Sadly, in each of our two visits over the past 2 years, once in May, the other this December, the restaurant has been closed during our entire vacation…I saw no info online regarding any extended closing.

The restaurant is small. But, is just perfect. For a romantic dinner. The drinks are amazing. The staff is excelent. The only thing I didn't like was that we have to drive for about half an hour to get there from Samana.

Only visited for cocktails and they were yummy! Bit on the expensive side but grab at least one drink and watch the life that is Las Galeras go by.

Delicious food, clean and well executed. We ate here almost every night during our week in Las Galeras. The menu is extensive and will delight a wide range of palets. The service is excellent.

Very nice, open-air restaurant on the main street of Las Galeras, very close to the beach. Frequented by "expats" from a variety of European and Latin American countries. Good food, good service, a little more expensive than nearby restaurants, but worth it.

They served appetizers and drinks only. The mixed plate was not good. I give the food 4/10. Atmosphere was 7/10
