Made a visit to La Parcela on a recommendation, glad we did! The drive there from Dominical is short, views approaching the Resturant are great, location sits on a point, southern surf breaking on rocks, northern more protected, several boats anchored off shore. Great location with views! Monkeys show up in the mornings. Food was good, our group had tuna tar-tar, ceviche for appetizers, shrimp and pasta, whole fried snapper, seafood soup, coconut shrimp! Deserts . . . Flan and coffee con Leche! On our second visit we were caught in a rain storm and were provide umbrella service to the car! Great service!

thank you for taking time to review our retaurant.

If you wanted to have a nice meal with the best view you came to the right place, the boats you saw belong to local fisherman that provide us with fresh fish.
I'm so glad you got to to see monkeys they come daily but they don't have a schedule so so they come at any time.
Please come again we will be happy to serve you

the ocean views are amazing. the staff is very friendly. the food is very good, tasty. Do not wait to long to visit this restaurant. Maybe it will be shut down. There is a new law. According to this law, the restaurant is to close to the waterfront. Buildings must be 200 meter away from the ocean.

The food at La Parcela is average. The jumbo shrimp is jumbo indeed, but other dishes such as the seafood stew and desserts are average at best. The view is lovely if you make it before sunset, and the service is timely.

The location of this restaurant is hard to beat. The views all around are great with rain forest and ocean. The service was great and the wine selection was better than I would have expected. Those that had fish, said it was wonderful. I had a salad that was just OK.

I went to La Parcela on a whim while in the area. I was happy with the food, and the drinks are top-notch (try the Guaro sour) and of course the view is spectacular. But the absolute best part is the monkeys who visit every day. While paying the bill, I looked up to see a capuchin in the corner checking himself out in the mirror. Next thing I knew, one of the employees went inside the kitchen to grab a handful of bananas. They have a system of bamboo 'walkways' rigged up on one side of the restaurant (away from tables and safer for them) so that the monkeys can come and enjoy a banana or two. I was deeply impressed with how the staff treated these monkeys with such love. I was also impressed with how this monkey encounter is unadvertised and unexploited. This place is a GEM. You have to go.
