Great food, great owner.

We love coming to this place for a romantic evening. Whenever we need to eat something different in the Bavaro area, we go to Chez Mon Ami. The meat is always perfect. NEVER disappointed!

Checked out a few restaurants in the area, this one based on a recommendation. Not a place I would go back to.friendly staff and nice ambiance, but pricey and nothing that made me go 'wow'. The pasta was more like a Chinese food dish, quite salty. The fried calamari was ok.... Just not a wow experience.

This place was really cool. The vibes were everything....locals dancing with each other, children playing near by, everyone laughing by the bar, motor bikes wisking by, tourist happily enjoying their food and the atmosphere. We had the fish ceveiche, Red Sole special, Dominican beef stew. The wine was great, not cheap at all. What really makes this place special is... More

I have been there a few times and was never disappointed. It is very French, onion soup gratine, steak with peppercorn sauce, shrimp cocktail. The staff is very attentive. It is a little expensive but worth the price.

Excellent value for money. French owner always there. Correct staff. Very good chef. Nice menu but ask for special courses that might be available. For example red tuna tataki. Correct wine price range. Fine desserts such as crime brulle and hot apple pie served with vanilla ice cream. Food very well presented and always at perfect temperature and served all... More

I really like the ambient of this restaurant, located in the area known as "El Cortecito". I had been years without eating snails as they were prepared there, they were amazing, I had already given up on eating this kind of dishes in Punta Cana until I ended up in Chez Mon Ami. I recommend this place for a romantic... More
