Great food, healthy choices but very expensive for what it is and where it's at. Place can be jump'n when they have live music. It's definitely a gringo/tourist supported business.

The food at Maracatu is locally harvested and carefully prepared. The staff are all wonderful people that work super hard and show true dedication and love. Music here is always world class and DJ Bushman and Uncle Richie make special appearances if you are lucky enough to catch them performing! Big love and appreciation to EVERYONE that makes this place... More

We went during lunch so maybe it is better during dinner. But the service was so so. The guy barely acknowledged us. I was excited that they were a healthy spot but the food was kind of bland. It could be that I tried tofu for the first time and thought that it tasted like dog food. But the restaurant... More

I've been here about four times since in CR. The veggie burger is to die for I've gotten it three of the times. Ask for the hot sauce, it brings that shiz to the next level! So good. Comes with a salad (organic) and chips and retried beans. It's around 9-10$ but very worth it. The water is good with... More

This little gem reminded me of my own place back home in Jakarta - open air, funky, serving mostly organic and delicious food with options for vegetarians and vegans, great music, and good vibes!

We dropped in for supper at 6pm but tables were booked for an event from 7 so our food was a bit rushed and not as good as experienced by other reviewers. We probably should have not tried it that night and gone back another day.

the restaurant is dark youcan see what you were eating, we were given shrimp padi thai without the shrimp as they had run out but we were not told until the dish was put on the table minus the seafood and the service was slow with some people finishing their mains before others had even had theirs. Overall it was... More

I was in Dominical for nine nights and ate at Maracatu three times. The food is fresh and well-prepared. I ate a lot of "tipico" Costa Rican food while I was in Dominical, so at Marucato I tended to order asian dishes...the coconut shrimp was delicious, abundant shrimp in a perfectly balanced sauce served with a fresh, crisp delicious salad...

My husband and I had dinner at Maracatu in early February. It was fresh, delicious and fulling without being heavy. I highly recommend this place, for vegetarians, vegans, fish eaters!!

Healthy and great vibe. Love this place and the food! Plenty of choices, great staff and service. Craft beer on tap - bonus! I had the Falafel Sandwich, the bread was gluten free and one of the coldest beers I've ever had! Seriously - eat here if in the area.
