“fun stop for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Front Loop has a couple of features that make it a great stop. First is the location. Beach seating including the option of couches or traditional table and chairs, great views of the kite surfers, and interesting activities set up like a slack line and trampoline means that kids (or adults) are often bouncing around. The fajitas here are not to be missed – so good, so fresh! Great place for lunch, breakfast was pretty good, but paled in comparison to the fajitas. Very relaxed, casual.

“Lunch time specials a bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Try the lunchtime specials , usually two courses for 250$ rds.
This is Greta value but the drinks and coffees can give your wallet a bit of a sting- but the seating is comfortable, it's at the quiet end of the beach and its a great view

“Fun atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This restaurant has a great atmosphere right on the beach behind the Le Reef condos. There is
an infinity pool right by the restaurant and hammocks and comfortable couches to lounge in while you enjoy drinks or food. The prices are very reasonable and they have a good variety of sandwiches, burgers, pasta, and meat dishes.

“Intelligence at work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Front Loop. The Reef condos, the Club. I did not stay a complet week but did spent a couple of nights, and visit the condos, just for the next visit. Superb! If they allow me, I would say, up-the-scale Swiss-made and run. Intelligent design, excellent taste and location, and above all, a personal attention with a genuine sense of quality of service.
The club, the sports activities and the restaurant-café (It is not simply food but real meals and cocking, excellent variety and quality) are of the same brand. I have been there 4 times. The founders- owners are still on the spot day and night, multilingual, always available and serviceable, very well connected to every services and people in the area. Above all, they’ve been able to train and keep enthusiastic a very efficient team, paying attention to details and upgrading themselves all the year long. A surprising professional environment which made my stays and visits always high quality moments. My family and guests have also enjoyed the same satisfaction. Comparing prices, location and quality, the whole spot is now my best choice after probing others facilities in the area. Bravo! I’ll keep coming.

“Coolest location in Cabarete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Besides the Swiz hospitality and the excellent atmosphere, this is a great place to bring the whole family and enjoy the best Cabarete has to offer.
The final tab blew me away, prices are great considering what you are getting.
