Meat Overload!!

The restaurant is located on the other side of hilton resort, facing the Arabian Sea which brings up a little touch of a relaxing scenery, the restaurant's setting was little bit confusing for having an Arabic theme on it. The food and service was really amazing, I can say that it's in harmony. I... read more

I ate there in February 2015, twice, it is a big restaurant and it has no atmosphere at all and the inside is like a high street café, the food was just ok, and it wasn't cheap, the staff did their best but the overall restaurant is not good, we would not eat there again.

This restaurant is a great choice for some one looking for a good place to dine with good food and great service. Every thing served to us was of great quality both in terms of taste and flavor. The service was impecable and very intutive, which was strange as the restaurant was quiet busy. It seemed like it was the... More

We visited Pura Vida for the Masquerade evening event - it was amazing. The meat was truly wonderful, really tremendous. My youngest is a little fussy, but they offered a kids meal too, which was great too. As ever in this resort, the staff were brilliant at all times. The belly dance show was a nice accompaniment too!

It's been a while since my last visit to this incredible Restaurant, but as far as I recognize, this place is still being run by the same people, which means that it remains a unique small piece of Brazil on the shore of Persian Gulf with a beautiful sea view from the terrace. It is situated in a secluded, cozy... More

Went for a birthday dinner, therereally wasnt much decor but you don't really need much when you're sitting right by the beach. Food was incredible, pricey but that's what you expect at a hotel restaurant. Service was outstanding, waiters were really helpful, always alert. Seriously impressed.

Pura Vida is an excellent churrascaria style restaurant. The ambience is a bit cheezy, but the service and the food are excellent. The staff in particular go out of their way to try and help tailor the meal to your preferences - always a sign of a good restaurant. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Ras Al Khaimah.
