Food was good. It was hard to find. Long dark road. View probably great during the day. Not many dining options in the area so it was a welcomed experience. Would go back. Not inexpensive.

The breakfast was very poor (only bread with butter and marmelade, cornflakes, small fruit salad and an egg) and the restaurant owner lacked both customer and organizational skills. We discovered only at the final bill that the dinner wasn't a menu but 4 separates dishes (which is not the same for the price) . The main dish was good but... More

The dinner options were too similar each night & became boring over a 4 day stay. The breakfast did not include fruit & only the most basic of egg dishes, unless you paid extra which seemed very unreasonable.

Had a great meal at Villa Romana last night. Great food, had a Moroccan inspired appetizer, stir fry for dinner. Amazing the great food they can get out of such a small chicken. A little tough to get to but worth it. I wish it had been light so we could see the dramatic view.

The place was airconditioned, clean and our waitres was very friendly. She gave us some good suggestions on what to order from the lunch menu. Liked it so much, we went back that same evening.

Lots of employees for a small place. Can not say anything negative about this place. Go for the food and scenery. Definitely a place... More

Villa Romana is my go-to restaurant in Pedasí. Off the beat and track and nestled on the ocean, the fifteen-minute drive out of the city center is more than worth it. Fresh fruit, homemade omelettes and piping hot coffee for breakfast while you watch the waves roll in and head upstairs for a quick nap in a hammock; watching Romulo... More

this place is off the beaten track (15 mn drive from pedasi) on the ocean. the food is good, the view beautiful and the people very nice. the road to get there is a rather bumpy durt road so SUVs are a clear plus.

Delicious fresh food served on a terrace overlooking the ocean. Reasonably priced at about $20.00 per person, this was the perfect complement to our vacation. Certainly the best restaurant in the region!
