Nice friendly place

Just stopped to have a couple drinks in the shade. Very friendly and a great location to people watch. They even have a clean toilet for their customers, which is unusual on this beach. Can't give 5 stars only because we didn't try the food. You'll like it here.

One of my favorite places in the Dominican Republic. When in town, I spend many hours during the day just lounging under the trees, listening to Tom's music and enjoying conversations with some of the most fantastic, friendly, genuine people you will ever meet. The Scandinavians that go to this place daily are amazing!

Sitting on the beach and soaking up sun requires fuel, and Tom's ribs are just the thing. We shared a medium order for lunch with a couple of large, cold Presidentes. With our backs to the beach, we enjoyed watching as Tom threw our slab on the grill to finish them, and had great fun watching all the beachgoers strolling... More

We come to the Dominican every year around this time and one of our must "go to" spots is this little resto at Sosùa beach! Tom and his wife are very gracious and work extremely hard to ensure that things stay the same from year to year!!! We always have ribs and President light and we sit, relax & just... More

If you like your ribs fresh off the bbq. If you like your ribs tender with meat that falls off of the bone. If you like more ribs than you can possibly eat. This place is for YOU. Best tables on the beach - solid wood picnic table style with padded benches. Attentive servers who actually notice that your drink... More

Where do I start? Great location (on the beach), fantastic and very friendy owner, and the food... When Kate Moss said "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels", she clearly hadn't had the ribs with special Jack Daniels sauce. I honestly didn't believe I could eat so much. Amazing food, cold beer, great company... What more can you ask for?

This is the place to spend your day when on Sosua Beach. The owner, Tom, has chosen only the best ingredients, every morning he goes to different shops to pick up only the best. The result is the best food on the beach. Try his Baby Back Ribs with homemade Jack Daniels BBQ sauce. To die for. This is also... More

We came to the beach one afternoon and stumbled upon this place. We found the atmosphere to be very good, nice beach view. The menu is quite large. I ordered the jalapeno cheese sausage. The plate was huge.. We would definitely come back here.
