Offering a selection of handcrafted Botanas, nachos, tacos, burritos, quesadillas and pizzadillas. Great food flavours using only the freshest quality ingredients sourced from ethical farmers and suppliers are always the real reason for the popular success of this kitchen.
In addition to seriously good food at incredibly pocket friendly prices, VIVA! boasts one of the liveliest bars in Cape Town with crowds sipping on jugs of their legendary frozen margaritas whilst tapping along to the romping rhythms of Mexicano Mariachi, Elvis, Trini Lopez, Johnny Cash and other true Tex- Mex legends.
We loved the athmosphere! The margaritas were a treat! The nachos looked very impressive the top and middle layer more jucy than the rest of the plate that were quite dry, we always order more guacamole. But always a nice experience.
We (9 of us) visited last night. When I arrived I was pointed to table, but not offered anything to drink. 10 mins later my friends arrived. The service was shocking - a few times we had to go looking for the waiter, when we wanted to order (again we went to find the waiter) we were told to please wait 5 mins as there were a few tables they were dealing with. Shocking! The waiter did not come and ask if we needed anything. We tried ordering coffee and were told they don't do coffee or cappuccinos. Most of the food was ok, the one dish was very tough.
My friend booked ages ago and we were celebrating her birthday - I am extremely disappointed with what was meant to be a pleasant experience.
