Dined here in early March and although the staff are really friendly the food was not what we expected based on previous reviews. The prawns were rubbery and did not taste fresh. Ditto the mani mani. Really disappointing overall.
We chose this restaurant based on reviews on trip advisor, which were mostly excellent. The reviews wasn't wrong, we had a nice and warm welcome from the owner, and staff was nice also. Very clean and modern toilets, furniture and atmosphere were nice also. Even...though almost everything seemed good, the only minus was food itself. I had a burger, and it was a bit of disappointment. The patty was bad quality beef.
My girlfriend ordered tenderloin well done, but it was medium (not that big deal though). The menu was broad and probably the other more expensive steaks are better.More
Friend and I were looking for a place to eat. el Lugar came out on google. We gave it a shot! Immediately greeted by the Owner, super friendly! Beba our waitress, I have no words. She was so sweet, drinks and apps on the house!...She was so sweet, and nice. The food was outstanding!!! Unbelievable service. Need to come back here again!More
El lugar is a very nice restaurant in Las terrenas.The service is excellent and you are always feeling truly welcomed.The food is great and cocktails and wines are in high standard.Recommended if you are looking for a really superb dinner experience👍
So glad we found this place when searching online for somewhere to have a nice dinner during our time in Las Terrenas! We absolutely had the best time at El Lugar! The food and service were phenomenal! There were 8 of us and all were...pleased. From the moment we walked in, the atmosphere was excellent, we were greeted by Bruno and his wonderful staff, and complimentary apps were placed on our table! It got even better from there. We had meat and fish and everything was cooked perfectly. I had the dorado filet al coco and the flavors were beyond anything I could have imagined. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and our amazing waitress brought out a desert with a sparkling candle and we all sang. The night ended with complimentary special shots for everyone at the table with Bruno and our wonderful waitress, with Bruno adding fresh whip cream to each shot. You just cannot find better food or service ANYWHERE. Also, the prices are totally reasonable.More
El Lugar was our best restaurant experience not only in Las Terranas, but in the whole Dominican Republic.
The restaurant has superb location by the beach, with great ambience and music. The staff was not only attentive, but also helpful and very personable. Drinks were...fabulous and all food, from canapes, through appetizers, mains and desserts were hugely enjoyable. Price, for the quality delivered, was very reasonable.
Even though we seldom come back to the same place, as we like exploring new venues, we happily decided to go back and dined there again.
If you stay in Las Terranas, El Lugar should definitely be on your checklist.More
We were in las Terrenas during off peak season so we had the place entirely to ourselves. Decor was very nice and the food even better. I believe it’s know for it’s steaks but the seafood was delicious. We also got the Jamón salad with...watermelon, mint, & Manchego– a very good combo–and a few apps. They also brought us out some free O rings so maybe skip one of your appetizers. Overall a great dinner but on the pricier side for the area. Also very good cocktails.More
