El Cabito gets the very good rating mostly because of its incredible setting atop a cliff. It is definitely off the beaten path, although their website has excellent directions to find it. While the website describes how to get there using public transportation, I can't imagine going without a private car. It's a long way down rough roads, farther than... More

I think these three adjectives are the most convenient to describe this place. In the middle of nothing, you can find this little space full of calm, and enjoy the amazing views of the caribbean with the best mojito and relax music. You can go with your friends, your couple or alone, because it is sure you will find someone... More

Stopped by for drinks and to check out the view by taxi. The beer was cold, Mojito was yummy and the view was amazing. You must try and visit to see this cool structure. We were staying at the Grand Paradise. You would not want to walk there. Driving was bad enough, as you go up a steep unmaintained hill.... More

El Cabito is a wonderful place, and the view from the small balcony of the cabana is spectacular. Overlooking the bay and a sky full of stars at night...just nature, nothing which disturbs the piece. The sad thing is that the cabana was not particularly clean - there was still waste from other people in the room. The "shower" had... More

I will keep it short and sweet. Amazing food, great hosts, a view like no other. You have to jump off the cliff and stay the night. Hammocks, treehouse, cabins. If don't venture to stay overnight, call ahead and book a lovely sunset dinner. You will only regret not going, going will change your perspective of the northern DR coast.

I am a backpacker and rarely feel so inspired by a hostel to write a review online, but as I sit here overlooking the bay and watching this sunset, preparing for a starry night watered down with delicious Dominican-rum Cuba Libres, I truly feel compelled to let others know how exceptional this place is. The restaurant is famous (and by... More

The view...Incredible view with the waves breaking down the cliff below the restaurant. I had an great meal, great drinks with a simply amazing bonus; whales breaching the water and jumping some 500m away! Wow!

After reading reviews we expected something fancier but were very happy with the amazing spot. great views and dramatic crashing of waves through blow holes. We had grilled shrimp which was delicious. Clientele was an interesting mix of hikers, campers, and others just looking for an interesting dining experience. It's a unique place well worth the trip.

If you’re in Las Galeras you must visit El Cabito!! Located on a cliff it’s the most beautifully located restaurant and the food is excellent. If your lucky you may even see people jump from the cliff....
