I went there one year ago on November 2013 and had a great experience. Food was great, traditional Dominican creole food. So I went again on December 2014. It was really really bad. We were 4 people. Service was very slow. Almost 15 minutes just to pass the orders. Then another 45 minutes waiting for the food. I've ordered white... More

Not sure why this place isn't higher on the list of restos as they food is great! If you want local DR food, this is the place to go. It's considered pricey, but the food doesn't disappoint. Located in the Zona Colonial, but just off the main road. However, not hard to find. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed the ambiance and the atmosphere - the food was very tasty. We sat upstairs, which is very nice with lost of lovely artwork - a nice place for lunch.

This was our last night in Santo Domingo and it was near perfect. Found this on Trip Advisor--5 min from our hotel---live salsa band, local food and reasonable prices. And there was a TV on so that my husband could watch the game live.

Lovely blue building in the colonial zone. We had the infamous crab empanadas and icy cold Presidente beer-wonderful!! Then followed with fish for main entrees- we all thought the food and service we outstanding. We will be back, bringing our guests who come and visit us.

Nice local spot. Decent reasonably priced food (mains for about $15 USD). Service was ok, we were there at a busy time it seemed.

For good quality traditional food this is definitely the go-to place. The prices are between $8 - $15 USD and the portions are a decent size. They also have a small Arturo Fuente cigar selection and I even saw some Johnnie Walker Green label on the shelf at the bar.

Went there with a local person that told me they had the best Lambi empanadas and had to try them, as pretty much everywhere in town beer was extremely cold as i like, and i wasn't disappointed at all with the food either, really nice spot.

I was looking forward to an authentic Dominican dining experience at Meson D'Bari. The location and setting did not disappoint. The interior is cool and has a genuine local feel, rather than fake antiquity. However it quickly became clear that service was not a priority. It was perfunctory and haphazard. I ordered the crab empenada which was overcooked and dry,... More
