Went for Sunday lunch at this family-run tapas bar. The place is really Spanish looking with beautiful decor. We were greeted warmly by our friendly Andalusian host, who we chatted to for a while before placing our orders. We had tasty tapas starters of patatas bravas and salmorejo. We selected a good Spanish wine to go with the main event - a wonderful seafood paella that was really filling. Looking forward to our next visit to Viva!

We had a lovely family meal in Viva on Mother's Day.There was an immediate friendly atmosphere with the waiters establishing a rapport with the grumpiest 15 year old!The food was amazing value with the patatas bravas a particular hit.The cheese and meat board with quince was a meal in itself.Somehow we managed to squeeze in a pastel de chocolate- a perfect indulgence for Mother's Day while the accompanying hot chocolate brought a whole new dimension to this day of treats.I look forward to returning and trying the rest of the menu.

We had an excellent authentic tapas meal in Vivas. The food was terrific, the atmosphere was friendly. The service was very good & informative,on the advice of the waiter we had a couple of excellent bottles of Spanish Rioja which really enhanced the evening. We would have no hesitation in recommending Viva restaurant to others, and will definitely be returning ourselves.

Having never tried real tapas before, it's officially my new favourite food after trying Viva last night - our whole experience was just impeccable. The staff were incredibly accommodating, not minding one bit when two of our party cancelled last minute and allowing us use our voucher though it had expired two days previously. There was an amazing Spanish guitar duet playing all evening which really made it feel like you were sitting in a little tapas bar in Spain! The servers were all so friendly and good-natured as well as being really efficient. As for the food, everything we tried was absolutely gorgeous and the portions were very generous too. I would recommend trying Viva to anyone, and can't wait to go back myself.

Myself, husband and daughter came here in the new year. We loved the atmosphere and loved their menu choice for tapas - so authentic and really made us feel like we were back in Granada, Spain. Jugs of sangria were also delicious. Staff very hospitable especially since we were with our 6 year old daughter. Will definitely go back and have recommended it to friends!

Super meal - we are both vegetarians - not a lot of vege food without aubergine (which is the one veg neither of us like, and yet is very popular on vege menus) However, we really enjoyed what we had!
