Returned to Dubai for work a few weeks ago and made certain I stayed at the Hilton Rashi Al Khaimah just to stop in again at Pura Vida for dinner. The view was incredible, the food was delicious as always, and I was able to visit with Chef Silva who made certain each and every guest felt welcomed and left... More

The atmosphere, food and wonderful staff make this the best place to eat in the Hotel and RAK. Nothing is too much effort for any of the friendly staff. Harinder in particular was amazing, such a professional and friendly man. Not a restaurant for Vegetarians as it excels with the various cuts of meats. I cannot believe that it is... More

The Churrasco at Pura Vida was without doubt the culinary highlight of our stay at the Hilton Ras al Khaimah. The quality of the food and the service was impeccable - special thanks to Harinder for guiding us through the menu and for his general helpfulness.

Best steak on town - if not even in the whole UAE. If you like meat, good service and a chef that takes care of his customers in a way you never seen...this is the place for you. Special thanks to our waiter Moses and the chef Marco for this special meal.... We'll come back...that's for sure.
