I've been to Dominical several times and always returned to El Coco. The food is great here, basic Costa Rican, similar to what you'd get anywhere else, but you always get a big portion, and the prices are more than reasonable. They're the best in town.

The breakfast here is particularly good. Also the arroz con mariscos is quite tasty.

One negative thing we would have to say about El Coco is that probably 50% of the time we were in this restaurant, we saw girls working as prostitues entertaining tourists. It was very obvious, and might make some people uncomfortable. We just turned the other way and enjoyed our food.

The food was basic but the seafood was top notch. The bartender was beyond helpful with directions and bus times, he even ran out to the street to make sure we got on the right bus!

This is the place my boyfriend & I frequented the most on our recent trip to Dominical. Food is great and has one of the larger menus we saw over there. Breakfast was top notch and only about 5 USD for the both of us, including drinks, so it was also a great deal for the price. We both enjoyed each meal that we ate here, and the nachos we shared as an appetizer. The atmosphere, like most restaurants in the town, is very laid-back and casual, and at night it's one of the livelier places in Dominical. Salon El Coco had some of the best food we ate during our whole trip.

I ordered there always typical Costa Rican casado with either fish or beef, it was always very tasty. Also Bavaria beer was a nice surprise, everywhere else they have only local Imperial. Location directly on the beach is the best one can imagine,
