“Pura Vida is Awesome!!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Pura Vida is great!!!!

What a surprise! We strolled around Palmanova Plaza looking for options and if it weren't for the owner (Ivan) of restaurant we might've gone some other place. He greeted us and showed us their menu, which attracted us! Food was great but you have to try the Plátanos Salteados!! HAVE TO!

The restaurant is inexpensive an you can sit out in the plaza and have a great time!

We will definitely go back!!!

“Dynamic new owner”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

My wife and I had an very enjoyable meal at this restaurant. We were walking in the area checking out restaurants when Ivan (the new owner) greeted us. He was very gracious. We decided to eat there after checking out other places. We could not have been happier. The food and the service were excellent. The prices were very reasonable and the portions very large. (I had to get a doggy-bag.) Ivan was very personable. It was a pleasure to talk with him. Pura Vida is a real find!

“casual & tasty”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Ivan made us feel at home. Local classics (mofongo and currasco) were excellent as were pasta marina and blackened salmon. Medallia was iced-cold (yum)!
