“TRULY OUTSTANDING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Arrived about thirty minutes late for a 7 o'clock reservation due to "Murphys Law".

Greeted by staff at the door as if we were on time. Very impressed at the personal treatment and escorted to a table on the terrace close to the grill. Wonderful evening, light breeze and not too hot. Road close by wasn't as distracting as I thought, provided somewhat eclectic atmosphere to the evening similar to a european street cafe but still had privacy on the elevated terrace.

STARTERS:
A bottle of Merlot to get underway followed by shrimp cocktail for me and Atlantic Shrimp for my companion along with some bruschetta with a wonderful fresh tomato type salsa that complimented the warm Garlic perfectly. I loved the shrimp cocktail sauce! Consistency of mayonaisse yet had a wonderful flavor-not the usual ketchup and tabasco sauce.

ENTREE
Had the "local"churrassco with a side of french fried potatos for me and my companion had a grilled pork. The churrasco, although a thin cut was filling and a good portion and I was hungry! Very nice flavor, cooked to medium as requested. Really a delightful choice. Companion enjoyed her choice as well and reported being impressed.

DESSERT
Companion and I had to sit for a bit before ordering dessert we were that impressed with the meal! Relaxing conversation with a bit more wine as attentive staff removed the course and allowed us to enjoy the evening at our own pace. Finally ordered a vanilla ice cream with Frutas for companion and "Tres leche cake" for me along with a cup of Dominican coffee. Very well presented, tasted companions dessert and was delicious,not a typical scoop of ice cream with flavored syrup. My dessert was truly phenomanal!! I tried to make it last as long as possible but it was difficult!!

Truly great ending to a wonderful meal.

In closing I must say the establishment far exceeded my expectations. Staff was very attentive,courteous and personable. The food was delicious, filling and an event to savor. I will be back in the future and highly reccomend.

NOTE: Informed by manager that the owner of the land the restaurant is on is planning a plaza on the location and that they will be relocating in the near future. They will announce when and new location via thier website and Facebook.

“Best Meal of my Life, Hands Down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We are the other couple who traveled with Amber P (review below ours), and WOW - WOW - WOW. There is nothing much more that can be said. We left the resort to visit this restaurant, and boy are we glad we did. I would implore anyone to take the leap, hop in a cab and visit this place PRONTO. The food was amazingly prepared with the best flavor. From the chicken to the pork, ribs, shrimp, grouper - everything was cooked PERFECTLY. Also, surprisingly, best french onion soup I've had in my life. Owner was on premises and assisted with taking orders (english speaking). It was such a pleasant experience...one of the best parts of our trip.

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We came here with another couple at the resort we were staying at. I had read about this restaurant through reviews and can I say please go before the restaurant isn't there anymore. It was the BEST meal we had during out entire vacation. And for what we paid? For the quality and service? Probably would have had to pay a small fortune for the same experience in the states! It was YUM YUM YUM! To cook the food across the board all perfectly? To the intended temperature? My sincerest compliments to the chef. It was sublime. A trip to the DR without eating here would've been incomplete and not as satisfying. Period. I am a foodie and I can not rave enough about this restaurant.

“Eat the ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

All dishes really great, and good value. You must try it! Ribs just fall off the bone and so tasty. Steak you can cut with a spoon. Told to go here by the lads from Orion (Bahia Maimon)

“Great Food and a Warm Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Booked this restaurant after reading the reviews before we went on holiday. We were not disappointed, we had lobster and prawns to start and their famous steaks with side orders to follow. The food was fantastic .Try the yucca or cassava the waitress recommend we try it. We loved it .It was my husband’s birthday and as we were about to leave the staff surprised us with a huge slice if the most beautiful cake I have ever eaten. Thank you for a great meal. Highly recommend a visit here for great food and a warm welcome.
