I had a great seafood pasta dish in tomato sauce here and it wasn't too expensive. The decor is nice (beach-white). The on-water location and view are good. There is discrepancy between restaurants if the 10% legal tip and the 18% tax are included in the price or not; this place only charged me the 10% tip so the tax... More

The restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday afternoon, as all others were in Bayahibe that day. We had to figure out things from the spanish menu and the waiter did not speak english either. But we managed to order and we got what we had ordered. The portions were okay in size and the food was tasty. We had... More

As the name of the restaurant the entrance was the sea it self... Olive oil, garlic and inhabitants of the sea all around in a feast of aromas and flavors from the Mediterranean Sea.. In Dominican Republic... Before the pasta I ask for a another Negroni unfortunately served with a cheap gin yet the view of the restaurant balanced the... More

Great food, really like this place. Nicely situated with a view of the Bay. The food is delicious, still working my way through the sauce options, but each one so fare has been as good or better than the last. Is becoming our Thursday Night, Dinner Out location. Wonderful Drink Selection as well.

Being the only guest for a dinner should have been a warning. Biggest menu in the Caribbean of which half was not available, and the other prefabricated, far from fresh food. Chewing gum is more tasty than their octopus salad. The french fries were more flexible than a elastic cord. Disgrace!

Beautiful view, it was great fun to watch the boats unload their sunburned passengers at the end of the day. No English spoken, no translations on the menu. My husband speaks Spanish (but not foodie). We got by and had a nice meal. Prepare to wait a bit...this is dining...

This restaurant arguably has the best location in the town and features a two story view of the water. My wife and I had lunch there. While the owner speaks only Italian and our waiter only spoke some English, we were able to “point and shoot” at the menu. We found our luncheon choices to be very good that ended... More

good seafood and pasta dishes, I would consider it fine dining by my standards for the Dominican Republic. This place has a great atmosphere and location right on the water. While we were enjoying dinner there was a performer who came and serenaded us at the end of the meal. Service was good.
