We had dinner here based on a recommendation. The restaurant is also an art gallery and is located in the Colonial Zone. The empanadas are excellent as an appetizer and the main dishes are great too! Prices are very reasonable as well.

The interior reminds me of an old restaurant in Germany dated 1400s. Except the walls are covered with photos of famous people that ate there and artwork. Service is slow and drinks watered down. Food great.

Great meal, excellent price. The empanadas cannot be beat. The ropa viaja and the Caribbean spiced chicken, perfection. Worth every penny!

The fish in coconut sauce was delicious, as well as the rice and beans that accompanied it. A very atmospheric place. The prices are higher than some restaurants, but if you come from the US or Europe they are not too out of line.

The food was poor and the price was high. We were told it was a good place to try traditional food but it was very bland.

This is the truly bohemian spot in the city, with a bunch of interesting people. The dominican food is excellent here, with the touch of a home made food. My favorites: rice and beans, creole fish, cativías de bacalo and dulce de coco.

We ate here after arriving late from our flight. They didn't mind us sharing a course. Their English was good and they had an English menu. The meal was reasonably priced and patrons were coming in to eat well after us
