We stopped by The Dome on happenstance, ordered frozen fruit drinks and root beer floats, had to wait, so ordered lunch. Wow. Great jerk chicken burritos and curry! Craft beer also. The staff is super friendly. It may not look like much, but everything is cooked to order.

We have eaten here several times over the years while staying in the area. We have never been disappointed. The burritos are big enough to share or feed one teenage boy. The menu is extensive and location easy to spot from the road.

I thought based on the reviews and the pictures, that this place would be worth hitting up. The views and atmosphere are not as pictured. The restraunt sits in the front of a parking lot to a 2 story strip mall. The only view is of the highway and various retailers along the strip. After riding three hours on a... More

If you find yourself on Costa Ballena looking for a great breakfast or lunch, stop in and have the best pancakes or burgers around. The food is wonderful and the staff is amazing and friendly.

Absolutely fantastic food and service. We had a burger, jerk chicken special and the jerk chicken wrap and all of them were outstanding. The service was fast, professional, friendly, and very attentive. We loved the atmosphere and are planning on going back as often as we can. Loved it!

Reasonable burgers, burritos, hot dogs, etc., for a reasonable cost. We went a couple times during our weeklong visit, and found the food reliable and tasty. Nothing extravagant, and it felt very American, but that worked well for a couple kids who weren't as excited about experimenting with local food as the adults were. The service was very friendly.

Half way through our long stay in Costa Rica our kids needed some American food. The Dome came through perfectly. We were able to get some good Latin specials while the kids got American burgers and fries. Quality was excellent for both American and Latin dishes.
