Once you get over the cost of food. We had dinner here twice. Food is great and you get what you pay for. Service falls off towards the end of your meal. You may have to walk your bill up to pay. Have a mojito though.

Portions are on the big side and good value for money. Good music, great atmosphere,... More

Stopped in for breakfast a few mornings with friends. We each got acai bowls with fresh fruit that was delicious. Great view of the beach as well.

Such a pretty view, right on the beach. Really clean and open air. Delicious food, generous portions and kind waiters and waitresses. If you're lucky, you'll meet a few cute pups there! There were two tightropes in front of the restaurant which were fun to try (not so fun after a couple beers!) If you like good food, good drinks,... More

We dined here April 2017. Absolutely beautiful location and the atmosphere is wonderfuly laid back and fun. Our kids played on the beach, did the balancing ropes and enjoyed the owners dog that roams around. Our drinks were yummy and entrees good. Our mistake was ordering the mixed ceviche as a appetizer.

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.

Thank S M
