Never ate at the place! Only see the vibe and while enjoying a great meal at a great price at bush Tavern the grumpy or drunk customers spoil my dinner by smoking outside right on the doorstep.

We visited Mundo Vida during the peak December period. From the time we arrived till the time we left staff were always on hand despite the restaurant having having numerous year end parties on the go. The menu is comprehensive and caters for all tastes. I sampled the Jalapeño Sirloin, which was delicious! The sea views matched the great food,... More

Service, 5 star, George, the Maitre d, suggested 4 different dishes and hit the nail on the head every time! Bravo! Food, do you get 7 stars? If so they deserve every one, chicken and... More

The trouble with dinner in Umdloti is you don't get to see the beautiful view! Food is good and service is professional and personable. Enjoyed the steak, but not the standard café pre-prepared chips.

This is the most welcoming restaurant I have been too. It's specials are to die for without being expensive. The wine list compliments all dishes and mention should also be made of the cocktails in particular the Rose Infused Martini. The views of the Indian Ocean are spectacular.

We had dinner at Mundo Vido and chose a table outside overlooking the ocean.The atmosphere was relaxing and food was tantalizing.We tried the linefish and lamb chops as main meals and the fish cake as a starter.The plates were well presented and the food is definitely worth a visit.Each morsel melted in my mouth.
