“Nice Change of Pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

ConFusione came recommended to us by friends who are Dominical locals, and it did not disappoint. The dining room is open-air seating - just like everywhere else in town - but with a little more "upscale" feeling to it. Nice tile floor and plenty of ceiling fans, tables set with candles, and a nice bar to the side.

I had the "Pasta con Camarones y Porcine" which is a pasta and shrimp dish that was served with a Parmesan cream sauce, and it was delicious. The bread beforehand was also so good we almost filled up before our meal.

It is tucked away on a side street a short distance away (500+/- yards) from the heart of Dominical, so you have to be very intentional when you go looking for it. Drive until you see "The Refuge" and then take a left onto what looks like a narrow alley before the building.

You may even see a few stray cats looking for table scraps, but they are friendly and not too pushy. Overall an enjoyable experience with good food and a good atmosphere.

“Excellent choice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We first stayed at the DiuWak hotel. Dishonest staff ripped us off the first night we were there. First they promised that breakfast was included in rate. Next morning after breakfast they tell us that the breakfast was not included. Felt completely ripped off. Will never stay there again. Then we moved to Hotel
Domilocos with great staff and honest staff. Room is identical quality to DiuWak for less than half of the price. Will definitely recommend this hotel.

“Ya gotta eat somewhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We stayed near Hotel Domilocos so it was a logical place to try for our first breakfast. A bit pricey at $6 per person for the average buffet breakfast. Tried the tapas for dinner and were happy with flavors of all that we tried, prices were fair and the service was excellent. We'd eat dinner there again, breakfast ...not unless we're staying there.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

One of our best meals was at ConFusione. They have great pastas and tapas and wine. Nice atmosphere and fantastic service. A little more upscale than some of the other restaurants in Dominical.
