The view is without a doubt breathtaking from the open air restaurant, ocean on both sides. We arrived as 2 couples and 2 children; the main waiter had to force a smile in order to be somewhat friendly. Then the first waiter who took the orders was not the person at brought the orders out and this led to confusion... More

The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food was very good, but a little on the pricey side. The location, on a spit of land, offers lovely ocean views on both sides and refreshing breezes.

Decided to have dinner La Percela while staying in Domincal. Agree with others that the location is ideal, however, the food was very disappointing. After ordering wine, the waiter informed us that they were out of jumbo shrimp which was what my wife intended to order. She instead ordred shrimp with rice and I ordered mixed seafood with rice. When... More

Although we went by night, there must be a great view with see on both sides. Staff wasn't really friendly, but the food was delicious. Options are limited but for sure fresh and well prepared.

amazing. It is an old building , on a mountain that enters the sea about 300 meters. So I 'll be sitting overlooking the sea on your left and sea view on your right. While we were eating came a group of monkeys which put them some fruit to enjoy alongside humans . The food is excellent . Definitely a... More

What an astounding location--a landbridge between two hills that form a peninsula. Ocean on both sides, lovely breeze. Fresh seafood, well prepared, with inexpensive wine well matched. Ceviche was great, tuna was prepared perfectly (rare). A unique place good for any meal.

Don't blink or you'll miss the road to the restaurant. After a short one way road up a steep hill you arrive at the restaurant. There are beautiful views of the ocean from both sides. Service initially was a bit slow but was fine after we ordered. The food was good. More of an American menu. The white faced monkeys... More

Hi 2 years ago I wrote: Do not wait to long to visit this restaurant. Maybe it will be shut down. There is a new law. According to this law: the restaurant is to close to the waterfront. Buildings must be 200 meter away from the ocean. But they are still open. I came back and I did not change... More

We discovered La Parcela accidentally after returning from offshore fishing trip departing from the same small road as La Parcela. The atmosphere and views towards Dominicalito beach on the North and a rocky beach on the south was fantastic. The very lush vegetation and trees made the building and atmosphere very peaceful. Arrived for late afternoon lunch during a slow... More
