Loved the food and the service. Absolutely delicious, home cooked comfort food. We had the veg lasagna, chicken pie, and meat pie. Yum!

We had a very satisfying vegetarian dinner at Pura Vida. The food was simply delicious and so abundant we were not able to finish our dishes. The service was excellent and they were very kind with their recommendations regarding good wine to accompany our dishes.

Had a great night here. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and the food was great. Lamb stew was delicious as was the beef stew in a pumpkin. Finished with pears in Malbec which were wonderful. Thanks.

I had their lamb stew and it was very good. The food portions are rather large so keep that in mind. The waitress was delightful and spoke English really well. I recommend them if you are looking for Argentinian food but had enough of Parillas

Amazing food, great ambiance and a very friendly staff. The menu go beyond the traditional Argentiniani meat dishes, with different savors and a touch of homemade food. I've had the "carbonada de calabaza" and my friend the "pastel de pollo".

This is a pleasant relaxed restaurant. It doesn’t open until 7.30 but when we arrived at 7.45 on a Saturday night it was half full and filled up very quickly. The portions are enormous and all apparently individually cooked. It has a very pleasant ambiance...More
