Yes they were serving 17 of us but we had reservations two days prior, they could have brought more staff. The drinks took forever to come out. The place is quaint but great views. Food was reasonable in quality and price.

You are surrounded by beautiful views and the sounds of the waves on the rocks below. There are monkeys and toucans in the trees. The service is top notch, and the food is amazing. They also make great cocktails and desserts. You'll want to make it last!

I have eaten here 3 times. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful. However, the grounds and view are what make this place spectacular. Giant, ancient old mango trees dot the landscape. Gorgeous views of the ocean and surf on both sides of the restaurant. For added fun, white-faced monkeys often travel through for lunch. Wow!

Hard to find, but worth the effort. This open air restaurant has beautiful ocean views and a casual vibe that transported you to another world. We ate lunch and enjoyed ceviche, seafood soup (great) and seared tuna (also very good) with vegetables. Service was average--water was never refilled, had to get up to find someone to order dessert--but the place... More

Chose the tuna as it was a special occasion. It was very, very over seasoned and dominated by far too much ginger. The tuna was cooked beautifully but we could not taste it as the other flavours dominated. How to ruin a delicate fish!!!! The restaurant is in a lovely setting.

Our group ordered Tuna Steak mostly. Excellent quality! Highly recommended and very fresh fish & seafood. Best option in Domincal area plus the very best views of the Pacific from both sides of the restaurant .

It is the second times I go there and each time I had the tuna and it is awesome everytime. The tuna steak is large and thick, it's moist and very tasty. I highly recommend this dish. Another member of the group took the ceasar salads with shrimps and it was good but not perfect. Took much sauce not enought... More

We went here for lunch and the ceviche was very good. We also had yummy lemonade. The menu had a lot to choose from. I would definitely go here again when in Costa Rica!
