The location is great but that's all I can say about it. The food was just okay at best and the prices were a little steep. We had a family of 8 and three of us got mahi mahi and three got red snapper and after they smothered it in this brown gravy stuff (it was supposed to be creole)... More

Over the past six years, my wife and I have visited this establishment many times - I can never say that the food was more than average. Yet it's location, views of the Bay, parking area etc. should portend a GREAT establishment - yet, in our view, it has always missed the mark! (Management/Ownership??)

Great hidden restaurant, perfect to finish your night at either Sosua or Cabarete, excellent service, if you have a sweet tooth ask for the Crepes Suzette, delicious!!

Stunning sunset view. Come around 5-6pm and you get the lovely sunset. I tasted all the food in their menu and I loved it. If you are on a budget, get the grilled chicken, includes sides of potatoes, rice or veggies. I recommend this restaurant.

We went here because we wanted to watch the sun set and enjoy a meal. The food was average. I had a seafood combination which was good. My husband had a steak and he said it was OK. The service was good and the beer was very cold, which was nice.

I make it a point to go to this restaurant, several times, when I am in Sosua. The food is fresh and absolutely wonderful. The awesome view of the ocean makes this a very relaxing place to be.

The best of this restaurant it is near Alicia beach (a wonderful beach in Sosua).The food was good, a little bit expensive (it seems food in Sosua restaurants is not cheap)

We went twice during our trip. One meal was excellent, second time was average. A full varied menu with salads, seafood, steak, chicken, pasta, pork, you name it! A little overpriced. There is a covered dining section and large patio dining. Friendly and fast service. Open for lunch and dinner. Very lovely in the evening overlooking the ocean.
