“No one needs this review, everyone knows this place is beast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

If you want quality "fast-food" this is your only option in Cabarete. In fact, if you want quick food, this might be your only option on the island. Their produce is fresh. The owners are professional, the staff is stock-full of local beach-bums. The clientele is all of the coolest expats in town. Get the frequent flyer card and get your 10th visit free. =)

“Must go!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Joe and Deidra were amazing and so were the food and prices. My husband and I along with our son and 5 of his high school grads ate here almost every day! Can't beat the value and the taste but best of all was the warm welcome given by Deidra and Joe. Thanks for helping us feed this crew, you made it fun, safe and affordable to eat out on the town!

“Outstanding food in Cabarete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you are in Cabarete and need to eat, this is where to go. The fish tacos, in particular, are excellent. Get them with hot sauce ("picante") and mango, and you will have the best food in Cabarete. Several of the fancier restaurant/lounges on the bay make fish tacos, but they are not even close to Gordito's in terms of quality or price.

Gordito's uses ingredients and produce that is simple and fresh. The prices are very reasonable, which means that it is not just for tourists. It is clear that the proprietors have very high standards in terms of food-handling and sanitary practices, which is also a plus. The service is quick and pleasant!

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Decent fish tacos - not large or flavorful, but decent with a good price. However, there is a good selection of options and good local ingredients.
