We live in Cabarete and were in Santiago doing some shopping. We told our driver to take us to the best seafood restaurant in Santiago. Well he certainly did. We walked in and this place oozed fine dining. The wait staff was super attentive and professional. I had the best Sea Bass I've ever had in the world. We were... More

I have been visiting Santiago for more that 30 years now. Restaurants come and go, but El Pez Dorado has always been there even before I started visiting Santiago. It is kind an old fashion restaurant, but the food is always good.

Locals will tell you this restaurant has long been a favorite and one of the best in the city, but for this first time visitor it exceeded expectations. We were part of a cruise ship tour visiting the interior of the Dominican Republic, and lunch at Pez Dorado was included, but our meal transcended what one would rightfully expect under... More

We've been visiting Pez Dorado for at least 20 years... This time around food was not the same, simply not as memorable for the price-quality-service ratio. Not even the famous thin tostones were memorable, sorry to say. Croquetas were tiny and over fried. Seafood rice was tasty and with adequate portion of seafood. Filete de Mero was "so-so". Waiter was... More
