El Con Con

End of the main street in Playa Juan Doilo, Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic
Update restaurant details
Ranked #6 of 19 restaurants in Juan Dolio
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: The atmosphere is top notch, but it is squandered by the absolute worst service one can imagine. Where nearly everyone we encountered in the DR was warm and friendly, these guys were surly and rude. Known for their brick oven pizza, they were unable to serve it to us since they were out of cheese. How does that happen to a pizza place? Final strike, three of got sick after eating there. Avoid this disaster.

We went with friends one night. 3 of us ordered Presidente Beer, they had 1. Then we ordered another local beer & they had none. Finally found something they had. The food was ok, but I thought the portions were rather small. We were the only ones there, it's at the end of the street, with not much around, so... More

Went with my wife, our two boys and the in-laws and had a great night, we walked from our condo down to Con-Con because it was taunted by our host as the best restaurant around and we were not disappointed in the least. First off they had a swing set and slide for our 2 year old to run around... More

Best brick oven pizza I've even had! Was there in July 2007 for a bachelor party and stumbled upon this place. I could never remember the name til now. The crust was crispy but soft and the fresh cut, thick sliced pepperoni and melted cheese were to die for! Any seafood dish was tasty as well. We all got something... More

This restaurant has a big variety of plates. The pizza is delicious, the pasta, and the typical dominican plate: La bandera (white rice, beans, chicken and tostones). I highly recommend it!

Considering that Juan Dolio is a mainly tourist area and mostly catering to Italian tourist and expats, I have to say that was better than plensantly surprised. They had just about everything I ordered (octopus ran out one evening), and based on other local places I eat at, was the best of all. The Octopus salad - great, the chicharron... More
