Not only was the food amazing, it was a beautiful place to stay as well. The owners are wonderful people who are welcoming and definitely go the extra mile. I cant wait to go back for another visit.

“Nice for a change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Good food, drinks, and people. Long drive though. Beware (if its been raining) of mosquitos. They do private parties which can be nice.

Excellent two day stay over the weekend , great food ,very relaxing ,Kids loved the pool .
Food and accommodation first class .
Excellent Indian curries, complementary Indian dishes served on banana leaves while seated on cushions, and to be eaten with your fingers or with a knife and fork .

If you want to get away from the City life, then this is the place to go .

“Exotic, nice and relaxing Indian style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

The Blue Moon restaurant at first sounds a bit cheesy, but as soon as you arrive you will notice that this is something else. The whole place is ripe with a relaxing atmosphere, lying on a hilltop around 40 minutes drive from Cabarete. There is a pool and a palm tree next to it, but the focus is immediately turned towards the dining "room". Here there are only cushions around the walls and banana leafs laid out in front of them. You just understand that this is gonna be R&R maximum. And truly enough, after an aperetif in the bar, one is invited into the dining "room" and very nice Indian food is served. It may sound undelicious, but one eats with ones hands, but this actually works very nice. The place has a very hygienic appearance, just visit the bathroom and you'll see what I mean. The food is served in small bowls and you put it on the banana leafs, its actually very delicate. AND, you get all the information you need (to eat in a proper fashion, WITH YOU HANDS). After the meal tea can be served, something I strongly recommend. This is a very nice experience, and was in our case arranged by Vela restaurant in Cabarete (transport and everything by Phillip Kulik). It was not particularly expensive either. Enjoy!

“Indian food in the mountains!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The beach and all it offers is amazing but if you visit Cabarete you really must make the effort to visit the Blue Moon. It has an almost legendary status in the region and has been producing amazing east Indian dinners for more than a decade. This is a place to come in the early evening for a sundowner enjoying the spectacular views of the ocean in the distance. Eneyda who owns and runs the place is one of the most charming people you could ever hope to meet. The meal is taken sitting on cushions on the floor, served on banana leaves and eaten in the traditional Indian style with your hand. All the dishes are explained in detail by Eneyda which adds to the experience. All in all a hidden gem in the mountains around a 20 minute drive from town. Ideal for special occasions but by prior booking only, minimum 6 people.
