great location

We were staying in the hills above the restaurant and decided one night to go for dinner here. We were the only ones in the place and at first were wondering if the food was bad. To our surprise the food was tasty and fresh. The man that was working that night (not the owner) seemed bothered that... read more

Setting across from the beach is great. The dinner however was just average. Enjoyed the live music. Credit cards are not accepted. Cash only.

Super nice place with average food. Be sure to talk a walk on the beach before or after you dine. I hear they have pretty good party's with live music on Friday nights.

I've been going to Dominical for around 10 years and the bar at Roca Verde is a place I like to go each time. It's a beautiful, peaceful, lazy place to hang out and drink beer and have some food. Live music sometimes as well. Check it out.

Everything was very fresh and cooked to perfection. And the portion was very big. I highly recommend the Ahi tuna which is seared to your preference exactly, served with a soy sauce reduction, with washi on the side. Buttery mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. Also their house salad is amazing! It is creamy without containing dairy. This homemade dressing is... More

We came during the off season and the place was almost empty (2 more tables occupied) and the feeling was somehow ghostly... The personnel was Ok but not very friendly like saying: don't bother us too much... However, the food was excellent and I had the best "white" pizza in my life!

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
