“Best meal in Palmas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

We decided to give this restaurant a try after hearing it had changed ownership and we were not disappointed. The staff are really helpful and friendly, our appetizer of tostones and chicken was really delicious , bursting with flavor and the churrasco over rice and beans just melted in your mouth. We will definitely be eating here often - it's my new favorite place in Palmas!

“awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Awesome food and drink of the day. The new owners are attentive and accommodating. The service was fast and the food was delicious!!!!!! The owner set up a special table outside so that we were comfortable and everyone working made sure we had all we needed. I will definitely return when I am in Palmas Del Mar next time.

“Awesome food and service !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We loved our meal and our children did as well. This was our best meal in Puerto Rico. This is our fourth trip here. Our future foodies rated their meal at 10/10! They ordered rice and beans the other had a steak.

“Worth the wait!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

It was our first night in Humacao and while the family was walking around trying to figure out where to eat. Ivan the new owner of Pura Vida saw us and started a conversation with us.Next thing you know he set up tables for us and we ordered. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxing and most of all Ivan's friendly attitude was refreshing. We did wait a little longer than normal but it gave us time to talk and take pictures. Once the food came it was worth the wait even my picky 9 year old ate all his food. I recommend anyone in the area to stop on by and tell Ivan the big family from Chicago sent you. We even went back on our last day to say good bye...he is now family!! Good Luck on your restaurant Good fortune!!! Borges/Rolon Family
