Had lunch here on Xmas day and it was a good, reasonably priced meal. I had the Chicken Casado and my wife had seafood rice and we were both happy with the food. Service was good also.

We rolled in here for lunch immediately upon our arrival to Dominical. The "typical food" is served up hot, fresh and fast, though they offer a wide variety of delicious dishes in addition The young guy working the floor has excellent English and patient with weak Spanish, including mine. The portions are ok, the cold beer flows, the sounds of... More

We stayed her for one night and then left again. Its a very cheap place to stay and you get what you pay for. Small, damp room with shared, messy bathrooms and the shared kitchen is dark and uninviting. Best thing is the location with the surf spot across the road. The staff was not very inviting and didn't really... More

The restaurant has great beach view, fresh air and open space. The food is good, goo and acceptable price. Also is good just for drink a beer.

Ask if they have fresh tuna. If they do it is great. Friendly staff. Take mosquito spray! OK mixed drinks.

Never go wrong with a lunch at Cocos on the beach in Dominical. Staff is always super friendly, and food is consistent and very tasty! Watch the surf while having lunch is the best.

We ate here our first night in Dominical. Was highly recommended by Max, our hotel owner. We had the seared tuna with mashed potatoes and a coconut/spicy sauce. Was very good and in front of the beach.

This place is right in front of the beach and was a great experience. The prices were very reasonable given the location and the portions were ample. My wife wasn't too pleased with the wings, but the girls had casados (local lunch special) and loved them. I couldn't quite decide, but the waiter suggested the tuna steak and it was... More

We really liked El Coco - feels like a lot of locals eat there. Service was really friendly and the food was solid - nothing unexpected, just basics done well (great grilled chicken, fried rice, quesadillas, smoothies, etc.).

El Coco was a nice surprise, we had been going to another restaurant at the other end of the board walk. One night we wanted a change. El Coco hit the spot. Friendly waiters/waitresses, nice view of ocean, sunsets and good food. All the service providers are excellent. Ronny is super. Over the several months we have been here in... More
