The perfect spot for a simple dinner after a long day at the beach or exploring. The Casado plates would be your best bet for a traditional Costa Rican. My wife got the pork chop and my friend got the fried chicken and they both loved it. The pescado taco was amazing!

We had a ridiculously good meal - smile fare, very affordable, but super fresh. They make the best smoothies, hands down, we had all ever had. The banana pancakes were great too! Eggs were made very well. Great local atmosphere, on the back of a dingy street next to what looks like a junkyard. Totally a place to go.

Just go find it (it's a tiny bit away from all the other restaurants in Dominical, and you'll see. Cheap. Authentic. Magic.

Always had our drinks and smoothies pretty fast. Coffee was excellent. The Special Breakfast was good tico food, rice, beans, eggs, plantains, meat and sour cream. It... More

I am not a big breakfast guy but Cafe Ensuenos is worth finding if you need to stuff your face in the morning. I would not recommend dining here in a rush because the service is "beach casual" meaning reallllly slow. The tropical pancakes or the mono loco smoothie will make you quickly forget about the service though. Don't forget... More

We visited Cafe Ensuenos three times during our stay at Dominical. We did enjoy the smoothies--especially the ones with milk which were rich and had interesting spices. However, I think the hamburgers and fries were really the stand-out for my family. We also liked the way the typical Costa Rican meal was presented and served. This restaurant is around the... More

Very simple place that serve good breakfast. Juices are fresh and coffees are not so bad. Didn't try other than breakfast tho but I bed it is as good. They serve burgers, casados and other.
