Went to Trader Vice for a birthday meal for our son and we were delighted with the service we received. The food was very nice and the cocktails hit the spot. They also have Guinness on tap, which went down a treat!!!

For the past 20 odd years, the lounge has never disappointed me, except for long wait on the week-end if no booking was done for a table. The music is traditionally Latin American bands, currently Cuban band starting 9pm every night. In one word the atmosphere in the lounge bar area after 9pm turns in to "Groovy" very small dance...

I was shocked entering this restaurant as I always used to go for dinner and it was such an amazing place. This time around, the furniture is worn out, very smoky lounge and extremely loud! Food was average as due to full occupancy (which seems that the food was made quick without proper care)! I really do wish the service,... More

It's a bit worn out, having seen better days. A smoke heavy lounge, with a tired menu of overly fried tid-bits. Generally, a very good latin band, but that's pretty much it. Needs a rework
