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.

If mosquitoes are a problem this place is for you. It is totally screened in. They offer very fresh seafood at reasonable prices.

I reviewed this place a few years back when it was located next the Albatros (a good place not to stay). Back then I found it charming with good service and good food. Now it is across the street and down a few blocks to the North. It is more upscale in decor and the food is decent, but the... More

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
