We were here in Dominical for a month in 2014 and we visited this restaurant several times during our stay. It was an excellent location for Mexican food and we really enjoyed the flavours and the costs. Returned this year and it is now Patron's. We ate at Patron's last night - see our review... read more

We went there in January and noticed they were closed. Looks like a name change and brand new look, very modern. I liked the old restaurant and Mikes hot sauce but the place did need a maker over and better service. We visit twice a year and can't wait till July to try the new place/food!

Closed now so couldn't eat there. now called Patron"s. very disappointed in the new modern look. i prefer Costa Rican-like places in Costa Rica, not US type places.

Was so looking forward to eating here but they have closed and are in the middle of a remodel. The VW has been repainted and I have heard they are turning it into a family spot w/caycare?

Get Real. The main reason you want to go to San Clemente Bar and Grill is the Surfer Ambiance - period end of story!!! The food you can get other places in this world... but this place is Unique. It's been in the sand road town of Dominical for decades. The use to offer any surfer who totaled there board... More

Just recently ate here. Don't order quesadilla's with chicken. They were absolutely horrible. Not even sure it was chicken. Tasted more like grizzle and bones.

the waitress actually started refusing to serve items off the menu because she was busy. my son's burger ( I know, that IS a complicated dish to cook ) literally came almost an hour after the rest of our food, and when my wife asked for another drink to kill the time - she was refused. this was the absolute...

Tacos, fajitas and drinks were great! Kids enjoyed hanging out in the "back of the van". We went for a late lunch after surf lessons and were the only ones there. We missed Taco Tuesday, but still enjoyed them on Wednesday!

The food was good, we got the fish tacos and fish burrito and both delicious. The sour cream was a bit strange but other than that yummy.

Taco Tuesday at San Clemente was awesome! The Tacos were great and cheap. The Hot sauce is amazing. The margaritas were super strong and delicious. It was the best dinner I had in dominical. I came back for the Super Nachos the next day for lunch. yumm
