We visited for dinner and to enjoy the live music from the "G String Cowboys" band. A low key, relaxed atmosphere with good food. Service was spotty so allow plenty of time to enjoy the total experience. They DO NOT accept credit cards so bring local Costa Rica Colones for payment. We only had US Dollars to pay and Roca...

This quickly became one of my favorites when it comes to places to eat and stay. The owner Michael is as charming as the environment. Loved that before breakfast or after dinner, I could take a stroll on the beach to see some amazing views. The food is absolutely high quality and would highly recommend anyone to come and enjoy...

Friday nights a band name Banjammin and the Howlers played. Excellent classic rock music with personal instrument twist, Pizza was thin crust and delicious as well as the calamari and key lime pie. Pay attention to menu prices and make sure your bill matches ;)

We did not stay at Roca Verde, but had dinner there a couple of times. Food was very good and very reasonably priced. The beach here is black, but nice for a beach walk before or after dining.

Roca Verde is good for romantic or quiet dining during the week and get your groove on, dance to live music on the Fri./Sat. nites. Nothing special... reliable food quality and quantity with average service and prices.

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.
