I ate here for most of my meals because it was too hard to beat. They offer a variety of local and other foods that are wonderful. I recommend the Casados and trying their smoothies (a frozen chocolate banana really hits the spot)!

The best food in the whole Costa Rica!! I ate all my meals there whilst staying in Dominical. Honestly there isn't a bad choice on the menu (and I tried many different options). Must try a monoloco and chocobanana smoothies ♥

The best coffee grown and managed by a WOMEN! In a place where you usually only find instant coffee, a nice cup of coffee with breakfast or lunch or a hearty, healthy and delicious smoothie... any combo of fruit for the same price!!! Worth every penny!! Located right behind Domilocos!!
