“Good meal in Humacao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

For our first meal in PR, we ended up at Pura Vida in the Palmanova complex in Palmas del Mar. The food was pleasant and well presented. The service was friendly.

“Terrific little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The inside is just a bar but there is table service outside. The drinks were not as expensive as other places in the plaza and the wait staff were super friendly. We were there on 2 different nights and both times they had gotten clams that weren't on the menu. The chefs made us clams casino and clams sautéed with onions..both were wonderful!

“Fresh food, well done, overpirced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Not much atmosphere here. The plaza is a little too active for a pleasant outside meal and inside it's more of a bar then a restaurant. The food however is great (fish is outstanding) and service if friendly and efficient. If you don't mind the price, god place to bring kids and let them roam the plaza while you enjoy some good adult food.

Some ladies and I are currently staying at Palmas del Mar. We ate here by recommendation of our unit neighbors a few nights ago. Good food, attentive service - overall nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.
