The breakfast is wonderful and cooked to your liking. I feel it has the best pizza in the area. The view is wonderful

Roca Verde is one of the consistently good old stand-byes on the Costa Bellena. The menu is a mix of Tico and other foods. Their arroz con pollo is one of the best renditions of that dish around. Big fish sandwiches, made only with fresh fish, are my frequent choices, as on this visit. It was fresh cargo (Pacific red... More

My husband and I were recently married in this lovely corner of the world, and the owner of Roca Verde, Mike, and his team made an absolutely incredible meal for us! We had the most succulent crab for the first course, and the salads that followed were immense! The seared ahi tuna steaks the chef prepared for our entrees melted... More

The place is nice, very good location, the beach is just amazing and in front of the restaurant. The food is regular, nothing very original but it was okay.

We didn't dress up, but maybe we should have (or could have). The restaurant-- you will see the sign to turn off the main road a couple of km south of Dominical--is in a lovely spot above the sound of waves. The building is open-air and feels very elegant with the lighting and high ceilings and white tablecloths and candles.... More

We had trouble finding this one as it's not exactly IN Dominical, it's just south of there along the highway. It's very close to the beach and the atmosphere of the restaurant is nice - big bar, stage for live music, tables with candlelight, plenty of space. We ordered pizza, which was very thin crust and pretty good. Our server... More

We LOVE this place and always come here more than once when visiting Dominical. First of all, I love the open air look of the restaurant and the location right off the highway but still feeling remote. The food here is SO GOOD, I wish I could eat here once a week. Their pizzas are delicious, and I ordered a... More

We dropped in after visiting a nearby waterfall for a beer and ended up grabbing a spot of lunch. The staff and dogs were very friendly. The beer was cold and the food was excellent. The restaurant overlooks an interesting beach which you can get to by walking over an Indiana Jones type bridge. Nice place we will drop in... More

I only had the chance to stay one night. The owner, Michael, is super helpful to everyone. He knows the area and is very open. The hotel is a bit pricey, but he actually helped other couples find cheaper accommodations. The rooms are nicely decorated and appointed with coffee makers. The beds are comfortable. The pool is large and open,... More

Only accepts cash, this was a problem. Possibly a bit overpriced and requires a min 3 nights say which is annoying as I require more flexibility. Breakfast was great and the dogs and wonderful.
