We went here for bar food. Burgers and chicken wings. Both were good but a little bit too much sauces provided. Located in the middle of all the action. Good atmosphere and set up.

I'm not sure how this place got only $$, everything here was super expensive. The '3 course meal'-- which only included 2 courses for some reason, cost almost $50 USD, two small probably 4 oz fillets of lion fish cost $25. The place was very loud for a friday night, and it was too dark to see the ocean, so... More

We wanted to experience the Dominican Republic outside of our resort so we decided to venture to Bayahibe to get a feel for this fishing village. We speak very little Spanish and began to feel a little uncomfortable when we arrived. We had planned to spend the day at the beach, eat lunch, explore the town, and return to our... More

When we first arrived in Bayahibe we walked around town to get a feel for where things were and maybe have a Presidente! When we got to the Saona Cafe there where a bunch of people at the bar and a few sitting for meals. It had this great vibe, people having fun and a great view of the harbor.... More

Good service and right on the beach. We only had a couple of beers but we were made welcome. We needed a good beer before walaking back to our hotel.

What a fun spot and great addition to the town of Bayahibe. We arrived in the late afternoon after taking the quaqua ($1/each) from our resort near Dominicus. It was so nice to get off the resort for a change of pace and explore the town to see the real DR. We had heard about the Saona Café through Tripadvisor... More

The hot spot in the middle of the action in Bayahibe. I recommend Pit Stop once Bayahibe closes at 12am.
