Viana is a little restaurant that has managed to combine cosiness with a feeling of luxury. Due to its petite size, the restaurant has a friendly atmosphere that has a homely feel, yet has a high standard of professional service and a beautiful interior design. It also has a small outside area at the front which is nice for a smokers break, but perhaps not the best for a dinning experience as it is located on a busy Broadway.
Viana's menu, although without a vast number of choices, offers traditional English and Continental food. Another aspect of the homeliness of the restaurant is indeed the food, namely, the home-made burger, which I would highly recommend. You know it's a good burger when the waiter asks you how you would like it cooked. All of the meals had generous portions, yet were served with an air of high class, a perfect combination of the posh and the pleasant.
The service was great, the waiters couldn't do enough for us and were happy to recommend their own favourite dishes and wines whilst serving us with professional and attentive attitudes. One of their recommendations was the mini crème brulee dessert selection, which on a taste test is nothing short of perfection! Viana also offers a selection of classic cocktails.
Viana is unfortunately located in an area that is know well known for dining experiences and is usually only visited by locals, however, if you happen to be in the Surbiton/Tolworth area, I would recommend a visit! It is located a ten minute walk from Tolworth station and a ten minute drive from Surbiton Station.
