Welcome to Vida & Comida, your local, upscale BYOB in Ambler!


We specialize in authentic Spanish cuisine with a bit of flare. Our most famous dish is the Fresh Seafood Paella that is made to order in our kitchen. Other popular items on the menu include Osso Bucco, Pulpo a la Gallega, and Seared Corvina served with Jumbo Lump Crab and Truffle Oil. The restaurant is BYOB, set in a modern and intimate atmosphere.

Meet the Chef

Chef Manuel J.

The chef/owner, Manuel, was born and raised in Spain, and has lived and worked in the United States on and off for 25 years. Chef Manuel was the executive chef of San Marco restaurant in Spring House, PA for 12 years. He and his wife Cindy have previously owned two other restaurants internationally located in Spain and Puerto Rico. For them owning a true authentic Spanish restaurant in the U.S. has been a life long dream. Vida & Comida is truly a passion project for them both, and they are excited to share their cuisine with the Ambler area

Chef Jose Malave

We are pleased and excited to announce our new executive chef, Chef Jose Malave.  Cindy and Manuel are both pleased to name Chef Malave as executive chef of Vida & Comida and are looking forward to this exciting time working with him.

Chef Manuel and Chef Malave integrate their expertise to create a menu that is modern, yet accented with classical style.  Chef Malave comes to us from Philadelphia, working most recently with the Jose Garces group, and is excited to bring his considerable knowledge and expertise to Ambler.  We look forward to working with Chef Malave and are confident that he will bring Vida & Comida to even greater heights now, and in this coming, new decade.
