We were on an Audubon walk and the leader highly recommended this restaurant. We were early enough for the early bird specials to our surprise - very good value. Hubby had the crab cake and I had the meat loaf - the food was delicious and the service was very good. We are adding this restaurant to our "must return" list. Give this restaurant a try, you will not be disappointed.

I searched trip advisor for places to eat in Cape May and found that Bella Vida and another place had a high number of reviews with many of them rating excellent. I decided on this one because of the Spanish name figuring they'd be some Latin flavor in the menu.

Interesting menu: Costa Rican influence. As a matter of fact, we found out the owner visits Costa Rica yearly. We ordered a side of plantains with black bean sauce on it... so good! I had a Tico Burrito and loved it. Five of us ate lunch for $88 including the tip. We all enjoyed what we ordered and were very satisfied. FYI: It's BYOB.

Service: excellent service, attentive, friendly, knowledgeable

Restaurant: casual atmosphere, seemed like many locals (we did go off season)

I'd definitely return!
