This restaurant is on the edge of old town Santo Domingo but well worth the very few extra steps to get here. (And it was only a block away from our historic district hotel.) It's "old style" decor is an excellent complement to the historic...More

This place is in a quieter area, only 2 blocks from the hustle and bustle of the center of the colonial district in Santo Domingo. There are 2 floors, with the top floor is better suited for larger parties. The art on the walls is...More

Highly recommended by locals and featured on Anthony Bordains show it didn't disappoint. The food was good and the decor fascinating. Pictures of celebrities, presidents, famous singers who visited adorn the walls. Will certainly return next year.

Firstly, the one waiter couldn’t handle the two tables in the upper area at the same time, so it took ages for us to receive the menu and then order something. Once ordered, the food came pretty fast. Unfortunately, the filet steak which I had...More

We stumbled across this gem while wandering side streets in colonial Santo Domingo. The atmosphere was wonderful, elegant and peaceful with nice music and tasteful decor. The menu was varied, prices were reasonable, service was excellent, and the food was tasty, well prepare and presented....More

We come here every year for their empanadas - normally we order 2 of each (beef, cheese, chicken, Bacalao). They are made with yucca or maiZ flour instead of regular flour and are mouth-watering good. This year we came with our baby and they are...More
