This is a legitimate "on the beach" restaurant/bar with average seating, food and service. having chairs in the sand can be annoying as the legs sink and getting up can be a chore. The ocean view makes it worth it.

Located on Playa Dorada beach, just off all-inclusive medium to low key hotels, lies Hispaniola Restaurant, that thrives on selling fast food including poutine to hotel guests tired of boring oodle salad buffets.

This place is really worth a visit. Is is managed by a very nice family and you feel like at home. We got one of the two tables at the beach and it was very romantic. It is important to call ahead so that they know if you want lobster in order to prepare.

I visited yesterday and was told by locals the the restaurant has been closed for at least a month and the owner went back to Canada - I was very disappointed based on the great reviews - my rating is obviously based on the prior opinions of others

My friend & I were in Puerto Plata for 2 weeks in April and heard that there was an awesome "poutine" place down the beach so we headed there once per week as we enjoyed the walk, food & service. Upon arrival the first time, we were greeted by François's (owner) brother Georgio who set us up (4 of us)... More
