“Incredible Beachside Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is a hidden gem; nestled on a quiet street in Dominicus. From the outside it looks like a normal restaurant, nothing special really. We walked past it several times without giving it a second thought. The signs around town (Dominicus) made us curious, so we finally walked up and asked the security guard standing outside about it. He allowed us to to walk inside and "take a peak".

There is a $500 Dominican Peso (about $12USD) "entrance fee". Fee, you ask? Well, for the use of the facility. The cost of the meal is extra. The "peak" we got was beautiful. The restaurant is really a destination. When you first walk in there's a lovely boutique to your left. You then walk through a beautiful "lobby" living room- like area. Beyond that there is a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by plenty of lounge chairs & umbrellas. That was all we saw, but we were sold and decided to come back the next day to spend the day poolside and have some lunch.

It was the best decision we made. The restaurant has an awesome view of the ocean. What we didn't see from our "peak" the day prior was the ocean. WOW!!!!! This destination is right on the water, though there is no water access. The restaurant sits above the water and is surrounded by rocks. But don't let that scare you! They have 2 incredibly beautiful salt water pools among the sand and lounge chairs and umbrellas. you don't see this from the street or even from the pool. You walk beyond that (the "lobby") and the actual restaurant is on your right. There is covered dining and outside seating.

The service is excellent. Once we were settled poolside, a waitress immediately came to get our drink order. The actual restaurant has a lovely diverse menu (leaning towards Italian). We had drinks while in the pool then ordered lunch and sat on the patio. After lunch we headed to the beach and relaxed in the lounge chairs & also made use of the salt-water pools.

Really, this is a must see. They are open for lunch and dinner. We visited twice for lunch and made a day out if it both times. Very romantic for a couple, not really a family place. Both times we were there, we had the pool to ourselves.

A must see. We will be back. Highly recommend!!!

“Super romantic setting in front of the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Very good food. Try to reserve a tent right in front of the sea for an spectacular sunset dining. Both good food and setting come with a high cost, so have your wallet prepared!

“A must if you are in the Dominican Republic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

What an unexpected surprise! Recommended by friends we had good expectations. However the setting, atmosphere, attention, services, all is much more than what arrived expecting!

The food is excellent. We tried pasta, seafood and steak among the 5 of us and it was all superb. A must if you are in the island!

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Loved everything about this place, great place, food and service!! The view is breathtaking the minute that you walk into it. The address here needs to be corrected since it is on the Dominicus/Bayahibe area.
