This used to be one of our go to places to grab a quiet lunch or a nice more expensive dinner out. Over the last year they raised the prices (alot! ) and lowered the quality to the point we never go there anymore. Too bad as the view and location were always pleasant.

This restaurant was one of our favourites and going back this year it was not the same at all.... The pumpkin soup however, is still amazing. The bruschetta is also quite good but our entrees were all pretty bad. The lasagna sauce tasted of ketchup and the Thai pork chop, which was previously amazing, tasted like peanut butter, and ONLY...

Went for dinner just finished eating garbage. Would not recommend it to anyone! If you have to go there just have a drink and enjoy the view. The kitchen is just terrible

overall this was a good dining experience. The food was all good - we just had soups, appetizers, and salads. We all enjoyed the meal - it was not overly expensive. The service was pretty good (by Dominican standards). cool setting.

The restaurant "Al Porto" offers various and delicious dishes of Italian and international cuisine. Two kiosks on the sides of the infinity pool create an ideal atmosphere for a romantic dinner for two or a small family celebration. The pool opens the perfect view of the ocean.
Close to the restaurant you can find an old stranded pirates' boat. A merry child's birthday party could be organized here. On both sides near the boat there are tables under the roof. A big swimming pool, restaurant and beaches are also good components for having a good time!
We would be happy to organize an event for you - celebrating birthday, children's party, or wedding. Our restaurant, pavilions and beaches could be an ideal place for these events. Feel free to contact us and we will do the best we can!
