“New Mexican Restaurant.”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Priced higher than usual Mexican fare. Salsa is excellent. Menu is typical, nothing original.. that's a minus. Would love to see a little more chef creativity.

“Superb flavors”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

I understand that La Vida is fairly new in Belfast. We stopped by for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The menu, although basic, was very thorough and had a generous sampling of the fare. We settled on a jalepeno burger and the blackened Talapia sandwich, both were excellent. The homemade salsa was fresh and very flavorful, although I thought it might have used a bit more cilantro (IMHO); The pinto beans were cooked and seasoned perfectly. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall quite a nice experience. It's on our list to return for dinner.
