A beautiful place that is obviously aimed at the richer segment of the Dominican Republic and tourist. We were very impressed with Lulu's Tasting bar of the same owners the week before. We should have gone back there. Our experience here was ok, the mojito was very good, the accordion of avocado salad was good and the service was good... More

I've been there many times since feb. 2014, the chef is really good and the menu changes every week or so, so you always have new options. Nevertheless, my last experience, end of april, wasn't satisfactory. My wife ate a risotto more likely a soup and some of my other guests also were disappointed with their selections. I haven't come... More

We went on a Wednesday in July, everyone was sitting outside. Server was okay with no smile or introduction. They have trained a server just to bring your drinks only and another person to set up your plates and cutlery. Apple crispy appetizer were good and entres as well. The only dessert we like to try the rum chocolate cake... More

Delicious food and a great ambience. Set in an historic tavern in the First City of the Americas, Pat'e Palo is a local institution. Most dishes are above average to good. Nothing will blow you away, bit you won't have a bad meal either.

We took 2 friends from Argentina. We had a nice experience eating in the outside tables. This restaurant is a very good option to eat with visitors in the Colonial Zone. Good atmosphere. Good music.
