It's a must visit on Dominican gastronomie. A top 5 in the country. Full menu, with seasonal options and great food festivals. Great service and attentions. Obviously not cheap, but best price/performance rate.

First time in santo domingo and was looking for a great place to eat and thanks to my fellow reviewer on trip advisor I found it. This place has great food and was very tasteful and the staff was nice. I went during the week so it was pretty empty around 4pm but around 8pm area comes alive.
