Along the Costanera Highway from Dominical to Punta Mala you'll see signs shouting "Ceviche," sold from carts with cooler chests or in rickety roadside ranchos. If you're interested in trying this local specialty—raw fish and seafood marinated in lime juice and spiced up with onions and red peppers—try the ceviche at this breezy, open-air restaurant that's just steps from the sea. The ceviche is the freshest you'll find: among the various versions, the shrimp and sea bass marinated in coconut milk is a specialty. But don't stop at the ceviche: the fish and seafood are fresh and well prepared, along with a few more exotic dishes, including an excellent chicken curry. This airy space is sometimes the venue for food festivals organized by El Sabor de Ojochal, an association of local restaurants.
