“Absolutely Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

By far the best thing we did while in Puerto Rico, the food was magical and we were made to feel very at home (despite our poor Spanish) and had the best possible day at Hacienda Luz de Luna

“Best gastronomic experience in Puerto Rico. Hands down.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

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.

“Mesmerized by flavors, cordiality and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

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.

“A culinary joy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

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!!!
