“Enjoy the Flo gives mad props to San Clemente Bar and Grill”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

You know you are somewhere special just by the suspended VW microbus with Elvis and THE DUKE (father of surfing.... swabs) as passengers for their signage. Upon first glance inside the place it is very unassuming, but check out their memorabilia. The place is a museum for classic surfing photos and an entire wall pays homage to The DUKE KAHANAMOKU. An enclave serves as a shrine to the King (Elvis Presley)...never a blue Christmas here! If you want to, you can ride the magic bus for less than one hundred english pounds, or just couch surf in it...you supply your own driver. The ceiling is a graveyard for surfboards that didn't make it out of the fierce waves of Dominical intact. Bring in your broken board, sign it, receive a free taco and beer. Salud! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful and friendly staff. The menu is very diverse with something to meet the needs of every diner, and the food...muy bueno! If you don't stop in here while in Dominical you just haven't arrived. Enjoy the Flo gives it three and a half shakes of the shaka. ITS RAW!

“Yep, worth a visit.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Good food and good night out. Good fun all round.
We came here in the day for lunch and in the evening for drinks, music and atmosphere... well worth a visit and a photo with a VW Camper with Elvis Presley hanging out the window....

“Good Mexican food in an unexpected place...”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

The San Clemente Bar & Grill is a great place to go if you're an expat (or a tourist) craving that great California-Mexican food fix. Good Mexican food is hard to find in Costa Rica, even more so in the more rural areas like Dominical. Mike has a great place here, with great fish tacos and chimichangas. And his fiery hot sauce? Ay, picoso!!! A daily "starving surfer" special is well priced and the daily offerings are good. If you're in Dominical, make sure to drop by the San Clemente, You can't miss it, Elvis is hanging out a VW bus right out front!
