We visited the Pura Vida for the second time during our stay. The food is excellent, lots of choice for everyone. Service was excellent, in particular Ray who looked after us. All staff, Chef etc are exceptional.Definitely worth booking.

We have been to a number of similar style restaurants in Qatar and the UAE and must honestly say, this one was not as good as the others we have been to. The service was excellent but the variety was quite limited plus they had no ribs even though the menu lists it as one of the offerings. Some of... More

This was the third of 3 nights at the RAK Hilton, where we had tried a different restaurant each night. None of which impressed. This last one, pretty much took the biscuit. There are no signs regarding the location of Pura Vida. We asked at Reception and were told it's a buggy ride. We went outside to ask to be... More

Came here on a friends recommendation. Been to a restaurant serving food in a similar style and had huge expectations but it didn't live up to the hype. The flavours weren't great. It was awfully quiet and yet the service was still a little poor. Didn't enjoy the food and ended up wasting loads of it. To be fair to... More

Wonderful food and it just kept on coming. Amazingly delicious would go again. It is quite expensive (about £60 per person) and wine is expensive too. My only complaint is that they really try to rush you through a bottle of wine, they don't just let you sit back and enjoy it, Maybe they're on some kind of commission for... More

Lastnight we had an excellent meal at Pura Vida. The Bresaola & Lobster were excellent. We had a great meal in lovely surroundings. Well worth a visit, see you soon.

Beautiful setting overlooking the sea. The food is great, all the different cuts of meat, and so tender and tasty. The service by Shambu and his team is superb. Full bar inside, and also the 6 Degrees bar upstairs. Well worth a visit

Visited this Restaurant while staying in Hilton Ras al Khaimah. We decided to try Churrasco so we had only chicken croquets to share as starter and got ready for all that grilled meat. It was hard to choose, which one was the favourite, probably Rump steak and grilled pork ribs. We skipped lamb, but I am sure even that was... More
