How to get there
From the entrance of Dominical go to the T and take a left. Go past the bus stop and at the ICE building take a right. Once you get to the beach take a right and Tortilla Flats will be on your right, just across from the beach.

Our Locals' Tip: The calamari is wonderful as an appetizer or full meal. If you are looking for good food with great sunsets - this is it!
Tortilla Flats started out as a place for a quick stop for the surfers passing through Dominical and a local hangout during the evening over 10 years ago. The food was considered good, and you could not beat the perfect beachfront location. These are things that many restaurants are noted for as you criss cross the different shorelines of Costa Rica. So you might ask how Tortilla Flats, in a few short years, has become one of the best known restaurants in Costa Rica?
It boils down to a lot of heart, ingenuity and hard work on the part of the owner, Jennifer Brummer, and the staff she has put together. Keeping an eye on food quality and preparation is only a small piece of the puzzle. Jen, as she is known by the locals, is always trying to think outside the box. Adding features like a skate ramp in the rear of the restaurant, a large sheltered deck for additional outdoor dining and bringing in live music after the dining hours have been top choices. The skate ramp alone, which is the only skate ramp in the Costa Ballena Region has brought skaters and surfers from all over the world to the half pipe and to brave one of the powerful waves that just happens to roll in steps away from the entrance. Diving into community projects for the beach, lifeguards and fundraisers have brought an endearing reputation from the locals and the repeat visitors that find their way back each year.
The real charm of Tortilla Flats is the friendliness and comfortable surroundings you find yourself in. It's O.K. to wear beach clothing, and once you enter the open-aired restaurant, you get caught up in the friendly hello's and conversation. The surfers may have passed the word on about the sweet waves found at Dominical Beach, but it's Tortilla Flats food and Style that has kept them and non surfers coming year after year.
Expect a full menu with selections that range from sandwiches to seafood dinners. The bar serves cold beer and all types of alcoholic beverages.
Simply put - Tortilla Flats has it all! Whether your just looking for a beach front restaurant with incredible food, a lively beach front bar with ocean breezes or a place to stay with waves out the front door and a skate ramp out the back, Tortilla Flats is your place!
