Vivat Bacchus, EC4A 4LL

Modern European restaurant (with South African influences) in Farringdon. They also have a second branch near London Bridge.

They can cater for vegans with warning (possibly also without warning, not sure). They are super-fast at answering email.

They have an absolutely fantastic cheese selection, in a special cheese cupboard which the cheese sommelier will take you into if you ask nicely and let you choose things. Friendly staff, and also a very good wine selection. The vegan option was good (I can't remember if I ordered from the menu or warned-in-advance, though), and I am informed that the meat (they do slightly odd things like springbok & ostrich, as well as the usual steak / fish / etc options) was very good. I'd definitely go back. -- Juliet

Update on veganness: last time I went there (March 2007) the vegan provision was tasty but not terribly exciting (salad; risotto; option of sorbet or fruit salad). I did enjoy it but it wasn't exactly extravagant -- Juliet
