Danta was a great waiter. He got us with a menu while we were looking for food. They offer a great variety of dishes. Everything was excellent. Danta also set up a table outside for us so we could eat outside. He went above and beyond for us!

My wife and I are finishing a seven day vacation at the Park Royal Puerto Rico at Club Cala. Three of our dinners have been at Pura Vida, a few hundred steps from our villa. The food is very good, reasonably priced, and promptly served. As one would expect, it is popular and a brief wait for a table is... More

Our server, Dante, was out of this world. He started the dinner by recommending an appetizer. He guaranteed we would love it, or he would bring us another dish at no charge. Needless to say, he knew what he was doing. The appetizer, and the entire meal, was wonderful. If you are in the area, check this place out. Ask... More

Based on previous reviews, 8 of us decided to try Pura Vida. The outdoor seating, (in the middle of an open air shopping center) was at first a bit off putting. But the food was very good. Seafood Sampler was excellent, plantain soup delicious and other entrees very good to excellent but the real pleasure was our wonderfully charming attentive... More

Simply, delicious! I had the daily special, chicken with guava sauce (with one side), and I could not be more pleased! The chicken was perfectly cooked and moist. The sauce had everyone at the table guessing how they can replicate this at home. The service, Manny and Ivan, were both attentive and nice. The drinks are yummy and we came... More

The most ORIGINAL and TRADITIONAL food that tops all the rest of Puerto Rico. It's a must try and only you can and will approve this review... but the environment and specially the staff and drinks will prove to be true. Open mind will earn and prove the truth. ... Love this place.

Thank Jasper R
