I ate at this restaurant while visiting my children in Alexandria, VA. This is a Puerto Rican, Caribbean restaurant. The ambient was very nice and the food and drink were reasonable. All the food that we ordered were delicious and truly ethnic. I definitely eat...More

I went to Aguaviva for brunch with a group of friends. The staff was very responsive and quickly adapted menu items to people's taste. My friend asked for strawberry juice in her mimosa and they did without questioning. However, the food was not impressive at...More

We were longing for some good cerviche, and Aguaviva delivered! The best cerviche I've had in years. We also had the arroz con pollo and ropa vieja. Excellent all!

I guess we had great expectations when we went into this "Latin fusion" restaurant, as it seemed to offer Ecuadorian and Peruvian dishes (which, being Ecuadorian and Peruvian, we crave). However, the "Ecuadorian ceviche" did not approximate anything eaten in Ecuador, and was mostly bland,...More

Some of the best latin food I have ever had. Had the Grouper with a Bacon/shrimp sauce & roasted cuban potatoes. SO GOOD! my husband had the tripoleta sandwich. He said it was also very good-- a little rich-- but good!
