A very strong selection of food and preparation. The service was nicely done. Have dined out in more than 43 countries and this is one I will remember.

We arrived at this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend who lives in this area. The restaurant has a pleasant feel to it, and a large menu to select from. It was early afternoon, and not busy. Just a table of four, and a single gentleman at another. We ordered drinks which took some time to arrive, and then... More

Ordered filet mignon. Got a horrible piece of meat with tendons and mushroom sauce. Not my idea of filet mignon. The waiter said it's correct so I guess it is.

This place actually looks very nice and the food is average, however we've got the spaghettis not cook very well, and the worse part was having to wait for very long time until some one actually though that we might wanna drink something, as soonest drinks were brought, they just left them at the table for us to serve them,...

We ate here our first night in Juan Dolio. Food was very good, nice service, lots of choices. We have a young child with us so sitting outside was perfect. I'm sure we will eat here again before leaving. Also they had a large wine selection to choose from.

I liked the Dorado in Spicy Oil (it's not oil & it's not all that spicy) better than the red snapper. Two of our friends had chicken dishes &... More

The hole family of five was very happy with the food and service. There were many options (almost to many) of dishes and a long list of wines to choice from. The kids had fillet Mignon and we had the grilled mixed seafood plate.
