Burrito go-to place

I love La Vida's burritos and their margaritas. LaVida is fun for a night out with friends with a nice variety.

Much better than most of the limited options for Central American cuisine in Midcoast Maine (or Maine in general, actually). The ingredients are fresh, the atmosphere is nice -casual but well put together, and the food is prepared well.

My husband and I have been a few times, and the rest of my family has also been several times (parents have a vacation home outside of Belfast, sister is local). We all love it! My husband and I usually just go for a margarita or two and the nachos with pulled pork, both of which are awesome. We've gotten... More

Yesterday I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at La Vida, Belfast's home of good Mexican and Caribbean food. I was craving fish and the fish of the day was Cod, grilled with a perfectly seasoned fruit and savory topping. Accompanied by Grilled Zucchini, rice and black beans, it was a perfect lunch. La Vida also offers chips and salsa to all... More

We stopped in the other night after exploring the main streets of Belfast and were treated to a surprisingly spicy meal. I say surprising because most of the mexican restaurants I've been to in New England have toned down the heat and the cumin and the garlic to a point where I was beginning to think I didn't really like...

I visited this restaurant for dinner with my in-laws while on the way back from a trip to Acadia National Park. I liked the mix of Mexican and Caribbean options on the menu. I actually went the Caribbean route and tried out the Grilled Jerk Chicken Sandwich. They said it was the spiciest thing on the menu and they weren't... More

After being ignored at Chases we stopped in here for the first time. Pleasant atmosphere and quickly seated and served. Food was standard Mexican fare but tasty. 4 stars due to the excellent and friendly service.

We stopped in on a whim. My bf is from mexico and prefers that cuisine. The meats with the entries are delicious! The sides are eh. Not bad but pale in comparison to the meats. Have been a couple times.

It was nice to find this fun and colorful place still open shortly before 9 on a Monday night (rare around here, alas), with a fun menu and decor, plus friendly, attentive service and decent prices. However: we only wish we could say the same about the food! I have to agree with the reviewers saying they really wanted to... More

Let me start by saying that the service is usually excellent, and the margaritas are AWESOME. I wish they had more menu options, and, unless I'm mistaken, I think they no longer replenish your chips and salsa. The prices here are a little higher, but the service, food, and atmosphere ate all very good.
