Relaxing, nice background music where can easily have a conversation with your dining companions. They have a nice selection of wines also.

Perhaps we came on the wrong night, perhaps we ordered the wrong dishes, perhaps we were unexpected. Whatever the circumstances, I give La Taberna Vasca a resounding and audible 'non.' The meal started out well enough with sparkling water and a small bit of bread, but past that point it was disappointing. The salmon was of poor quality, overdone, and... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant and were enchanted. Francky is amazing, friendly, and a genius chef and restaurateur. He prepared us a special dish of tiny calamari sauteed in wine and garlic that was not on the menu, the terrine was lovely, and the red snapper with a delicate sauce was one of the best dishes I have ever...

I have been going to the Dominican Republic for 12 years. I discovered this restaurant a year ago and I have been several times since. This is by far, the best restaurant I have enjoyed... anywhere on the island. The food is spectacular, the service is amazing, the atmosphere is incredible and the prices are reasonable.

Fabulous setting in the heart of the Zona Colonial. Charming and very well kept colonial house. We shared a fabulous tapas dish that included a scrumptious seafood. Our entrees were exceptional as well as the desserts. The service was delightful and friendly . And the prices were Very good.

Great place to chill with a friend or a girl. I spent pretty much a great time with the music and the food. Really good place to enjoy a good time and not spend that much money. Really liked it.

It used to be a famous restaurant with great chefs and good owner. Now the cook is a cook but not a chef at all and not even french. Even with the nice welcoming of the new owner, there is nothing to say about the place. You don't come to a restaurant for the lights or the design but primary... More

The lamb chop is a fault, too big bone and not meaty.the foie gras... More
