Absolutely fabulous. The chef is Modigliany cuisine. Its petals with fish sauce and a pinch of wasabi were breathtaking. One of the best experiences of my monthly trip to the Dominicans. Heavenly view from the restaurant totally repulsed by Piera art. I almost wept with happiness.

Not many restaurants stood out in our travels around DR but this one definitely did - one of the most stunning lunch locations that I've been to. The service was friendly and the food was very good (we had Thai/ Laotian dishes). Definitely worth seeking this place out.

You have got to visit Monte Azul for the view at sunset...one of the best you can experience in the DR...but the problem is everyone goes there for the sunset so all the diners turn up at the same time and its a small kitchen...in fact Pierre and Vanina run it! To cope they offer a limited menu recited to... More

Hello, the problem about your review is that you didn't read your Check. The foie gras plate Costs 15 $ and not 30 $. Maybe for 2 people, it costs 30 $, but, in all the cases, you have to visit the supermarkets of the Island Who are selling it to understand that IT is a french product, so, imported,... More

This is well worth the effort. Stunning delightful location, the food diverse and delicious and charming hosts from France combine to make this a must. My 3 year old said "I love this restaurant." A rave review!

We came here recommended by locals and tripadvisor. Its a bit difficult to find it and reach it, also if had rained you need to call the owner to pick you up with a SUV down the hill since you can not go with your car. The place is really beautiful and has amazing views to the sea and the... More

One of the best views and best food I experienced while in the Dominican. Just being up there was relaxing in itself. Not to mention that I had undoubtedly the best and prettiest mojito in my travels, and that Pierre and Vanina were both delightful. The Barry White tunes also didn't hurt one bit. A must if you are in... More

Simply the most impressive restaurant location I have ever come across. If that isn't enough, Pierre and Vanina are excellent hosts who prepare a mix of Asian and French dishes. I recommend Pierre's carpacio/tartare of yellowfin tuna, and/or the Lionfish.
