I googled this restaurant and looked at reviews. I wanted somewhere to celebrate my birthday. I am trying to think of the negatives but this restaurant had none !!!!! From the moment we sat down to the food and way we was treated, the service and food was excellent. I can honestly say I had a memorable birthday in a... More

Even though we had a big lunch we decided to go for the THE CHURRASCO. Meat meat with more meat. It was delicious. A tip is DON'T eat the bread you don't need it and be careful with the sides. You don't want to "waste" space for the meat. Each cut of meat is carved table side by the waiter... More

Three years ago we had one of our worst restaurant/meaty experiences here. This time we went with trepidation. A brief hiccup when we waited to be seated in an understaffed restaurant did nothing to allay our fears. The food and the gallant service more than made up for it. Superb attention to culinary taste and detail befitting the master chef... More

Thank you to chef Marco! Despite being 'off duty' on one of our visits to Pura Vida he was still available to offer advice about my preferred choice of steak. Hubby has just one thing to say about the Churrasco feast ..."make sure that you are hungry" In our opinion you get the best meat cuts in the world here... More

Our second visit to the Pura Vida and certainly one we were looking forward to. The meat was to die for and melted in the mouth ( lamb & New York strip). Staff very attentive and friendly, never an empty glass. Earge, our waiter was exception and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended and definitely worth a visit.

I did celebrate my 70th birthday at the Pura Vida, one of the restaurants att Hilton Ras Al Khaimah beach. They are specialazed in meat. We had their grilled lamb chops with a fantastic souce. What I missed was a good beer, but they just had Heiniken and that is not what I call a good beer.

I went to Pura Vida with my wife for our anniversary dinner while we were staying at the Hilton. We didn't have a reservation but we're easily able to find a table. It was an excellent experience and I would definitely recommend it if you're looking to enjoy the best of Brazilian steak. She ordered the New York strip and... More

Best meat in UAE i guess. Friendly and handsome guxs in the service, the drinks were very slow..... But they should get rid of the Chief Marco. A guy you can't take..... If he is gone I will come back !!!!

Best Meat E.V.E.R. Very expensive, but it's worth every single cent. We took the all-you-can-eat-meat and were amazed by the quality of the food! Meats were all incredible! So very pleased! :) I would definitely go back here to have another special night! Note: In the all-you-can-eat package there is NO DRINKS! :)
