Had a Lambi creole style and two pineapple juice for 420 pesos or 8 Dollars. There were a couple of regulars there, mood was friendly, waitress was attentive. Second best option after Mata Rosada.

We chose this place based on the menu variety and reasonable prices. Some dishes the 6 of us tried included: chicken sandwich, pasta carbonara, sausage and potatoes, and coconut fish. Everyone was satisfied with their food but the coconut fish was by far the best! The sauce made it! Really good even on the french fries and potatoes! Overall this... More

Coffee & food delicious. We had delicious fish lunch [off menu - a 'catch of that day' ] and for dinner beef with an 'au poivre' sauce....quite unexpected from this laid-back simple spot. Here, the atmosphere is easy...don't be in any rush. Great jazz CD collection, decent sound [a nice change to often blaring music on scratchy sound systems] It's... More

Overall a good place but needs a real approach to a real restaurant. Owners are very nice people but menu is short and limited. Go for pastas and anything else but burger they were awful

Liked this for my time in Samana when I go working normally not less than one week. They have fruit and a good coffee and own also the bakery two steps before. The owner speaks French and Spanish and he is not very awake but always trying to make you feel better. I think he is a kick guy but... More

Nice food and reasonably priced, worth dropping in for one of their chicken gyros. Can sit inside or out on the covered patio.

I visit many times a week. Good basic breakfast. "kabob" sandwich is pretty darn good, burger isn't too bad either. Service is always friendly and good. Nice view of the marina. Shaded areas w fans outside and fans inside. Lots of regulars to talk with and the owner is almost always there and is very friendly.

Poor service....were bothered at our table by a swarm of bees and a shoe shining haitian pan handler. He sat at our table! Maybe we were too polite to him but restaurant staff should have asked him not to bother their customers. So irritating that we didn't bother to finish our crappy breakfast. Who screws up scrambled eggs and toast?... More
