We visited Viva Espana and had the set menu for £12.95. We received more and more dishes. To find out it was all you can eat. Amazing food and so cheap. Very quick service. This is not your typical all you can eat restaurant it has a lot more class!!! Not to mention an amazing meal

I arranged a Christmas party at the venue and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were reserved the entire downstairs of the restaurant and even when I over filled our booking extra chairs and more space was provided. Everyone had a great night. There was plenty of great tasting food and the intimate atmosphere was perfect. The... More
