Went here for supper and to watch the sunset. Can't get a better spot for the sunset. The menu had lots of good sounding options. I ended up with chicken wings just cause they were 2 for 1 and my kids wanted them. My wife had a cashew chicken bowl and enjoyed it.

I was actually excited based on reviews yet I was very disappointed. The location and view were great but the food based on cost and service were mediocre. The 4 of us spent around $130 on 4 specials and each was not terribly happy with food. The fish had little flavor and felt lacked some substance. Dishes did look great!... More

Two locals recommended this lovely local spot. Classic burger was great, Cajun Mahi mahi was thumbs up, teriyaki chicken bowl is what I should have ordered (my husband's choice). I ordered the tuna burger - it was well prepared, but a little dry for my tastes. While none of us ordered smoothies, they looked really good and must be popular... More

Stopped here for lunch, what a treat. Right on the beach so great to relax in the shade. Super friendly staff serving fresh fruit shakes and super freshly prepared food. Recommend the raw tuna and rice!

We went to Jacó for a relax weekend but it did not compare with Hermosa. This beach is peaceful and clean. We had lunch in Vida Hermosa and it was an unique experience. The food is very special and you feel like at home. Ask for JuanMa, the owner, he will help you with the menu.

Terrible service. We've been there twice, first time we had to wait 40 minutes in line to pay our check. Second time the place was packed for breakfast yet there was only 1 waitress/cashier, left because we didn't want to face another 40 min line. Beautiful place great view good menu.

Took half an hour and came to the table pink. My vegetarian wife ordered veggie pesto pasta with sun dried... More
