Great night out for our weekend away with the children. Shared the 500gm rib of beef platter. Everything on it tasted amazing and was cooked perfectly. Finished off with the 'everything' dessert. 7 scoops of icecream that all tasted great, brownie, wafers, hazelnuts, it was all delicious and made our girls eyes light up with the presentation.
Staff were accommodating to our needs and offered everything to our wants.
The children even had colouring in that was educational too. Bonus!

Fantastic food. We had the risotto and the venison mains and they were both excellent. Wonderful presentation. You are dining at the Ibis which takes a little getting used too. But if you are looking for quality food you won't be disappointed.

Great food to a high standard. The prawn entree was lovely, beautifully presented with some great flavours. Loved the fuchsia flowers on it. The steak was delicious. The chips light and crunchy, not your normal dry chips. The souffle and potato gratin were also lovely. Could not fault it.

Lovely food, lovely service. The decor is nice but it is connected to a hotel so it's got a bit of a lobby vibe to it...however, it's still a very nice option for a tasty meal.

Loved everything about Vivant. Our waiter was lovely and being the first to arrive for lunch (funnily enough) our food and drinks came out in a timely manner and were very tasty.
The portion sizes were massive. Very glad I got the soup off the lunch entree menu instead of a full sized lunch option. My partner got the fish and chips and although normally a big eater couldnt finish his!
Will definently come back either for lunch or dinner sometime!

Great food and flawless service. The souffle entree was the best I have tasted and the steak mains were perfectly cooked. Lovely location and ambience as well, with plenty of seating options and a nice view out onto the street. The staff were very friendly and had a great sense of humor which you can't teach. Would love to eat here again!

The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. They quickly provided a high chair when they saw we had an infant with us and colouring in material for our toddler. I also appreciated that they seated us away from the other diners so we didn’t need to worry too much about our sometimes noisy children.

The food was faultless- tempura oysters, followed by pork belly for me and scotch fillet for my husband. The children’s menu was varied and though my daughter was a little less impressed by the pan fried fish fillet rather than the usual deep fried fare, I thought it was much better than food that usually features on a children’s menu.

Highly recommended for a meal with the family and great value too.

Happy hour from 4-6 in the bar beforehand was a nice surprise. The food took over 30 minutes but was very well presented and totally gourmet so well worth the wait. Husband had the 500h rib steak, massive but excellent. I would highly recommend this for a treat!

Delicious food, and even without the first table discount the menu pricing is a bargain! We had chickpea and lemon soup, mussels, and my husband's favourite bacon fat potatoes. We dined with our 6 year old and the menu options and environment means this is a good choice for family dining. The quiet ambience of the restaurant was a pleasant escape from the bustle of the city streets. Good service, good coffee. Would happily return. Thank you Vivant.

Food was good and staff were friendly. We had a couple of hiccups but only because the staff member was brand new and they were quickly rectified. The atmosphere left a lot to be desired though....I hadn't actually appreciated that this was a hotel restaurant!

Service was excellent, attentive but not over the top. We started with the sharing platter which was spot on. For the main my partner had the rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection. I had the chefs special which was lamb rump which again was cooked to perfection and came with a delicious sauce, kumera side dish and steamed veges. 10/10 would definitely be back!

Overall very good dining experience, first time at vivant and will return for sure. We had the platter for 2 which was everything you'd hope for in a platter. Then the pork belly and the scotch fillet for our mains. Pork belly was a bit tough but the scotch was great. Service from our waitress was exceptional.

Lovely little restaurant, staff were very friendly and helpful!
Comfy chairs to relax after you’ve had too much to eat!

Staff were helpful in assisting with my food intolerances which is always a bonus as it can be embarrassing!

Food came out fairly quickly and portion sizes were great!
I had the salmon with the potatoes and salad, salmon was very soft and delicious!
Partner had the curry and roti, was delicious!

All in all great experience and great food!
