This restaurant was recommended for our first night in Cabarete and what a disappointment... The location is beautiful with a spot on the beautiful, Cabarete Beach but that is where the magic ends. I will say the staff is friendly and helpful but the big letdown was the food. We ordered Tuna Tartar to start and it was almost inedible... More

Dear Steve P, Because the matter of “taste” is as subjective as a Dali painting I will not argue whether you liked it or you didn’t. I do apologize if we overcooked your grilled shrimp. However, when you cast doubts about the freshness of our seafood, I must draw a line. As I’m sure you experienced, La Casita de Papi... More

La Casita De Papi is where we celebrated New Years Eve, and it was SPECTACULAR! We'd been told by anyone who's ever been there to make sure to try the lobster and the shrimp, so we did. I ordered the lobster, my husband ordered the shrimp, and then we shared. I honestly can't tell you which I preferred, because they... More

That little shop serves so delicious meal and the people there are so friendly. Try the chicken with mushroom sauce crêpe, absolutely fantastik. We had also a very good veggies soup and the half chicken. It's a must try. Not expansive.

Best food on the beach. Quality seafood and the best service in a romantic setting. A but on the pricy side but definitely worth it.

Moderate food, not too active and care taking service at a time when the restaurant was 40% full. Food did not meet the expectations I suppose. It was not bad! Wine selection however was poor. Chairs and tables were old, worn out and even broken. Too many stars given in TripAdvisor.
