    good stuff

    I love the atmoaphere of this place. Its pretty small but awesome. Recently had a party of 13 for a celebration and they were very accomodating! The guava margaritas are yummy and the food was awesome. They close at 10 :00 but they didnt rush us out.

    we go there as many times as we can considering our lunch time is only 40 minutes. the wait is always long, so we try order the moment the waistress comes over (we know the menu from heart)...but they do not like to give separate receipts. why they cannot write up a separate reciept is beyond me. they will only take one order per table. so if other co-worker come along and sit at our table, we now have to do the math, and figure out who pays what. every other restaurant in this neighborhood (whether they write out one check or several) at least doesn't have an attitude, for us wanting to pay separately. the main employee almost threw the register at us, insisting, we do not separate orders....well gues what, WE WON'T GO THERE ANYMORE.

    Good food, not service

    The food was ok, but the service was not. The restaurant is smaller, and they kicked us out and didn't bring our dessert because another large group with a reservation was waiting to be seated at our table.

    Great flavor

    Girlfriend and went to pura vida for dinner and found it to be very good. I had the steak Plato and she had a pork burrito. The meats had great flavor and all the ingredients blended together well. It is cozy inside but does have an air conditioner. The only negative was that the guac had a little too much lime for our taste. Definitely going again.

    Awesome BYOB

    This place is great. The food is really good, good prices and its BYOB. They also dont rush you out which is always good for a byob. The chips and guac are also good and the quesadillas are awesome. Only thing is that it gets hot in there in the summer. Great place, I love it and go back often

    Mixed (Feed)Bag

    Sweet little place with very pleasant staff, but the food is only ok. Cuban sandwich was not great -- roast pork was a thick dry slab with little flavor, and American cheese on a Cuban sandwich is kinda gross to me. American cheese on a pupusa is also gross, and they served us that, too. Pickled cabbage salad served with the pupusa had some zip, and the tacos were all pretty good (veg was just onions and peppers, but was tasty bc of the good hot sauce and guac -- beef "ilichita" taco was really tasty, best thing we ate there).
