First of all I am a bit confused as to the choice of the restaurant name because "Viva" means live or life and "Zapatos" translates to shoes. Perhaps one day I will find out the secret behind this Restaurants' name. I have only been to...More

Good Greek food. Lovely staff. Quick service. Greeks favourite, which is usually a sign that it's great. Also like the music on Saturday night. Even a vegetarian can eat Greek!
