“great relaxed lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Great, fresh food, ice cold beer, and very friendly service. When one travels to a small village like Dominical, they must enjoy the local flavors, and San Clemente is it!

“worst food in costa rica ... ever.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

This was a huge disappointment as long time owner has apparently just decided to serve slop. I would not recomend this place and I am surprised that the locals/tourists would even support it. The service was nothing to speak of. We asked a fellow hanging out speaking with his girlfriend that was the only waitress working there, if the place was open as it was noon on Sunday and he said I don't know ... and then when his girlfriend came out ... the made fun of us and the question ... because they assumed we did not speak spanish. Faux Paux. I should have left then but decided based on the reputation to go for it ... wow! worst meal ever in Costa Rica.

“Enjoy the Flo gives mad props to San Clemente Bar and Grill”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.”
4 of 5 bubbles 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....
