Quite good restaurant for the price. Without being extraordinary food, its probably the best quality/price in domicical. Real good guanàbana and strawberry smoothies.

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.

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.
