Salva Vida, affiliated with a seaside hotel, is typical of many beachside establishments in that the decoration is not especially original. We are pleasantly greeted and the service is friendly with a real effort to explain the menu. The cocktails are good and original (mojito with anise) while the wine by the glass is very average, however there seems to be a lovely collection of spirits for a before or after-dinner drink. The tuna sashimi with figs is elegantly presented, although we would have liked a bit more figs! The Mac Crab Cheese is original, and recalls the American roots of the Chef: it is a lot to eat, rich in bread crumbs, with tasty large chunks of blue crab. The Banana Bread perdu is interesting and well prepared. It finishes off a simple, fairly classic meal, apart from the Mac Cheese with crab. The products are excellent quality, and we’re sure that the Chef will know how to surprise us with new, original creations.
