Let's be honest, not the most beautiful restaurant. But it's on the beach and the sushis are delicious. You have to try the Godzilla Roll!! A bite hard to find, it's in the kite beach resort. We will return for sure !

This restaurant was handy being on the beach within close walking distance of many of the rentals there. It was recommended but we found the food salty (didn't matter what we ate) and the portion sizes small for the price. The servers were friendly but...spent a lot of time visiting with each other and on the phone. This would not be my first choice another time.More

Mesa Taina was our on site beach restaurant during our 6 weeks stay here on Kite Beach. With covid, curfew and lazy no cooking days, Mesa Taina satisfied our family’s needs, We love fish & sushi and since fresh fish was hard to come by,...we loved the fresh grilled Mahi-Mahi, their fajitas and Godzilla sushi. Definitely expensive for DR but beggars cannot be choosy and since they are always open with curfews etc, we happily ate here often. Food always taste good and fresh. Nice and hardworking wait staffs and owner.More

You can tell when the dish comes out that the chef knows what he/she is doing. Presentation is beautiful and so much flavour. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone. Professional staff and great food. I would recommend this place to anyone.

70 minutes to get a tired burger with uncooked fries. Everything was somehow less than mediocre. I would understand a bit more if they were crowded. So many better places in Cabarete.

La Mesa Tiana was a really good dinner place to go to. Our family absolutely loved it and enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to go again the second time to try out new food. The restaurant makes really good sushi and excellent ceviche. It’s...a quiet place right next to a clean white beach and even has a bar. If our family was to go there again, we would! Wonderful job, people working at La Mesa Tiana. Written by AdelineMore

We loved this place when we were in Cabarate. We stayed at an apartment close by and went to Mesa Tania for almost every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner)... and drinks, of course (from coconuts to mojitos, everything is so yummy). The farm to table...concept and great people (who even changed the music to reggaeton at our request was just the cherry on the icing!) We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting cabarete. A true gem on the beach.More

There is nowhere better to eat that we have found in Cabarete, and especially Kite Beach. The setting is perfect - right on the beach, adjacent to the best kite school in Cabarete ,Gokite Cabarete - and the food is truly excellent. We have been...to Cabarete twice this year, and both times, we have eaten almost every meal at Mesa Taina. Their fish tacos are perfect anytime of day, and their Cabonara and Bolognese are as good as I have had in Italy for 3x the price!! The menu is large and eclectic with fresh sushi every day, and always good local fish (the Dorado or Mahi is super tasty!.)More

We stayed eXtreme Hotel which is on the same property. The sushi here is outstanding. The burgers and pasta always good. They have added a sushi bar and a some tables for bigger parties, this is great for the retresters. My one and only complaint...is, for some reason (and I am positive it is a male decision) they painted the cute tables and chairs to poop brown, they used to be a gorgeous beachy blue. No idea why they did it, but it darkens the place and it loses Yeh cool vibe.More

We eat here a few times per week and always look forward to seeing our favorite waiter, Angel. The food is fresh from the farm or the ocean. My favorite is the Godzilla roll made by Raul, and my girlfriend's favorite is the Carbonara. Presidente...is always cold and the view is amazing.More
