On our honeymoon my wife and I were struggling to find good food. Went to Pura Vida in the Palmas and we were blown away. Dante was the best. He took care of us and everything came fast. The Jambalaya was the best. Definitely set a new standard for me. We'll be eating there again before we leave the island.... More

Manny did an awesome job taking care of us and making sure we had a great dining experience. He explained several dishes for us and answered all our questions. We were even offered complimentary shots for the table. Food was very interesting and authentic but also had some good options for kids. Margaritas were excellent.

The food was more than satisfying and Dante was an excellent waiter! He recommended every dish that we tried and we were not disappointed. Best food I've had thus far on the island.

We had dinner here the other night and it was wonderful. Ivan, the owner, introduced himself, and was very accommodating. Manny, our server, was excellent. We enjoyed the food very much!

I stopped in twice with family and friends for a great dinner. A nice out door setting in the middle of a paradise. The food was so good. My wife is kind of a picky eater and I was afraid she wasn't going to enjoy but she ordered a plantain kind of breaded chicken breast with a mango and guava... More

There are some places that get over looked because of your schedule when vacationing. Do not let this be one. The staff is amazing. Dante made sure that nothing was going to ruin our meal. He kept everything flowing and our glass full. Actually the entire staff did. The food was a definite shock. We ate near by and the... More
