Description: Literally translated, Pura Vida means "Pure Life". That is the feeling of Pura Vida Tapas & Bar. It is a celebration of good food, wine, friends & fun. Different Latin American countries as well as Spain inspire chef-Owner Hector Santiago's menu. It is the blending of these Latino ingredients that makes Chef Santiago's food so unique. The food is done in tapas-size portions (appetizer size), meant for sharing. This enables guests to try lots of different items… and therefore get more enjoyment out of the dining experience. Sharing food with friends adds to the whole evening of enjoyment. Pura Vida has been voted "Best Tapas" by Creative Loafing, the Sunday Paper, and Atlanta Magazine, and "Restaurant of the Year" by the AJC.
