Beautiful view and strong drinks make up for very slow service

Right on the Playa Dominical with a terrific view of the Pacific. Open air bar that attracts all kinds of patrons. The mixed drinks were tasty and strong but you have to wait a long time (by American standards) for them, even if you stand at the bar and order. I didn't eat there but others in my... read more

Love this local bar across the street from the beach. Became a daily routine to sit at the bar, recount the day over a few Imperials (local beer). We'd take our last one across the street and watch the sunset. Nothing like rules in America. Favorite part of our days spent in CR!

The only restaurant on our trip that we hit twice. This place is on the beach in Dominical. If you haven't been there - Dominical is a dirt road, real hipster - little surfer town with a mix of carefree 20, 30, 40, 50 and even 60 something's. It's a place for the young - or young at heart.

I just can not say enough about Tortilla Flats. The best fried red snapper around. The bartenders are the best on all of the southern pacific coast. The food is some of the best in the area.

A must stop if in Dominical. The fish tacos are delicious. There is always plenty of good people watching and the restaurant has ocean views. It's a great place for a drink too. Bathrooms could be a lot better though. Don't let the casualness scare you off. It's great food.

This is a ordinary restaurant but has a special atmosphere that you will like it. The food is very good and the prices are ok. Also the ocean view and breeze are very nice

Great place to hang on the beach anytime of day - breakfast, lunch, dinner and after. Good food, good drinks and a great vibe - everyone was super friendly.
