Awesome Location

Excellent service. Great tapas, awesome wine, rum and cocktail selection. The government is making the Colonial Zone (La Zona) easier to get around and safer, parts are still being constructed but access to Lulu is easy. Highly recommended.

Superb location, Spanish and sort of elegant minimalism. Santo Domingo has its fair chare of beautyspots, almost brings me back to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. We just had desserts and cocktails. Inventive Creme Brulee with three flavours. It showed the class of this place. Expensive for Santo Domingo. But I understand why.

The 2 for 1 specials are fantastic bargains, featuring tasty small plates well presented. The waiters are well balanced between being friendly yet professional.The only drawback seems to be that there is a little disorganization in the early evening.

Located in the heart of Old Town is this wonderful, secret epicurean experience called Lulu. There is an outside dining venue on their square if you choose to have a cigar following the meal (the selection of cigars and wines are fabulous), but the real treat for me is dining in the courtyard. This turn of the century home with... More

situated in the colonial zone it gives this restaurant it's magical feel...the food though was bland, lacking in flavors, and The items on the menu claiming to have foie gras in them, well to say the least, we couldn't even taste it, let alone see it. The tuna nachos and satay were yummy...and great bread!

Visited for the third time and it is consistent with the service quality. I recommend you buy your wine next door at La Enoteca which has a good selection of wines, champagne, and whisky. The uncorking fee is approximately $17
