Up a winding dirt road....we thought we might be lost....but at the top of the hill is a wonderful gem of a restaurant with ocean views on all sides! We loved the open air and the views are spectacular! The food and drinks were good but they did not take credit cards. We are so glad we found La Parcela!... 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.

The place stands almost secretly on a rock cape , with amazing sea view on both sides. The cook is talented : one of the best grilled tuna I've ever enjoyed. Perfect cooking and a delicate balance of Teriyaki flavor. Delightful. The service could be better. But waow , this was excellent time.

This is one of the most incredible, amazing restaurants in the world. It is situated on a small peninsula and has ocean views on both sides. The restaurant is open so there are view and breezes. It is all about relaxing and enjoying the world. The view alone is reason enough to come but then there is the food. The... More

We had a fantastic fish meal, highly recommend the fish ceviche, calamari and fish soup. This is one of the best fish meals we have had. The setting is stunning with sea views on both sides of the restaurant and a lovely breeze.

Food and service were great. Needed four wheel drive to get there and the parking area was covered in fallen and rotting mangos, but the view was stunning!

Yes, we came for the sunset views, too, and were not disappointed. Then, just before dinner, a capuchin monkey tried to join us and the kids were ecstatic! Most of us had some type of seafood plate or other and none were disappointed. I don't remember the fish, but it was prepared and served "en papillotte" with vegetables and rice... More

Yes they were serving 17 of us but we had reservations two days prior, they could have brought more staff. The drinks took forever to come out. The place is quaint but great views. Food was reasonable in quality and price.

You are surrounded by beautiful views and the sounds of the waves on the rocks below. There are monkeys and toucans in the trees. The service is top notch, and the food is amazing. They also make great cocktails and desserts. You'll want to make it last!
