I am from Omaha Nebraska where you can get a good steak. I would put one of Papillon's Filets up against any I have had in Omaha.

Delicious food and huge portions. We were very happy! They very kindly shut down the restaurant to accomodate our group. We would go there again.

The food here is all amazing and the owner Tomas is a great guy. My girlfriend and I tried the onion pie, the escargot, the filet mignon, lobster tail and the chocolate mouse dessert. All were outstanding. This is a short walk from the Lifestyle resort and a GREAT break from the resort food. Do not miss it if you... More

We were a group of 20, and were all cheering and toasting the owner when we left. Varied menu with filet mignon, seafood and other specialties. Very nice cuts of filet, which we had, but others at the table were very pleased with their choices. Don't be afraid to try something different here, as the food seemed to be consistently... More

We visited on March 2nd. Thomas was amazing, not only our server but the chef as well!! The surf and turf easily had the biggest lobster I've even seen served and the sauce on the chicken was so rich and beautiful. There was a salad that was served with the steak that was sublime. So much flavour! Great ambience, cozy... More

Pretty amazing how he can juggle all those jobs at once. Food was average, price for DR a little higher than the... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend of mine that has been a patron for many years. Her descriptions of the food quality, flavour and portion size were not wrong. The food here was fantastic. I had just a simple garlic bread to start as my friend was having her favourite Caesar salad, the garlic bread was probably the best... More

My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday dinner (also happens to be Valentine's Day)while we were staying at a resort close by. We were lucky enough to get a reservation because someone had just canceled a few minutes before we called. The place is quaint and adorable set the forests with beautiful surroundings. There were 6 tables, two... More

If you're spending a week or so in one of the all-inclusive resorts outside of Puerto Plata on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic (on Playa Dorada), about mid-week you're going to get awfully sick and tired of the buffet, so I'd like to recommend Le Papillon, about a 20-minute drive in Cofresi (just across from the tourist attraction,...
