Live music on Friday night!

This place is hopping on Friday nights "the Howlers" all locals complete with a very seasoned and very talented electric violin player. They play a good variety of music with plenty of room to dance! It's on the beach they have a full service bar the menu is varied you can even get pizza!

Only accepts cash, this was a problem. Possibly a bit overpriced and requires a min 3 nights say which is annoying as I require more flexibility. Breakfast was great and the dogs and wonderful.

The staff here is very welcoming and friendly. Juan was especially great, as my Spanish is non-existent and he spoke English to me without making me feel like I was ignorant. The owner was amazingly accommodating to myself and my husband. He had many recommendations and tips for places to go around Dominical. I will never forget the kindness we... More

I love going on Friday nights to 'the Rock'...you get to see all your friends, drink some fantastic drinks and eat the "Roca Verde" pizza, which is my Fav. also nice place to visit in the afternoon or at sunset. The beach that is steps away is drop dead gorgeous and very sandy and picturesque. Guaranteed great times and good... More

The nachos and margarita pizza are fantastic! The service isn't the best, but it's really fun to go on Friday when there is an awesome live band!

We didn't go to all the upscale restaurants in the area, but of those we did see, this one is head and shoulders above the rest. Just outside of town, the very best beach view, easy drive in access, great food and super service. We went early, around 5:00, so the restaurant was almost empty. The waiter was very friendly...

When you walk into Roca Verde you might be a little wary since it is not a great decor or atmosphere. It has a kind of "local bar" atmosphere. On the other hand the food is great. The first night there we ordered pizza to go and loved it. We had a veggie and a pepperoni. The thin crust is... More
