We read the reviews and thought we would give it a shot. We visited the DR in mid August (off season), so it was pretty slow. In fact we were the only ones in the restraunt that night. Thomas (owner), had all of his staff on leave in preparation for the start of school on the island, but his service didnt miss a beat. My wife and parents loved it. We even stuck around to drink schnapps with the Thomas before heading back to our villa. We are returning to the DR next month and this spot is guaranteed to be our first stop.
