“Best continental restaurant on the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Recently moved a block to a bigger, nicer site. Great sauces, with French and Italian influences, but featuring seafood.

“A special treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Simone, the friendly owner of this attractive restaurant , does a terrific job of combining local ingredients in a creative fashion (shrimp carpaccio with capers and tomatoes in a citrus sauce). As he is Italian, there are delicious pastas which include the classics (tomatoe and basil) as well as past with sea crab presented in its shell which was very tasty and very beautiful. If you have any room for dessert, try his fabulous chocolate dessert. This was a lovely meal. A birthday I will remember. Grazie Simone !!!

“Awesome pasta!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Have only been here once so far, but it was very nice - right across from the beach. Table cloths, place settings, stemware, etc. - a more upscale treatment, yet still outdoors-y and pretty casual. Dedicated bar behind the dining area. Pricing seemed reasonable. Great spot to take visiting friends or guests for a more "refined" style dinner. I would def. go back for the pasta with their tomato sauce. It was really good.

“The type of service and good food that used to be the norm before Las Terrenas became fashionable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Simone is the perfect host, in an elegant setting in the new restaurant he just built. Food was excellent, a "chupito" on the house sealed a lovely evening. Reservations recommended as we did not find a table at our first attempt.

“Good Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We dined at Le Tre Caravelle twice during our visit to Las Terrenas. As vegetarians we found eating in Las Terrenas challenging unless you want to eat Pizza each night. Tre Caravelle had great salads as well as an excellent Spinach Ravioli. The desert selections were fine and the wine list reasonable.
