Sunset spot down a little path...we ordered our drinks and went down here. By the time we came back our delicious meal was served. Romantic spot! Would recommend it!

Located on a peninsula just a few kilometers south of Dominical, La Parcela should top every visitor's list of must-visit restaurants. The food is superb--I would recommend one of the shrimp entrées, preceded by either the exquisite tuna tartare or the fish ceviche-- and the...More

Really good tuna tartare. The monkeys showed up during dinner which was entertaining. The ice cream for dessert was refreshing.

We've eaten here a couple of times. The food is delicious and the ocean view, especially at sunset, is incredible. The service is also great. We did get eaten by noseeums (chinchas) so be careful.

Great place. Ate here twice. Right on the rocks. Low tide is best. Good menu with lots of choices. Great place to eat and enjoy the sunset.

We visited La Parcela on our final night in Costa Rica. It was raining heavily and we arrived at dusk. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived, but shortly after a tour bus dropped off 20 or so people for dinner. Service was slow,...More

Always a favorite. Great place with a dynamite view of the ocean. Great drinks and food. And, the capuchin monkeys almost always make an afternoon appearance. Fun for the family. Nice staff, reasonable prices.

4pm - 6pm is when the monkeys come. They stop by on their way to and from their daily adventures. So make sure you have your cameras ready. They are so much fun.
