I'm not a vegetarian - and went here specifically for the lion fish. It was great! I had the seared lion fish with coconut basmati rice and the salad... husband had the curry lion fish. He enjoyed it as well.

Since we were here during low season, we had the place to ourselves - and it was our anniversary dinner.

I've tried doing the vegetarian thing before - and try to be as much of one as possible - so I had no problem trying this place... my husband wasn't too keen on it - but he really enjoyed it as well.

Mickey, the owner, provided very personal attention - and told us his story about how and why he started. He wanted to do his part in changing the world - and that's awesome! I thank him for sharing his story...which almost made me cry, BTW! More people should be like him! Plus - he gave us a complimentary vegan chocolate mousse - which was AMAZING! Don't miss that - OR - the coconut ceviche..... DELISH!!!

Don't miss this spot! Slightly pricey - but worth it for sure!

fabulous low keyed place below dive hotel on the North Side. Lion fish sandwich and Lion fish curry are the best! We only had lunch here, but is open for dinner.

So happy to have a new option for diving at DiveTech's Lighthouse Point! The emphasis at Vivo is sustainability, which we greatly appreciate. The menu is almost entirely vegan, except for the lionfish dishes (and as divers we love seeing lionfish on the menu!) If that's not your thing, give it a try anyway - you'd be surprised at how delicious it all is. We are a far cry from vegan but we enjoyed every dish we tried. There's also a nice happy hour, and they manage to make even drinking a beer sustainable - bottles are returned to the local brewery for reuse! The owner and staff are very welcoming and friendly. Overall, it's a great spot to enjoy something different!

I found Vivo looking up new restaurants before our trip. They care about the environment and go out of their way to recycle, minimize waste and remain sustainable.

Micky and Frank are knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about the restaurant.

The food is delicious. Since it's vegan, I needed to order a bit more to be full, but every bite was great. Their lion fish entrees are outstanding.

Go there for dinner and watch the sunset. The view is extraordinary and the sun sets right in front of you. You can watch from your table or at the end of the long pier that extends from the restaurant. We went back a second time because the first experience was so great.

This restaurant is fairly new and well worth a visit.

Small, unpretentious restaurant close to turtle farm. Unwind on the deck with some tasty smoothies, fresh juices, or a local beer. Enjoy vegan specialties like the coconut ceviche, baked falafel, or curry with coconut rice...amazing fresh and rich flavors.
The only meat only the menu is the lionfish which was delicious in a sandwich.

Service is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend it to a friend and go back.
