    Place done out really well in a laid-back South American vibe inc. the music. Waiter friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Cocktails good and reasonably priced. And most importantly of course the food was extremely tasty and generous portions. Easy five star rating.

    Great food and excellent service. Busy lunch service before the rugby but the staff managed to keep on top of things throughout. Huge selection of S American food all of which tasted really good. So glad we found out about this place. Well worth the short walk out of the city centre

    I would like to thank everyone at Vivo Latino for looking after our party of 20 during our visit on 6/2/20. Fabulous food in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The staff on duty were very extremely helpful. Special thanks to Alex for co-ordinating the booking and meal choices. It was a very successful evening.

    Great restaurant chose for my daughters 21st based on reviews and wasn’t disappointed! We were a large group of 12 and everyone enjoyed their meal great choice on the menu far superior to the chain restaurants! Generous portions of food! Cocktails were on the strong side for me would be better in larger glass with more mixers but that’s just my preference. Would definitely recommend and plan to return

    Excellent service and great food! Atmosphere was super friendly and relaxed. Only the one waiter from what we could see but he was managing fine and made our experience really worth whole. Definitely would return.

    Food was faultless. Loved every course (except for the tacos as I’ve had better). Portions were decent sizes too. There was one waiter and it was 2 days before Christmas. The waiter did an amazing job juggling all he had to do and didn’t stress once. Really impressed and would recommend!

    Start by walking in, the decor is a treat. Just a little bit of everything Soith American Latino. We chose a couple of starters which were pretty good to taste. Not a huge menu bit something for everyone and a good variety. The Bon Bons were pretty good and a side of cranberry chutney set them off nicely. We chose a pretty popular main each The turtle bean sauce was fantastic and spice was just how you like it, just ask. The waiter was friendly, knowledgable and on point with timing. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and it beats the chains such as Chiquito, reasonable too. Loved our visit, thank you.

    Friday night between Christmas and New Year bit this little gem served up some excellent food and Argentinian Malbec wine! Worth seeking out on Cowbridge Road

    Where to start Atmosphere was excellent, food and service was top notch. I had the mexican bruschetta to start which was a particular highlight. Plenty of latin bottled beer and vast cocktail menu as well. Will definitely be back to sample more of the menu. My only complaint... I was sat under an air conditioning fan and it was blowing directly at me all meal but just left my jumper on! Easily the best of its kind in wales let alone cardiff Make sure you book a table to avoid being dissapointed

    First visit here and very impressed with the quality of food. The Mexican bruschetta, fajitas and jerk lamb cutlets were all excellent. Prices are above average but reasonable for the quality of food.

    After researching restaurants online, we were extremely happy with Vivo Latino. Although it was a little bit quiet when we went ( a week night), the staff were very attentive and the food tasted delicious and was reasonably priced. It was a great find and will definitely revisit!

    This little South American restaurant easily trumps the chain Las Iguana. The three or four times I've been there with friends, I'd say it improves every time I go. Super friendly staff with attentive service (but not overly so). Staff are well trained and know their menu, which is essential. The two of us had a starter and main course each, shared a bottle of Malbec and two glasses of cava. All that was just under £80. Perhaps not the cheapest on Cowbridge Road East but definitely worth a try.

    Staying in Cardiff for weekend, googled local restaurants and here popped up, we liked look of menu, so decided to try. Was a busy Saturday evening, but after only a short wait we had a table. Nice friendly staff and menu way bigger than shows online, picked lots of different item to try out. Food was very tasty. Cocktails great too. We were not rushed at all. Highly recommend and would visit again!

    Had a really enjoyable meal here on a weekday evening. Really chilled atmosphere, makes you feel at ease straight away. Service was very attentive and the food was as good as we had hoped. Cannot recommend enough for other fans of Mexican cuisine!

    With my wife being Mexican I was not to sure if it would meet her expectations, I need not have worried the food we ordered so she told me was as if she was back home. The front waiter/barman was excellent he was both polite and knowledgable on the menu and drinks, his cocktails are well worth a try. When the food arrived all I can say was it was all excellently presented and perfectly cooked. This is a chef who knows his stuff trust me. If I had to criticise 1 thing then the restaurant could do with a little more heating. My wife could not remove her coat as it was too cold and with the winter months coming it could be a problem for some people, I personally found it chilly. The inside deco is simple but effective with bench seating great if you are in a group but just as well suited to couples. Plan to go back again this week as the menu is so vast so so much to try. So much food so little time.

    We went last night for the first time. Classic nachos and Mexican brushetta to start. Both AMAZING! Shows how terrible chain restaurants can be after going here. My husband has chicken tinja burrito and I had braised beef cheeks. Very good potions of food. Too much for me and a bit spicy but still loved it prob not spicy for many as my husband said it wasnt I just cant handle much. Throughout I had great pina Clara's freshly made. Will be going back
