Again great service, the food is not bad but the winning item here is the outdoor patio, perhaps the most beautiful one in Santo Domingo, on monday they have live jazz but those young loud dominican girls that go there for the scene and not for the music ruin my experience otherwise a great place to visit

We visited on Feb 21, 2014 and look forward to returning. We were novices to tapas and were guided helpfully by staff. We selected 4 items all of which were delightful! One was shrimp satay with red curry sauce.....perfection. Cuban sliders were also excellent. The sangria was authentic in taste and presentation. Eventually we came to dessert, I was full... More

Ambiance is modern and cool. Music gets loud later in the evening and is a great place for a drink and small dinner. Service is very good. The food is ok and the menu confusing. The cuisine pretends to be sophisticated but is just average. Not a family place, but definitely a good option.

We had 2 evenings at Lulu's this year. We love the place (beautiful patio) and the atmosphere. The service is really correct, and the food is original and pretty good (loved the blue cheese and walnuts snails !). The wine list is also of a good consistency (for the country !). On the other hand, we had a good laugh... More

We celebrated 2 birthdays together at Lulu and were able to use the "private sala" just off the bar. We ordered drinks and cocktails from the bar, and walked next door to La Enoteca to choose our wines for the evening. The wines are served at your table.

Outstanding spot in Colonial City part of Santo Domingo. Entering this gorgeous hacienda-like spot is so tranquil like - a far cry from what one thinks of as Santo Domingo, that you just sit and enjoy the moment and then voila check out that menu of really great choices.
