The place serves decent food but seems to be totally outdated in the sense that you get the feeling that everything dates from 20 years ago. Also the proximity of the Malecon street makes it very noisy. If you are not into something romantic this could be an option, but we will not come again.

Small little restaurant next to Napolitano hotel. We ordered the grilled fish and grilled chicken. Took a while for the food to come out but it was good.

Charlie y Christian it is a food option to visit in the male on area in Santo Domingo. The cons are the noise in the front avenue during day time, at night it is more calm. The food and service are very good. Must visitors are French. Good option to visit.
