Set on a small, reclusive peninsula. Great food. Normal prices for an exquisite location. They also have four lovely cabins... clean and the best stay we had in costa rica. Iguanas, monkeys, wow

Capuchin monkeys joined us from the trees - love that! Food was excellent, and the ambience and views from both sides of the point were well worth the visit. Be sure to take the trail down to the overlook before you sit down for dinner (if it's still light out)

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. It is right between the ocean and the bay - view is absolutely unbelievable!!!! Food is delicious - mostly seafood - fresh and tasty. The staff including Andre could not be nicer. We liked it so much we went back a few days later. Best food around.

Everytime were headed down to the Southern coast of Costa Rica we stop here. You are on a cliff with the ocean on both sides. The view is great. Last time we were there we saw the white faced monkeys trying to steal some food. Resturant is good and views are great. Would definitely recommend it

We've been going to La Parcela for the last 10 years. It's location is second to none; perched on a narrow piece of land looking to both the north and the south along the Domincal coastline. Just south of Dominicalito, a narrow driveway leads through the jungle towards the shoreline. Follow that winding driveway to the top of a point... More

We had an excellent dinner here and this was one of the few places that served red wine at the right temp! Most restaurants serve it too warm, especially in warm climates. The location is beautiful as well, we missed sunset so it was a little dark, but I would highly recommend if you can time it with sunset.

We really enjoyed both the food and the views at La Parcela. My wife had asked about stopping here on a previous evening of our Costa Rica trip, and I had shrugged it off in favor of another place. I am glad we made it a point to get here later in our vacation. From our table we could watch... More

Made a visit to La Parcela on a recommendation, glad we did! The drive there from Dominical is short, views approaching the Resturant are great, location sits on a point, southern surf breaking on rocks, northern more protected, several boats anchored off shore. Great location with views! Monkeys show up in the mornings. Food was good, our group had tuna... More

thank you for taking time to review our retaurant. If you wanted to have a nice meal with the best view you came to the right place, the boats you saw belong to local fisherman that provide us with fresh fish. I'm so glad you got to to see monkeys they come daily but they don't have a schedule so... More

the ocean views are amazing. the staff is very friendly. the food is very good, tasty. Do not wait to long to visit this restaurant. Maybe it will be shut down. There is a new law. According to this law, the restaurant is to close to the waterfront. Buildings must be 200 meter away from the ocean.
