Lovely view. It rained a little but it made the view even more interesting. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Don't miss the Capuchin Monkees !

This restaurant is tucked away but close to the ocean. Waiters are nice, food was good. The place gives you the feeling that you are with one foot in the ocean.

Best clams I've ever eaten. They're an appetizer but I wish I would have just gotten this as my meal. Amazing views--make sure to walk down the little trail on the lake side of the restaurant. There's a tree that is just as magical as being thrown into the Jungle Book. The only reason I didn't give the restaurant 5... More

Unbeatable beachside location (use mosquito repellent though) with very good food. A bit pricey but you're paying for that location. Make sure you get there in the daylight to appreciate it.

This place had hit a slump for a few years, but it's back and good as ever. The tuna tartar is world class. The staff is wonderful. The fries and the fresh fish are amazing.

If your looking for a romantic place for dinner, this is it! La Parcela sits out on a point looking both north and south out into the beautiful Pacific Ocean. You can sit on the north side and look out over gorgeous Dominicalito Beach bay or sit on the south side and look over a beautiful rocky bay, actually you... More

Best dinning view of the ocean on two sides. Cool breezes and great Pina Coladas. Try the whole fried red snapper. It's always great. Can't make a trip to this part of C.R. without eating at least once at La Parcela. Try lunch or make sure to dine before dark. Once it gets dark, you loose the atmosphere.

Having been a regular visitor for several years to La Parcela I decided it was time for a review. The trigger was a perfect piece of Mahi Mahi. The location is unique, set on a tropical peninsular that juts into the ocean. The service always friendly and efficient with that undeniable Tico charm. But on this occasion the food, although...

Some others told it was overpriced but I thought it was great - didn't feel like I was paying for the view, but maybe that's just a function of where we live the rest of the time. Specials were great and recommend the tartare.
