I'll guarantee this to you because you deserve the calming. Staff were friendly, Food is delicious, and a place can only be as memorable as its view of the sunset. Ocean Vida is one of my favorite place to relax. Will comeback here for sure with my friends.

Had some great food here and was by far my favorite place in town to go. Great location in the middle of the beach with bean bags and wicker sofas on the beach. Nice

Sorry for the horrible photo but the food was great!

Place is amazing, especially during the sunset, you can enjoy all colors of Malapascua, also food is nice, I tried many kind of dishes and the most I liked was Thai food and cordon bleu.. The staff is also nice, just ask them something you need and they provide like immediately. I will recommended to all my friends!

I ate in the restaurant several times during my stay. The food was delicious and good value and the cocktails (particularly the Mango daiquiri) was lush on the beach front.
