Q Vardis

About Q Vardis

Q Vardis, a riverside restaurant and music bar, started its eventful live as a small bistro built in the early eighties and underwent years of redevelopment before ending up as the stylish restaurant and night club it is today. Set amidst luscious greenery on a riverbank, inside the setting is less tranquil but equally enticing, offering both fine dining, a large dance floor for shape throwing until the early hours as well as a VIP Piano lounge and a state of the art sound system. The restaurant at Q Varids is famed for its Sunday roasts, but also offers an expansive range of modern European favourites on its a la carte menu.
