“Grea place for the adults while checking the kids at play!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We love going there. Eating a Pinchos Morunos or Pan Tomaca with some beers while the kids are playing in the carousell..

Good time for all the family.

I also love the Sancocho there!! For people who wants to try the most traditional dominican dish, this is the place!!

“Odd and Peculiar Place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We had breakfast .... it came with rolls and toast ... too many carbs for me. And a little pricey.

“Monday night 2 for 1 tapas - a very bad experience.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

I went to the Garum restaurant at Plaza San Juan a few weeks ago with some friends as we had decided to finally try their 2 for 1 tapas special. The setting and atmosphere at the plaza is pretty nice (although not as nice as the Palma Real plaza) and as we did not know what the food was like, we decided to order one of everything on the menu.
The staff was very friendly and service was good. They did not have a good wine selection and wines were over-priced.
The tapas was not good. Most of it was just bland and boring. Their cerviche was the worst I have ever tried. It tasted like someone had dropped a jar of salt on top of it.
When we got the bill they had charged us all wrong and charged us more than what we were supposed to pay. It was supposed to be 2 for 1 but they did not seem to understand how that applied to their billing. So we had to argue over the bill before we could leave.
We were all still pretty hungry and decided to go across the street to another restaurant where we ended up having a nice dinner. The Garum restaurant is not a place that I will return to anytime soon.
