La Vida in the quaint village of Ratoath has a lovely menu and is very comfortable with tasteful decor, a pleasant hostess, super food and nice background music! Perfect for couples and small groups. We tried the Iberico sausage with potato cake which was divine and cooked to perfection and the black and white pudding on toast was absolutely delicious... More

3 of us had dinner there tonight and have to say it was as good as expected. This is by a mile the best restaurant in the area. The food was excellent and the atmosphere with a singer and keyboard player was outstanding. I had goats cheese for starter and duck for mains and both were top class. My guests... More

I had a special party here for 28 people on a Sat night and every aspect from start to finish was top class. They organized the entertainment which was a singer and keyboard player at the start and the Latin American dancers during and after the dinner. The food was also excellent with a choice of 3 starters and 3... More
