Mundo Vida is more the sum of the parts – the beautiful sea view, the pleasure of gathering around a table to share authentic meals, warm and friendly service, feasting, celebrating the craft and tradition of cooking, honesty, and spectacular ingredients.

Our goal is to pair the culinary inspirations gathered from our world travels with the best ingredients; the freshest seafood, hand-picked seasonal produce and the finest quality meats.


Mundo Vida is a family run restaurant that enjoys a “family” kind of relationship with our guests. The restaurant has a very casual atmosphere, allowing guests to feel relaxed and “at home” in their surroundings. We have a very approachable style of cuisine that has taken influences from all over the world.

With its prime location on Umdloti Beach, Mundo Vida offers patrons seafood and bistro fare in a casual, yet professional environment. Escape into our culinary world of superior produce, exceptional cuisine, eclectic wines and acute attention to service detail. Our contemporary menu honours both our produce and great chefs who've gone before, by fusing traditional cooking methods with modern influences and tastes.


Mundo Vida has earned a proud reputation as a top-end seaside restaurant. We source the highest quality fresh fish and seafood. We prefer linefish that is caught by local fisherman as we believe they use more sustainable methods of fishing than commercially caught fish. All our ingredients are sourced as locally as possible and our team of chefs prepare everything fresh to order to ensure maximum quality and flavour. This is our “ethos”, we still want there to be beautiful seafood for our children in generations to come.
