“Dinner with a view.”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

The location of this restaurant is unique and offers ocean views from your seat and from both sides of the property. The ceiling fans didn't seem to help move the still moist air, which made for a warm dining experience. The food was very good and servers were attentive. If nothing other than the views, this restaurant is a must visit destination. However, since you are there for the views, you might as well eat there too. You will not be disappointed.

“A nice restaurant with a spectacular setting”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We had a nice dinner here but the real selling point was the location on the end of the peninsular just south of Dominical. You can walk a few metres to the point to watch the sunset - very nice. The staff were friendly and the food good but not special.

“Come for the Coconut Shrimp & the view, stay for the MONKEYS”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

La Parcela is located high atop a beautiful peninsula that provides gorgeous ocean views on either side. We had both breakfast and lunch there hoping to see the Capuchin monkeys that live in the trees surrounding the restaurant. When they make their appearance, the waiters will put out some pieces of banana to entice them to come onto the (roped off) balcony so diners can see them up close. While the food was good, the monkeys are definitely the highlight! We did not see any at breakfast but when we came back another day for lunch they made a brief but entertaining appearance. The coconut shrimp I had was very good but my husband's fish was just okay. Still, it was a great experience and a highlight of our trip!

“Lunch, Not Dinner”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

If you enjoy having a nice, leisurely lunch while in a tropical paradise this is the place for you. The water views and sea breezes are spectacular on two sides of the covered, outdoor dining room. There is also a nice walk to the point below the restaurant for some quality photo ops. The food is solid, but pricey for the area. You pay a premium for the atmosphere. The service is friendly but can be slow when it gets busy.

There is nothing wrong with La Parcela for dinner EXCEPT that you really can't see the views which is the prime reason, for me anyway, to come in the first place.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Really good location and good food. We visited for lunch and really enjoyed our meal but others left as the staff could not keep up due to a large party that arrived just after we got served.
