Just returned from an amazing dinner at Pura Vida. The food was so well prepared. My husband had scallops with strips of chorizo on squid ink risotto. I had a veal chop flambed in rum, with a sweet potato puree. We ended with caffe gourmand. Every dessert was delicious. It was our favorite meal on the island. Service is friendly,... More

Very nice restaurant with excellent food. The place gets busy at night so reservations by phone or in person are highly recommended. Food quality, taste and presentation are outstanding.

All though it was a Friday night and we did not have reservations they found us a table and service was GREAT. Drinks were generous and priced right. food was beautifully presented and delicious. We are going again tonight because it was that good and we are sad to be leaving Martinique so this should help ease the pain.

We liked this place first because of ambiance and very nice decor. We ordered some starters which were good and then for main dish lobster and fish. Also we ordered a bottle of white wine. Lobster was ok came almost cold. The fish was made in plastic bag and came hot but it was tasteless and dry. Our bill was... More

Opens at 7pm food was just so so, the cod cakes were very greasy, uneatable. The Lamb seemed to be reheated and not hot enough to enjoy.

Nice decoration Cocktails and food of average quality. The place was crowded that night and the manager a bit on nerves took so much time to invite us to sit while waiting they prepare new tables, that we where about to leave when she noticed our presence. Dinner was just acceptable for the price !

We had the fish tartare which was delicious! Relaxed atmosphere and nice staff. We had the table next to the kitchen and under a huge fan. Every 10 second it was blowing my GFs hair all over the place like an 80s pop video.

Thank Spinule
