You'll feel like you're somewhere in the middle of Madrid once you come into the restaurant. Whilst the atmosphere could benefit of a slight improvement the food is what matters and you can't go wrong at Don Pepe.

Pricey, but worth it. If you want to have an excellently prepared Spanish/European style meal, this is the place to go. An excellent wine list caps off the meal. Many go with fish on this beautiful menu, but I had Veal medallions in lemon sauce and it was excellent! Great for business meals, lunch or dinner.

Definitely one of the best choices in Santo Domingo for Spanish cuisine. They have what might be the best Jamón Ibérico you can have in a restaurant in Santo Domingo.

The soup starters were just lukewarm.The seafood... More

In the heart of downtown santo domingo this old world charmer pays attention to every detail. The menu is diverse. We settled on the roasted suckling pig and a seafood platter that was cooked to perfection. The wine list is as well varied so you can't miss pairing your food with your favorite. Ambience and service first class as is... More
