Good dinners to be had here! Great local dishes. Dante and his staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome and insure your dining expectations were met. So nice to sit outside in the courtyard under the stars and dine.

Food was very good, my friend asked for her dinner and told the waiter she was waiting for somebody, somehow he thought I was going to ask for the same and brought two same plates, I ate it. And was good but he never asked if I wanted to drink something and never came back. I had to ask another... More

Pura Vida has an amazing food and great service. The whole staff was friendly and especially the owner Ivan and waiter Dante were accommodating and went above and beyond to make this an excellent experience for us. Fun for family or friends! Would definitely recommend!

Hole in the wall place in the Palmanova square with excellent Chicken wings and good service. Just what you need in a no fuss atmosphere.

Okay, just spent a week on a Royal Caribbean cruise to the various St islands and had dinner in the formal dining room each evening. My wife, a very strong food critic, said the nightly meals on ship were "uninspiring." Yikes, is she ever hard to please. So, we spent two days post cruise in Old San Juan and head... More

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
