Great food, awsome music!!

This is one of my favorite places in Dominical. Located a bit south of town on the highway, it's right on a little rocky cove, on the beach. A large open restaurant and bar, they have really great music on Friday nights, with Ben Jammin and the Howlers. You have to experience this! They offer... read more

Food is awesome, but the view is even better. It's right next to a beach where you can swim and surf and come right in for a cold one, pizza or Arroz con Pollo o camarones. All of these items are above expectations and the service is A++. The older gentleman knows what he is doing and he will recommend... More

My family and I had been here for lunch and we enjoyed the great view and the tasty pizza. We were a little dubious about the service then and found the prices a little steep (cash only) and were surprised that they tacked on the service charge, but the view was really pretty great. We went back for dinner and... More

Roca Verde hotel, bar and restaurant is one of the first hotels in the area. Ideal for surfers, couples, friends. The hotel is a night destination one day during the week for dancing, drinks and party, ask to locals about and will tell you the same. I didn´t see the rooms but if you check their website the rooms looks... More

My new favorite place for sunset drinks and dinner. Right on a breathtaking beach (2 minutes south from the main town of Dominical) you can order your drinks, walk out on to the beach with your cocktails while you wait for your food to be done. Dinner starts early and it is not crowded. Plus the food is very delicious.... More

Go for the entertainment on Friday nights -- it's worth it. You have to arrive early (e.g. by 6:30 at the latest) if you want comfortable seating. We would definitely go back again for the band and recommend it for this. However, don't expect a gourmet meal -- service is slow, food is acceptable but for the same price you... More

Enjoyable place, waiter was a bit slow to warm up to us, but by the time we left we were all having a good time. We ordered tuna and a fish special. Both were seasoned well but overcooked. Would give it another try next trip tho.

This was recommended to us, but I think it was because it caters to gringoes and is pricey. My husband's whole fish (the reason we came) was overcooked, but my cordon bleu was very tasty.The beach was lovely. Go there and bring your own food.
