Typical Saturday night last minute decision..... let's get out for a meal, let's go local. Vasko in Upper Heidelberg Road was able to accommodate us! Highlights: Warm welcome Friendly staff The Rocking special (my wife can be fussy, but she raved!) The Prawn pasta (can...be hit or miss but it hit!!) Chocolate Lava Something (if there's no chocolate on the menu, we just don't go! ...her rule not mine!) Q: What reason is there to go beyond your local area every time? Ans: No reason!!More

Went to a function here last week. Things were pretty well managed in the good space at the back. Mercifully, the food was good and plentiful and there was ample seating. The staff did a great job too. Nice place.

We have been going to Vasco for some time now on a semi-regular basis for lunch during the week. The food is consistently good and the staff are always friendly and obliging. We would highly recommend. Has a great lunch time special Menu. Love the...Risotto - me the chicken and husband the mushroom. Very tasty. The 3 cheese Chicken parmigiana is also a hit with a delicious tomato sauce.More

I am absolutely appalled by the customer service I just experienced at this establishment. I previously had a good experience at this restaurant and thought I would treat my friends to a night out. We didn’t have a reservation but thought we’d arrive early in...the hope of securing a table. The waiter was polite and led us to our table. Drinks were ordered soon after and arrived in a timely manner. After that we waited, waited and waited. After 60 minutes of waiting with no check in from the waitress she eventually made her way over and apologised for the wait and asked if we wanted to order some garlic bread. We politely declined and asked how much longer the wait would be to which she responded the food should be ready in 15 minutes. 5 minutes later a male waiter approached us and also apologised for the delay and explained that it was quite a busy night. I acknowledged his apology and continued to wait. The food finally arrived and it was delicious. Probably because we had been waiting for 1.5 hours and were eating our own intestines by this point! We wrapped things up and made our way to the register when my friend politely mentioned to I’m assuming the owner (middle aged lady with dark hair) that it was rather disappointing that we had waited for over an hour and no further apology was offered or discount applied. The owner appeared to be quite taken aback by our comment and continued to ask “if we had walked in or did we actually make a reservation?” To which my friend responded that “I understand we didn’t have a reservation, however you could’ve mentioned how long of a wait it would been for food” she responded with “What do you want me to say?! It’s the busy Christmas period what do you expect?” In a defensive manner. Hands down this would have to be the most disappointing customer service I have ever encountered. Do not go here!More

We were disappointed with Vasko because it was so noisy. Five of us ate a meal but we could barely hear each other. The food was good but a long time coming. We were offered bread while we were waiting, probably at a cost!More

We dropped in for dinner on a Friday night. There was a function in progess at the time, the staff were great. They were attentive and the food was great too. I must compliment the kitchen, they were keeping up with huge platters for the...party and the restaurant - well done! Everything came out in a timely manner and nicely presented. It was a little noisey but, that's expected. I would sit nearer to the front of the restaurant if you have problems with noise and hearing.More

Recently had my 21st / going away party at Vasko. Nothing but compliments for the family run business! They were extremely flexible and accommodating to what I requested in regards to food (incl. allergies), decorations, bar tab and other services I hired (DJ & photographer)....The back function room was a great size for the 100 ish guests who attended for the cocktail party. It presents itself in a modern and trendy way, receiving compliments from guests as they entered. Would recommend and definitely go back for another function or dinner (the food was amazing!)More
