we stayed in Cabarete for 3 weeks and LAX was our favorite, pizza and pasta are fantastic, the nachos perfectly fresh, you have to try their mojito, service was very friendly, sometimes it took them a litte bit but the place was always crowded, so we had no problem with that, music for sure best in town, every night a...

The place is nice for happy hours, listening to music, hanging out with friends. They have a Dj a few nights a weeks, the ambiance is great. I ate at LAX many time on previous trips. The food is good, they offer nice choices of thin crust pizzas and Thai Night on Wednesday is a nice. The only thing is... More

Settled on LAX after walking around the different beach restaurants in Cabaret Beach; the pizza was tasteless; the waitress did not return our change which was unreal since the tip was included in the check; and someone from the restaurant decided to wet the sand as we ate which was so rude; also, the constant harassment by the beach trinket...

I had read a few bad reviews on Lax but decided to try it anyway. It was very good! The pizza is the best we had on our two week trip. The lemon chicken with rice was a hit for me and my teenage daughter and so was the Thai chicken on Wed Thai night. Price is good and it`s... More

The wait for drinks was at a snails pace! Food was okay & drinks were average at best! Trying to track down someone to order after 30 min on sitting there with empty drinks!! Mini pizzas were tasty but don't go there if your expecting to be treated with good, quick service!!! Be nice if they didn't walk by me... More

After our bill came the waitress fessed up saying there was now a third partner and that they were doing everything on the cheap. Food was a disaster, most items returned except the lemon shrimp and lasagne. Pizza just horrible. Drinks even worse, Long island iced tea, (ordered 6 of them) all sent back. Stick with a beer and shot... More

Food wasn`t good, but not bad either. Plus for their location and happy hours on both tapas and drinks! ;) Cozy place to sit down for some drinks or a pizza, but not a place I would go for dinner. Easily recognizable by the red decorations that theme the place!

I have been going to lax since I got to island when I first got here I thought it is amazing. I love the fact their chairs are free on the beach however 70% of their beach chairs are broken or ripped, which it sucks being stuck in one. I do however love their happy hour, because otherwise the prices... More

Good beach bars make you think of retiring. Great ones make you actually retire. LAX - bar tipo cool - is the kind of place you dream of discovering on your first trip to the Caribbean.This club,located in the center of the famous surfing town Cabarete, attracts a laid-back, music-loving, athletic crowd in cushioned sofas.The overall red decor is warm and lounge-like, the happy hour is generous, the drinks are strong and plentiful, a big plate of fresh nachos, tapas or a crunchy italian style pizza make it an unforgetable experience. This big, open- air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 1 p.m. with happy DJs from all over the world. As the day winds down, you can grab a drink from the well stocked bar and watch the waves roll in against the sunset.
