distancing) which was actually very, very nice for noise levels! We had to chase for our drinks as the service was a little slower, but the food and drinks when they arrived were lovely. We were the last group of 4 to leave and they didn't usher us out, which was great and that will make me go there many times more!

    This is a great little restaurant that leaves the big chains behind in terms of service and flavour! The food is amazing with something for everyone, lots of gluten free and vege options. Finally, you must sample the cocktails, they really are something special and really well priced

    Such a gorgeous little restaurant on our high street. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming. The drinks are delicious - I recommend the La Paloma! And the food has generous portions and great flavour. Have been here on repeat and have a great experience every time.

    Fantastic food and service!! I love this place. Staff are so friendly and helpful and the chef works his magic with the food which never disappoints. Had the Seafood Platter and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. It’s our favourite place to eat.

    Service was excellent and we felt very attended to, The restaurant wasn't packed but certainly wasn't empty and the staff created a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone loved their food, my only complaint would be, that the bean burger I had was super dry with the bun and the fries,would have been great with some salsa or something similar. Otherwise great experience and would 100% go again

    I went for a meal for my mothers 60th birthday over the weekend. I asked for my starter to come with my main, My starter came and then no main and when everyone had finished eating their mains and wanted to leave they said they was just plating my main up. i rejected it and they still charged me for the meal.

    We have dined at Vivo Latino before Lickdown and we weren’t disappointed this time either. Glad to see them open again. Friendly atmosphere, delicious food. Already booked to return with our two teenage daughters who are sure to enjoy too.
