Wanted to write a review letting people know there are vegan options here. First off, the maracuya drink en agua is fantastic. For the meal, we order the nachos without cheese and sour cream. They make their own chips.. loaded with beans, grilled veggies, pico, avocado, lettuce & add jalapeños to the side. Their spaghetti with tomato basil sauce was... More

The views do not get better than this..ocean directly to the North and south..not a bad seat in the place. Also, the daily march of the monkeys is amazing....wild monkeys visit the restaurant daily. Now the food......first off its a little pricey.....but is solid and focused primarily around seafood. Both their ceviche and seafood soup are excellant. They also have... More

I came as a chaperone for nine 8th graders. Our guides had arranged a cooking class for them. We drove up a winding, narrow road that ended with a beautiful view of the coast and a lovely open air restaurant. After passing out paper chefs hats, he chef got the kids to work chopping vegetables for a hash that we... More

This restaurant is perched atop a cliff that juts out into the ocean, and is surrounded on three sides by water. The restaurant itself is open air, and almost all tables have a view out onto the ocean, with sailboats and beautiful tropical fauna. It's absolutely beautiful. The food is standard continental fare, burgers, pastas, salads. The food quality was... More

It is a bit of a climb but worth the trip up the hill...in a car! A little more upscale than the Dominical area, Went in the afternoon and had some not too cold beers and finger food. Nice view of the whales tail.

First meal was great. It was close to 4 starts the first night. The tuna tartar was done well. The rest of the food was good. We enjoyed the homemade icecreams as well. We went back the next day and it was like a light switch was flipped. The food was terrible, the tuna borderline gone bad and the tartar... More

We had lunch at La Parcela after our whale watching/snorkeling tour. Food was good. Service was excellent. View was incredible! It is a higher end restaurant(by central american standards) set back from the main roads and perched on top of a cliff overlooking the rugged Pacific Coast. The smoothies were awesome!
