Very average hotel style breakfast for hotel residents. Meal is buffet style, but a poor choice of cold food (cereals, yougharts etc). Service was however friendly and muffins were fresh.

I usually never complain about food. Just don't support the place again and spread the word about it. Word of mouth is extremely powerful.
After a great movie at Gold Reef City, we supported the Vigour and Verve Diner...for their Pizzas as we saw the huge pizza oven and and had hungry tummies. It was bad! Hard pizza bases that needed a steak knife to cut, but the fork wouldn't go through it eitherThe toppings were fresh but the base was rock hard.

Here are a few tips for Vigo and Verve:
1. change you base recipe so it it more elastic and slightly thinner.
2. mix basil into your tomato base to make it more flavorful. Please also add salt and pepper.
3. use only fresh cheese. it tastes better and is less oily.
4. Do not add sliced tomatoes to your toppings. there is sufficient tomato in the base sauce.
5. do not put too many toppings that will overflow the pizza base. This more it too difficult to eat.

I hope you use these tips. it's in your best interest.

I would like to mention the Head Waiter Itumeleng for not charging us for the pizza. It was much appreciated.
