We found this restaurant by chance on our first night in Dominical. It is right on the beach and is a great casual spot for a meal. The service was exceptionally friendly...and in English, which helped us out tremendously.

Had a great margarita here. Also had an order of nachos, they were different than we are used to, but still tasty. There was live music playing, and an awesome view of the sunset. There is a little flea market that goes down the beach walk just outside the patio which was fun to explore. Love the openness of this... More

Everyone in town knows of this place so this review is nothing new. But it's still fun to come here for the first time. Had the mahi-mahi ceviche which was very good. Even better is the passionfruit basil margarita which is a must.

We liked the food at Tortilla Flats. Went back twice. We had a great waitress. She really helped us by answering our questions and giving us good info about the area. The area is nice with laid back surfers and locals enjoying the beach.

Enjoy your delicious meal while viewing the Pacific! We actually ate dinner with our kids (ages 4, 3, & 1 yo) while watching the Super Bowl. As a parent, I greatly appreciate who puts on the menu a traditional PBJ! Thank You! The kids loved eating here too! I would strongly recommend!

Every time we are near Dominical we stop at this place. The restaurant is just in front of the beach, has a great vibe, and food is really good. During our last visit, our waiter Moises Hodgson, gave us a great recommendation, was very kind, and took good care of us. Great recommendation if you want to have a nice... More

This place is the go-to place for tourists and ex-pats. You rarely see a local sitting at the bar unless they are serving! If you're looking for 'local' don't come here. If you want some more familiarity / western food, then this is the place to go to. Fries were slightly overcooked but the sandwiches are generous and decent. Prices... More

It was a fun and friendly bar, on the Monday and had live music that night...a female duo, singer/guitar and a fiddle. Well attended by locals and tourists and lots of spirit. It is located right across from the beach on the main drag. Noticed it was very quiet the next night without live music. Heard the food was good... More

Another great meal after 9 years visiting! Humongous sandwiches (1/2 option is plenty!), great fries, icy cold beer (full bar available) and great, personable staff! An "always" stop in Dominical, fabulous view of the playa, vendor booths lining beach access road.

We were told by locals that Tortilla Flats was their least favorite place to eat in Domincal. Options not being too plentiful we tried Tortilla Flats for lunch based on looks and curb appeal. We probably should have trusted the locals advice. Tortilla Flats had the most American feel of any restaurant we tried during our visit to Manuel Antonio... More
