An old-fashioned hotel seafood restaurant, with pleasant but sleepy service and ambiance, yet great food
Time Out Says
On first arrival, Mi Vida seems the sort of eatery only attended by hotel guests of Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa. However, once you get past the sleepy atmosphere, friendly yet slightly slow service and tired decor (we’d advise eating outside on the pleasant terrace instead), you get to take a bite of the food. And the food is well worth the trip. Choose from the detailed Mediterranean-inspired seafood menu (it even includes recipes) or the seafood market, which the wait staff will happily guide you through, and which includes interesting local options like halwayoo, alongside fish shipped in from Europe. Dishes arrive with your choice of sides, such as vegetable rice and tasty grilled vegetables. The smaller selection of desserts is also satisfactory, and includes a couple of less stereotypical options, such as nougat. Expect to leave comfortably full, and pleasantly surprised. They just need to update the decor and we'd expect more residents to seek the place out.
