“Solid meal in Dominical”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Food: fresh, home-made, not amazing but definitely tasty, well-seasoned, and did I mention fresh? Had an order of fish tacos (the tortillas were a little soggy, but everything on the plate could be eaten with a fork, and was fresh and delicious), side of fried (sweet) plantains (which was delicious with the sour cream that came with the fish tacos), and an order of fish casado, which was a plate with the freshly grilled fish, rice, beans, and salad with a tangy dressing. Nothing fancy, but all was delicious and again, fresh.

Atmosphere: Right on the beach, lots of locals/hippie surfer types, several tourists; our waitress was a local with pretty good English, and a blonde female American ex-pat was working the bar; owners must be Baltimore Ravens fans; reggae music on the speakers and surfing videos on the TV above the bar; fun and lively, especially for a Monday night.

Price: About $35 for two pina coladas, two Imperials, and dinner, so, not bad at all; takes credit cards.

Overall: If you are in the area, definitely worth a visit! Safe bet, and English speaking staff to make it easy for tourists.

“Good food, relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Went there numerous times. Lived the Mahi sandwich, fully loaded nachos, smoothies....
There was one not so friendly waitress during one of our visits but service was otherwise fine. Good place to hit after a day at the beach.

“Good time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Located right off the main beach, great place to escape the heat for a bottle of Imperial. Food was really good and a great atmosphere. We were treated to a fire dancer show, really cool!

“Friendly, Fun, Beach Bar & Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Full fish dinner with fried plaintains and salad was very tasty. My wife had the chicken breast sandwich which was huge and very good. Get a table next to the road if you like to people watch!

“Fun, funky and surprisingly good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We've stopped by a couple times. Beach bar atmosphere with fast friendly service and more than decent food. Always surprised by how good it is!
