We were walking around Dominicus when we stumbled upon this little restaurant. We got there at 5, and they were closed, but told us they can pick us up at 7 (their opening time). Big thumbs up for that as we would have to cab or walk a long time to get there. The decoration and location is absolutely perfect:... More

We made a reservation at Le Vivier after seeing the #1 ranking on TA for La Romana area restaurants. We stayed at Casa de Campo. Travel time is 30 minutes each way from this resort. The restaurant occupies the third floor of a building and you can see the blue lights strung all around the outside from the street. The... More

We walked by the restaurant several times. It sits on the 3rd floor, lots of stairs. This little restaurant is very cute. At night, from the street the lighting is very attractive. The hostess/waitress is a doll. She speaks French, Spanish & English. Now about the food: the Maison Punch is a small glass of fruit juices & rum. Very... More

If you are a seafood lover, you must visit the Vivier. On a spectacular terrace overlooking the little village of Dominicus, Olivier, a real French chef, will grill fresh lobsters to the perfection, just in front of your eyes, as Géraldine will charm you with her fabulous smile and personality! For a unique experience, reserve in advance for a ''cigale'',... More

We wanted to change from the "all inclusive" formula where the amount of food in our plates is minimum, so we went to Le Vivier and had a very romantic diner. Furthermore we reserved for the sunday night and halfway through our diner , the owner told us that she opened just for us ! The quality, the service and... More

This restaurant is owned by very cute french couple. They are so nice and helpful. Lobster is excellent as most of their menu is composed of it. Beef and fish were wonderful. Their dessert is pure heaven. It's very clean with warm and original decoration. There is a demonstration to feed a lobsters and to learn more about them. Nice... More
