Restaurants with lobsters

We are going to GBP El Portillo in May and we would like to know where to eat lobsters. Any information would be very much appreciated (I believe the hotel doesn´t have it...)

You might find them scarce as there is now a ban on "fishing" lobsters till the end of May.

Take an excursion to Playa Rincon and you will find them available at the restaurants there for sure.

Wife and I had a lobster dinner at Playa Rincon a few years back, it was one of the highlights of all our trips to the DR so far.

Cristina - Almost 90% of the lobsters you will eat in resorts on DR are imported and deepfrozen... It's the only way for them to have it... GBP El Portillo have them in the buffet once a week for dinner.

To have one of the 10% real Dominican lobster, the best place, like others said, is at Playa Rincon. Go by cab or in a an excursion.

thank you,

although I must say I find it strange that people are visiting a foreign country and enjoying home food. I believe french restaurants or french fries and burgers can be very nice but I would prefer local food and tastes... unfortunatly I'm not finding much choices, besides that 'Luis Restaurant' ... which looks like a very simple but trusty and genuine place for good seafood, near by and besides Rincon of course (althought I'm still afraid of traveling diseases :s).
