“Great service, great food, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The food here is well prepared and arrived quickly, but they do not expect New York prices. The food was excellent with reasonable portions and, perhaps most importantly the service was reasonably quick. I went to this restaurant three times while I was in Cabarete, the second time to see if the first was a fluke (it wasn't) and third because, well, they deserved my business.
I usually eat vegetarian and that often means compromise because restaurants focus their efforts on the meat dishes, and the veggies come out as a flavorless soggy afterthought. Not here. I had a veggie wrap and a side of -you guessed it: veggies- and the side was the centerpiece of the meal. Cooked to keep some crunch and delicately added flavor- I'm not sure what- to make it interesting.

“Great service, clean and inviting atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The Front Loop Cafe & Grill was our first restaurant that we went too in Cabarete. We actually chose the restaurant because we used their restroom facilities which were refreshingly clean. That being our first impression...we felt confident that the entire facility would be the same. My husband had a filet mignon...which was tender and cooked to perfection. I enjoyed fajita's, while my daughter raved about the stir fryed vegetables. The environment was friendly and welcoming. The pool beside our table was a bit of a mystery...but I am sure I would have seen the benefit if we had attended during the evening when Cabarete comes alive. We will be back to Cabarete in December 2013 and we will be returning to the Front Loop Cafe & Grill!

“The Front loop has it all.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Great service, incredible view and really good food. Whether you go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just for some drinks and people watching; it is always a relaxing and incredibly enjoyable experience. We love the vegetable soup (I ate it almost daily for lunch). Everything is so fresh it just makes you feel good to be there. Another favorite of ours are the fajitas and the best margaritas that go with everything! The owners Caroline and Alain and the staff are friendly and helpful and always have a smile. You can just sit back and listen to the music, watch the volleyball on the beach or tune in to the many comings and goings of the windsurfers and kite boarders. We go to Cabarete a couple of times a year and this is definetly one of our favorite places for the "Los Gordo's" group to hang out and chill while we are there.

“Good food at good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

All day breakfast. Waffles, eggs, etc. Good service and immediately next to Palm Beach Condos. We went there a lot. They also have great evening specials like all you can eat BBQ for 750 pesos ($20 CDN). Family owned and very friendly.
