Description
La Vida is Spanish and it means Life. Everybody has their own unique personal view of what life means to them. For us we believe that life is for loving, sharing, learning, travelling, eating, drinking, cooking, hosting, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, dancing, wondering, healing passion and even more loving. We choose to live life this way. La Vida was created because of our passion for all things Spanish and the great continent of Latin America. Both regions have some common themes; unique food, wines, lifestyle, music and most importantly the people and their love and passion for Life. All our dishes are seasonal inspired by what’s grown around us locally. Our Head Chef Guillermo Sanchez and team create a daily menu based on availability of produce, please let us know any special requests or needs. Our aim is to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of food; to convey the taste sensations, flavors of spices, culture, fragrances and styles of our menu, and the warm Latino welcome you will receive at La Vida. We welcome you to take a culinary journey through Latin American and Spain Viva La Vida ! Live the life !
