Very special place....

While you can dine at less expensive restaurants, you wont find one more special than Cuna Del Angel and their waiter, Kerley. We are in Costa Rica for our 35th Anniversary . The food and service rivaled any 5 star restaurant we have dined at in the U.S. Highly recommend!!!

We were on vacation for a week in Dominical and made reservations at the restaurant at Cuna Del Angel. The service at this restaurant is top notch. Our server, Kerley, was very detailed oriented and made sure that we were being taken care of. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice. We would certainly...

We really enjoyed the staff at Cuna Del Angel--very friendly. The food was good, much better fare than you'll get many other places in the area (unless you go down to Ojochal). Very thoughtful with great gluten-free options for all meals, even pasta and bread which were a nice treat (we were staying at the hotel and enjoyed great bread... More

We were welcomed by friendly staff, beautiful scenery, and classy interior. Our food was excellent, perfectly prepared. When I asked for wine we were presented with the their top three choices and after narrowing it down was given a taste before finally deciding to purchase the bottle. Our server was very professional and engaging. The tables were beautifully set. The... More

We dined here April 2012. The ambiance the atmosphere the food were all amazing. We really enjoyed everything about this place and would go back in a heartbeat!!! I am vegetarian and it can be difficult when traveling, but they accommodated me to perfection.

Most restaurants in and near Dominical are very casual with limited menus and ok service. Cuna Del Angel is the exception. The menu is plentiful and the variety wonderful. And the staff so attentive, they actually served the young child before everyone else. The staff works on providing the best service and they make the effort. We loved the food... More

The daily specials are definitely worth trying. Best steak I have had in a long time. The flaming table side desserts are spectacular! Good buffet breakfast. Beautiful open air restaurant with a view of jungle and ocean.

After one of the best massages EVER, we enjoyed lunch on the elegant veranda overlooking the Pacific. The ravioli dish was excellent and the chicken with Gouda cheese was soooo good. The deserts....heavenly!

Such a delightful lunch. We weren't expecting a smooth breeze, exotic scents of the forest, and ocean. The whole resort looks lovely but there was something special aboutmain dining area in the in the style of a large Baruca Indian ceremonial dwelling. It had a little steam punk, Jules Verne, 1920's India look and feel about it. The food was... More

We stopped by this place for an unplanned lunch having arrived to early to check in at our rented house. The hotel staff let us keep our luggage nearby while we had a wonderful relaxed lunch in their indoor/outdoor dining area. Not much of a view from there but the food and service were impeccable.
