This restaurant should be on YOUR MUST DO LIST. My hubby made us a reservation from Canada a few weeks before we arrived in Dom. Rep. Thomas got back to us the same day and booked a date with him. When we walked in we were greeted by Thomas, we were seated a wonderful table with a stunning flower arrangement.... More

I rarely rate restaurants because very few impress me. I've been to fancy restaurants all over and I can tell you, this restaurant is something you'll remember, you won't be disappointed! I promise. At first I was sceptical trying food away from where we were staying and because I am a very fussy eater, I'm glad I took a chance.... More

We visited Thomas twice during our 2 week stay following reading the great reviews on this site. It is safe to say that we were not disappointed, the food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. Thomas was extremely welcoming and the Steak is second to none! Well worth a visit if you get a chance.

The restaurant is like dining indoors and out doors in one. Thomas the owner chief looks after you and his food is great. On my many trips to DR i always try to go there. You will not be disappointed

Great steak and chicken. Part of the all inclusive at the hotel but you need to make a reservation in advance. One of the better restaurants at the resort.

This is a great restaurant. A jungle like outdoor setting. Very clean. Thomas, the owner, is the waiter, cook and barkeep. Went there twice during our 3 month DR stay. Was our favorite of all the restaurants we visited. Food is outstanding. Had steak both times. Be sure to reserve because some nights are very busy. Great German beer! Have... More
