We have visited the Vida Hermosa Bar several times. They have live music on the weekends so it can get very busy. The sushi and ultimate nachos were excellent. The service is average. Great place to see the sunset.

The restaurant has a great location and scenery, filled with a modern and outdoor look, that will make you enjoy de stay. We visit the restaurant late at night with a group of 8 and had trouble getting something to eat because they where out of ingredients, so we didn't get to try the highly recommended "Pollo Consentido". We ordered... More

Get a seat at the bar and watch the sunset over the ocean. Hard to beat. Seafood was fresh as I found for my short stay in CR. If it's not too far out of your way, give them a chance. Come hungry and ready for some cocktails. You won't want to leave.

Vida Hermosa is hands down the best place to eat in Hermosa (not to be confused with Vista Hermosa down the street). The atmosphere is lovely, directly overlooking Playa Hermosa - a great spot to be for sunset. The interior is beautifully designed with hardwood flooring and a great all wood bar that can only be described as tiki-chic. The... More

When on think of a fish place on the water, I think this should come to mind. It is situated on the ocean, a few hundred feet away with spectacular views of the sand, surf,waves and surfers. The place is super clean and very comfortable with lovely booths and an area facing the water. All seats offer a view. It... More

The view of the sunset from this place is truly wonderful. The food and drink were good and the people friendly. They were short on some of the menu items but over all a good selection.
