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.

Stopped in on a Friday evening to enjoy dinner and entertainment. Not super hungry so my husband and I shared a pizza. Had 2 drinks each and 2 desserts, and paid C$75. Although food was nothing to complain about, it was just not worth it. I would suggest ordering a coke and eat elsewhere if you are going for the... More

On our recent trip to Dominical (we go a lot!) we heard that Roca Verde was under new ownership so took the whole family plus some friends for lunch. We were the only ones there for a while and ordered the pizza, which was excellent! There were two waiters to help us and I wish I remembered names, because one... More

I recently are here with my family and some friends. I heard that Michael, the owner, had revamped the menu. It did not disappoint. We ordered two pizzas (Margherita and White), the signature fish dish (the first item on the menu), and two pasta dishes. The pizza was excellent. It was Italian style thin crust (which was lightly flaky on... More
