The lunch and starter menu was sparse, could have done with another 2 mains, unless one is vegetarian inclined. I had the mussels which were tiny, and not enough, thankfully I filled up on the bread starter, Otherwise, tasty clean food, and excellent service.

My experience was excellent, but some of my guests were not happy with getting under-cooked meat, contrary to their requests. Very hard surfaces of decor meant sound was amplified, but at least no loud music!

I have dined at this restaurant quite a number of times and always find it to be consistent and great value for money. The location is great and the bar is better than at many ibis hotels that I have stayed at. Very convenient for people walking up to the Wellington Stadium.

If you wanted to exclude WOP burger from first table, you should have mentioned that in your website or first table conditions!

Great night out for our weekend away as a family. Shared the 500gm beef platter and it was perfectly cooked. Finished off the night with the everything dessert, and the girls eye lit up. Everything tasted great and was cooked well. Very accommodating staff.

Had a long overdue catch up with a friend here for dinner. I had the Venison, it was beautiful, we didn’t have dessert but we had coffee. It was a quiet night I guess for customers so it was just the way I like it, not too crowded and noisy. Service was ok but I felt visited by the waiter far too many times, it was very annoying as we had to stop halfway through our conversations to tel him everything was just fine. I’m used to the waiter checking up on my meal once and that’s it, not more. So if this can be passed on to staff thanks. And please pass my compliments to the Chef , that venison is unforgettable and I’ll be back for more of it :)

This was our third time at Vivant. We go back because the standard of the food is very good. It is beautifully presented, always piping hot and delicious.

The food served at Vivant is the best-presented food I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The wait staff were absolutely lovely and were very helpful with recommendations from the menu. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very relaxing. My favourite part of the meal was the mango creme brulee, it was divine!

The dining atmosphere is nice and relaxing and the food is excellent. Waiting staff were very friendly and polite and there was plenty of parking in the evening over the weekend. Over all a fantastic place for dinner. Will be dining here again in the near future.

Beautiful atmosphere Food was not as described on the menu, Fish of the day was over seasoned and very salty the Creme brulee was burnt it's hard to communicate with staff when english is not their strong point and didn't understand what we were saying, just nodding their head and saying yes but we were asking a question
