I was brought here by a friend who lives since 8 years in Santo Domingo. The restaurant is located overlooking la plaza de Espana with the Alcazar de Colon, which creates specially at night a fantastic atmosphere. We had a table full of very tasty tapas and good drinks for a reasonable price. The Colonial Zone of SD is nowhere... More

Sitting outside in lovely 70's F air with the lit Alcazar de Colon in front of you when at home it is in the 20's already gets you into the right mood. But to get good, interesting food at what is clearly a touristy place is even better. We had several of the tapas including the gazpacho and the Husband... More

Enjoyed dinner here with friends visiting. Lovely tapas and beautiful presentation. Dessert of a deconstructed tiramisu served in a coffee pot was delicious. Especially liked the tapas tacos!! Well informed wait staff took very good care of us.

Went to Plaza Espana to pick a restaurant and happened upon Pura Tasca. Concept is Spanish tapas but they also have full dinner offerings. Pleasantly surprised by excellent service, a great view of Christmas festivities in the plaza and reasonably priced, remarkably good food. Ask for the ceviche....some of the best I've ever had! Buen provecho!

A tapas style restaurant, the food was good, and the view great. We were there for sunset as well. Price was mid-range.

Good place for a snack and a drink after visiting museo de casa reales. Great choice of sangria and tapas. Taxes not included in prices and also better to pay in pesos than dollars.

i'm not sure what all the fuss is regarding this place's food-i'd categorize it as average bar food. it is a nice setting on the plaza. i felt like the waiter was trying to push drinks a little too aggressively. outdoor, if it's not too hot, has a lot more personality than indoor seating.
