I held a small gathering for about 20 people in their Petit Salon and it worked out perfectly. All the dishes were perfect for sharing and above all delicious. We took advantage of the American Express Happy Hour (50% the bill from 6-8PM) and it was excellent. The service, the setting, the food and the ambience were perfect. Kudos to... More

Lulu is a must go to to destination. I have been there many times and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is perfect for a casual business meeting or if you're there with a friend for a few drinks and some great food. There is a courtyard that's beautiful. They have two separate bars, one in the courtyard and one... More

What we thought would be a light meal turned into a full blown dinner as we ordered one fantastic set of tapas after another. The boquerones were first rate as were the cheeses, meatballs, and cured meats. This is first and foremost a wine bar, with superb Spanish wines dominating. If you are in the Zona Colonial and want a... More

Hi NotRealHoosiers, Thanks so much for writing this review!! The best part of coming to our Restaurant is ordering many dishes and trying each one of them! The experience with our Delish Tapas is really good. I think you might be a bit confused, we are a Tasting Bar, with a Wine Store next door, but it's too different business,... More

Went here with coworkers for a drink & bite after work and, that's exactly what we found! Good selection of tapas which were not only very tasty but, they were served beautifully. Desserts were great too. My favorite was the pistachio creme brulle! They have a wine cellar where you could select and buy a whole bottle of wine to... More

Lulu is a nice place for locals and foreigners. The decoration is bohemian and elegant, with amazing "tapas". This is not a place to have dinner because the portion of the tapas are very small. It is quite expensive so this not a place for a low budget.

We went to this restaurant with another couple. The ambience is lovely and the patio is also beautiful. The food are service however were not good. We ordered a few tapas to share but the portions were tiny. The service was also terrible. We ended up starving and with a huge bill. We wont be back.

Larissa L, Public Relations Manager at Lulu Tasting Bar, responded to this review

Hi Tara! Thanks for writing this review! For us it's very important what our clients think. We have a Tasting Menu, which means the portions are bite size or tapas, the idea of this is that everyone takes one or two plates and everyone can try it, it's more like a share thing, than to have a complete meal. Greetings, More

It is a tapas restaurant with an incredible atmosphere, now both inside and outside area in the heart of the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo. Service is good, selection is good (though they use tablets and its still a bit awkward). It is however a bit pricey.

Hi Granmio Thanks so much for writing this review! The reason why we use tablets it's because we change our menu often, and it's easier if it's digital. Hope to have you back soon, More

I absolutely hate leaving a bad review. But the food yesterday was bad. First, I was told there was no tasting menu (even though it was on their social media). Then, I was told only a tapas menu. I ordered a beef carpaccio and it was completely tasteless - like paper. I couldn't believe it. And then the bread order... More

Hi Writer01 Thanks for writing this review, we take this kind of comments very seriusly in order to keep improving, I think there was some kind of misunderstanding since our menu has only tapas, as our name says, we are a Tasting Bar, But we have an special offer called "Tasting Tuesdays" that it's all you can eat for only...

We love this place. Great atmosphere, you can sit inside with air conditioning our outside in the colonial zone. We'd go more often if the drinks were a little more affordable.

Hi Urban W! Thanks for your comment, it's true we have different areas that you can use to enjoy your time there, regarding the drinks it might be more affordable to buy a bottle at Cava Billini (The winestore next door) and pay the uncorking fee. Hope to have you back soon, More
