Live music with dinner!

We stopped in on several occasions mainly to hear the band playing. The first time we just had drinks and the next visit we had a burger...both were okay. Service tends to be slow when busy....but everyone is on Tico Time! The music was great and we did get in a dance or two!

We treat Roca Verde as an extension of our kitchen, except that the food is generally better than what we can cook at very reasonable prices. Specifically, the Mahi special is an excellent piece of fish, quite thick, and cooked to perfection. The slightly spicy and sweet sauce which accompanies it is delicious. We also sampled the Chicken Parmesan, which... More

We were introduced to this restaurant by the owner of Coconut Grove Cabins who plays in the band that was performing the night we were there. I am not a huge fan of bands but these talented people are not just some basement variety they are professional studio musicians from the US who are now living the Pura Vida life.... More

Stopped by a couple of times. One time it was closed the owner started telling us we should have stayed in a hotel...we had rented a house...the place looked dumpy, beside a main road overlooking the parking lot. Not sure what his point was, but despite his lack of understanding of tourism we returned for take-out pizza which was pretty... More

After a day of kayaking, which left us muddy and tired (but we had a great time!) we decided a pizza and a cold beer was just the thing. The restaurant is open air, on the beach and casual enough that even though we were muddy we didn't look to out of place! The cold beer hit the spot, but... More

We had tried to get to this restaurant once before and we walked in and no one was around and the place looked closed. We decided to try again last evening for dinner and I am so glad we did. The menu was smaller but all four of us had amazing food. We had a flavours we have tasted. The... More

We had a quick lunch there and enjoyed our meal of seafood pasta in white sauce. We were the only customers in the place but there were plenty of dogs. We loved 'em and our son enjoyed petting them, but if having several dogs sitting under your table isn't your thing, this might not be the place for you. I'd... More

Open air restaurant in a cool area by the beach. I had seared Ahi Tuna and it was SO GOOD and fresh. Cool murals/paintings on the wall. Very cool place with a tropical, Costa Rican feel.

My husband and I found Roca Verde last Friday night when we were totally exhausted. We had a wonderful, much needed, meal and heard some very pleasant live music. It was very enjoyable and I recommend it as a solid place to go.

We loved the live music, went back for pizza 3 times during our trip, and they have the best margaritas in the area! Highly recommend!
