Great Island Bar scene. Huka available. Live music at night. Food is decent and service is good by DR standards. A bit pricier, but worth the money in my view.

Excellent flavors, especially the home made pepper sauce! Servings a bit small .. location a bit loud, but they make up for it with interesting, original interior design

The most disgusting filth coming out of the speakers. Every single word was a curse word and it was barely 8pm. Families with children got up and left. Older people were disgusted. When the DJ was requested to change it he just cranked it up...even more. If this is their brand of customer service I would suggest people avoid it. I wouldn’t even walk by it. Disgusting.More

Good food. A bit expensive but at 2:00am you cant ask much. Service was good and fast. Burritos were delicious and so their hot pink sauce.

As it was lunchtime we didn’t see any problems. It was busy and noisy and fun, we wanted to see a real local place and hoped this would be it. It was, it was fun and the hot pepper sauce was worth the walk. Friendly...waitstaff, nice time.More

I'm not sure if my experience was just a fluke, but it was underwhelming to say the least. I will preface by saying, I did not see the previous reviews regards drugs or assault until after I got there and ordered food. I did not...feel unsafe at any time. I visited on a Saturday afternoon for lunch by myself. It was almost empty. Aside from a few staff sitting down on their phones or behind the bar, it was about 4-5 customers dining. All of them seemed to be tourists. Perhaps, afternoons are their slowest time but it was pretty dead. Wacamole is an outdoor restaurant with beautifully colored walls and artwork. Its also spacious with some areas featuring plush chairs and TVs. Upon entering, I was immediately greeted and seated. The menu features an extensive selection of Mexican dishes. I decided to start my meal with an order of fresh guacamole and tortilla chips. I hate to say this, but the guacamole was terrible. It had way too much lime in it, so it tasted sour. In addition, the texture was somewhat watery. I'm not sure if it was because of the pico de gallo inside or the lime, but it was not tasty at all and I did not finish it as a result. For my main entree, I had wanted a chicken burrito but they did not have chicken that day. That was rather peculiar since chicken is such a common protein. The next best option for me was beef. The burrito featured strips of beef with bell peppers and cheese, along with a side of pico de gallo and the sour guacamole. I also asked for a side of crema. It was ok. The beef was prepared well but overall, there was nothing spectacular about it and I've had better elsewhere. I did not bother asking for an alternate dish because it wasn't necessary. To top off my meal, I had a soft drink (nothing alcoholic). Service was good, no complaints. My waitress was kind and attentive while other staff greeted me kindly. Overall, the food was mediocre and service was good however, the vibe was dull. The overall experience wasn't enough for me to want to return or recommend to others. Be mindful if you decide to go.More

The food was just ok, and the portions small especially for the price. The service was slow and the restaurant was empty. There are many better options! This may be one of those places that caters to locals but does not like tourists.

Wacamole was just ok for the prices. As a vegetarian, I thought I'd have decent options at a Mexican restaurant. I got the chilaquiles (very dry and plain - I live in San Diego so I know what chilaquiles are supposed to be like) and...a passion fruit mojito (overly sweet) and paid USD 25 for the two items. The decor is cool but the food is meh.More

Decent food but they add on a bunch of extra gratuities on the bill. They did have karaoke and a DJ for music. Mainly went here for the atmosphere.

When we first arrived there was only one other guest seated in a large outdoor restaurant while most people were eating at the place next door. Our waiter was nice and attentive but we were waiting for long periods of time while the waiters stood...around (which is fine because there wasn’t really anyone there). I’m general, the food was really good. The tinga chicken was amazing and the barbacoa was also a highlight. Generally fun experience with some really good tacos.More

The worst place close to the place where we live. Going from bad to worst. You have it all here - loud music, questionable alcohol and bad food - I had kind of food poisoning a couple times after eating there. It was an average...restaurant before where one could have a drink or two. That’s over. No more - tons of restaurants around to choose from.More

The place was slow. Sat down and ordered a drink and a menu was dropped off. Finished my beer and after 20 mins of waiting no one asked if I wanted to order or have another beer. There was 11 people in total sitting down...and more then 5 staff on that I could count , that didn’t include anyone that may if been out back.More

No fun, food was normal, not good nor bad, the global review was at best misleading, disappointed, not cheap either at the end they add up a lot of taxes and you end up with a 40euro dinner with 2 drinks, just like in europe.
