The Brazilian Chef in Puravida

We had a request for a dinner for 25 persons. The chef turned himself inside out to meet our demands. Vegetarian, organic, lactose free, sugar free, you name it and he did it! Starter, main course and pudding - fantastic! A great meal. Including natural wines. He was supported by the good food... read more

We visited Pura Vida twice on our honeymoon and each time our visit was outstanding. The staff (namely Earge and Bibek) were wonderful. They were knowledgable, genuine and entertaining. They were also very efficient! The food was out of this world, my new husband was overwhelmed by the quality of everything as was I. I will remember our visits forever... More

The restaurant is right at the end of the resort and looked like a nice setting, we went on a Saturday night and booked on the strength of the trip advisor reviews, I think I went to a different restaurant. It is very dark, you need the torch app on your phone to look at the menu and pay your... More

From the moment you arrive, you know you are in for a pleasant evening, hearty food accompanied perfectly by attentive, good natured staff. Whilst there is a varied menu, most customers go for the churasco - makes sense, given this is what the restaurant is famed for. If you love your meat, then this is the place for you -... More

This Brazilian restaurant is one of the best in any country. The service is very good but the quality of the food is outstanding. If you enjoy food served the Brazilian way then this is the restaurant. there is a warning however you will need an oversize appetite to really enjoy this sumptuous food.

Can't recommend this enough. Soooo much food, it's such a meat fest. We always ate inside due to having Young children who needed to sleep, and unfortunately it could be noisy. But overall a great night.

This restaurant really impressed us with it's selection of beautifully cooked bbq'ed meats. I'm not a big meat eater at all and generally go for chicken or fish but I was a convert for a few nights, the meat of a very high quality. Service was excellent and worth tipping!
