Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The appetizers recommended by our server were fantastic. Skirt steak is the bomb! Really enjoyed sitting out in the square of the market place. Service was great and everything our party of 5 had was delicious.

This resturant is located in the plaza. Dining is available outdoors. Service was excellent and food good. Dishes were elegantly presented but portions small. The owner was present and was assuring excellent service and talking with customers.

We found this place on yelp and were hesitant after having some bad experiences at other places while on vacation. We called and made a reservation for 14 people. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by our waiters Dante, Ivan, Luis, and Zachary. Our table was ready and setup waiting for us. I am going to start with the service. If I could give beyond 5 stars I wouldn't think twice. The owner Ivan came and introduced himself to us. The servers were extremely attentive and made sure that anything we asked for was made available. Bravo to you guys it's great to see that there are still people who believe in exceptional service . As for the food, it is out of this world! From the appetizers to the meals to the dessert even the house drinks are absolutely top quality! If you are able to eat here it is definitely worth it! It's inexpensive delicious food! Thank you soo much to Ivan and ALL THE GUYS for making our grandfather's birthday one he will Never forget! We will definitely be back!!!!

Whatever you do, go here not next door to Blue Hawai'i. The experiences are diametrical to each other. We had excellent food and superlative service here. The snapper breaded with plantain was great. They overhead my friend saying the side salad was small and the brought a second one for her. We met Ivan the owner and he was friendly and eager to please.

We visited Pura Vida with another couple. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We started with the plantain skirt steak appetizer, which was plentiful for four. The special was a local jambalaya dish, which we all had to taste. The red snapper filet and the steak dishes were also excellent. We topped it off with a shared cheese flan. Our service provided by Dante, Zach, et al, was impeccable. Dante brought us shots of an anise/Puerto Rican rum to complete a great evening.

The perfect weather and the al fresco setting in the courtyard by the fountain further enhanced a great dining experience.

Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and service.
