The Best Location For Dinner

The location is fantastic. You are overlooking the beautiful Sosua Bay. The food is ok. For a place this fancy I feel the food should be better and larger portions. If you just want to have a light biite to eat and have some drinks over looking the water this is the best place maybe in the world!

I make it a point to go to this restaurant, several times, when I am in Sosua. The food is fresh and absolutely wonderful. The awesome view of the ocean makes this a very relaxing place to be.

We went twice during our trip. One meal was excellent, second time was average. A full varied menu with salads, seafood, steak, chicken, pasta, pork, you name it! A little overpriced. There is a covered dining section and large patio dining. Friendly and fast service. Open for lunch and dinner. Very lovely in the evening overlooking the ocean.

Very good food and the view was excellent. The service was attentive. It began to rain and the waiter rushed us and our food and our drinks under a shelter before we felt a drop.

I have been to Sosua lots of times, on my last trip there I was meeting a bunch of friends out for dinner at this restaurant, I had heard great things about this place but needed to try it for myself. I'm not picky but really enjoy good food. I was staying right next door at the Casa Marina, there... More
