We had dinner here on our first night in Dominical. The location is amazing, with ocean views. The restaurant has a cool ambiance with murals on the walls and cool lighting. The service was great, we were the only patrons. I had pizza-delicious. Thin and crispy. My husband had the Chicken cordon blue, also delicious. We were kept company by... More

We went here at the recommendation of our hotel as we wanted some pizza. Very pleasantly surprised that the pizza was outstanding (thin crispy crust variety). Was kind of a weird vibe though with the area doubling as the hotel lobby. Really dark and the waiter repeatedly just came and stared at everyone.

We took most of our meals here while we stayed there. Breakfast is included, and the portions very generous. Food was very good, the owner and chef Michael really knows his stuff.

Didn't stay here but we did pop in for a few beers. Nice open area and the beers were reasonably priced and cold! Worth a stop and a look around the beach.

My wife and I stopped here for a bite on our stay in the area. The place has a great atmosphere and a view of a little bridge over a stream and the Pacific. We did not actually stay here so I cannot speak to the amenities. The service was friendly and the pizza was very good. They have live... More

Nice atmosphere but the service was very poor. We waited over an hour for the food to be delivered and it was not nearly as good as other local places.

Went on the advice of Richard and Diane at Coconut Grove. Pizza was incredible. John waited on us and was gracious and welcoming. Best of all the G String Cowboys were playing. I would fly back to Costa Rica to see them again!

We visited for dinner and to enjoy the live music from the "G String Cowboys" band. A low key, relaxed atmosphere with good food. Service was spotty so allow plenty of time to enjoy the total experience. They DO NOT accept credit cards so bring local Costa Rica Colones for payment. We only had US Dollars to pay and Roca...

This quickly became one of my favorites when it comes to places to eat and stay. The owner Michael is as charming as the environment. Loved that before breakfast or after dinner, I could take a stroll on the beach to see some amazing views. The food is absolutely high quality and would highly recommend anyone to come and enjoy...
