Recently I ordered the Nachos Special con carne at this restaurant. Absolutely excellent. Every day we've been in Dominical we have ordered the batidos. Our favorites are mora (blackberry) and mango. Laid-back atmosphere allows you to enjoy the beach scene, the cool breezes and company topped off with fine meals.

Quite good restaurant for the price. Without being extraordinary food, its probably the best quality/price in domicical. Real good guanàbana and strawberry smoothies.

I don't know how fish can be rubbery and old tasting when we are sitting right in front of the ocean, but it was. This restaurant is par for the course, tourist trap food all the way. Nothing was good except for the bottled beer.

Had lunch here on Xmas day and it was a good, reasonably priced meal. I had the Chicken Casado and my wife had seafood rice and we were both happy with the food. Service was good also.

We rolled in here for lunch immediately upon our arrival to Dominical. The "typical food" is served up hot, fresh and fast, though they offer a wide variety of delicious dishes in addition The young guy working the floor has excellent English and patient with weak Spanish, including mine. The portions are ok, the cold beer flows, the sounds of... More

We stayed her for one night and then left again. Its a very cheap place to stay and you get what you pay for. Small, damp room with shared, messy bathrooms and the shared kitchen is dark and uninviting. Best thing is the location with the surf spot across the road. The staff was not very inviting and didn't really... More

The restaurant has great beach view, fresh air and open space. The food is good, goo and acceptable price. Also is good just for drink a beer.

Ask if they have fresh tuna. If they do it is great. Friendly staff. Take mosquito spray! OK mixed drinks.

Never go wrong with a lunch at Cocos on the beach in Dominical. Staff is always super friendly, and food is consistent and very tasty! Watch the surf while having lunch is the best.

We ate here our first night in Dominical. Was highly recommended by Max, our hotel owner. We had the seared tuna with mashed potatoes and a coconut/spicy sauce. Was very good and in front of the beach.
