Vida Ventura Restaurarte is a place to experience more than just food. Yes, the food is magnificent, the service is outstanding...but the ambiance, the historic location, the walkthroughs along the property and the interactive dialogues with the owners makes this a "must-do" experience for anyone who loves culinary arts and history as well. The location is captivating, beautiful. Chef Vivoni's talent is extraordinary. The service of their team is flawless. Vivoni Sir, on the other hand, will provide the historyc element of the experience, and at the end of the day you'll fell like in your own house and will not want to go...was it the sangria? Amazing experience. Will definitely return. Put it on top of your list.

Chef Ventura Vivoni is a brilliant young talent, an artisan of flavors with a puertorrican gourmet twist.
Sangría de China con jengibre, paté de morcilla, sorbete de jobos, pastel deconstruído de cerdo confitado en masa de yuca, risoteo de plátano con setas de Aibonito.. This puertorrican ¨jíbaro¨ menu has to be written in spanish, the taste... is for the world to enjoy.

Vida Ventura Restaurant is a unique place in the mountains of Puerto Rico, a Historical Hacienda surrounded by nature and the sweet smell of jobos, cider and lemon trees. Take the trip. Let the Vivoni Family be your host for the day. Enjoy life music while you sip homemade limoncello, or perhaps 100% homegrown coffee ...and be part of the magic.

If you want to enjoy a wonderful culinary experience, then a trip to Adjuntas at Hacienda Luz de Luna with Chef Ventura Vivoni is the place to visit. This is a beautiful, historic, and magical place to spend with family and friends. You will hear about this restaurant...but you must really come to experience it. One of the best times I had with great friends and meet a group of new ones...the Vivoni family... Thank you Edric, Luchy, and Chef Ventura Vivoni!!!

People who have stayed at our small, lakefront Guest House and who have visited Vida Ventura, for a delicious dinner have said that it has been a wonderful combination: good food and a good bed in a lakefront Guest House makes it an extraordinary experience. Take your time and enjoy an easy afternoon in an old Hacienda house with a glass of good wine or a great cup of coffee.. Chef Vivoni has this special hand to make delicious things with a particular Caribbean flair, mixing sweet fruits with ginger, lime, coconut and/or spices, that gives you a different taste of what you (perhaps) thought you knew. Fish with orange sauce, Jobo sherbert, mamey desert? That's possible here. My preferred soup is his pumpkin and coconut soup dashed with grated ginger....yummie!
