The servers were very attentive and made sure we were taken care of. However, my husband's fish was completely unseasoned. My food had seasoning but not much.

I have had the pleasure of enjoying the new chef's menu somewhere else. Let me tell you, this new chef menu is awesome. Pura Vida will make the difference now in Palma Nova! And BTW ask for Dante, he is one awesome waiter!

We got 2 recommendations to eat here. When we got there we were skeptical because it's really not much from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was unbelievably delicious! The owner introduced himself and suggested chef specialties. An all around great experience. Definitely going back.

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... More

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... More
