My husband had a shot of espresso and I had the cucumber mint mojito. Both were great! They have a large variety of specialty cocktails and shots.

This use to be a place we visited weekly for drinks and appetizers. But since there is new ownership it is LOUD, 1,500rd minimum on credit cards, no splitting the checks and a rude manager. We gave them 2 different chances and the second time...was 10x worse than the first. If only they kept it the same as it was before. They would be thriving still. But they are going downhill very quickly....More

Perfect place to celebrate and have fun. Great tasty cocktails, nice music and friendly staff. Our group had few rounds of drinks and enjoyed the night there. Nathalie, the manager, was really helpful and even offered us a ride home when it was too late...to get a taxi. We will never forget the drive, all together packed in a small white van, driving around the small roads of Bayahibe and Dominicus. We laughed so much. Thanks again for the wonderful night!More

A late review but we visited last April of 2019 for supper and a few drinks and it was good. We all had different items from full on dinner meals like the lion fish to basic appetizers. Drinks were Caesar’s, to beer to mojitos to...water and everything was decent. Staff worked hard, some not too friendly but that’s ok. We enjoyed sitting and taking in the view and letting life pass us by. We found maybe it was a tad pricey but that is expected when you are near the marina and in a busy corner. We will come again for sure, probably not for a full on meal, just drinks and appies. Also live the music played there too, nice touch! Lovely little spot!More

The service here was great - we had a club house sandwich and a fish dinner, both were excellent. The prices were reasonable and the beer was cold. What more can you ask for.

We stopped here for a drink on a walk from our resort. The bartender had a hard time understanding my husband's order of a rum & coke/cuba libre, but I ordered a cocktail off the menu, and it was delicious and served in a huge...glass! The people-watching in this area is great. Definitely worth stopping in!More

My husband and I were staying at Casa del Campos and wanted to get off the beaten path. After diving off Bayahibe - we decided to hit this gem of a place. The drinks were fabulous - loved the Gin Spritz in particular. The Dorado...(Mahi) was super fresh - we watched the fishermen bring Dorado in after our dives that day. During dinner - from our perfect vantage point looking over the water - we watched games of egg tossing competitions on the beach - starting with the younger kids moving up to some future baseball stars for sure among the teenagers. But best of all was meeting the owner Sebastian - so fun for my husband - an investment banker - to meet up with another investment banker who cast away the financial markets to run a restaurant in the Caribbean. Sebastian shared his secret batch of aged Mamajuana with us - and it was amazing!! The view was spectacular as was the Sangria. After heading over to watch more island festivities and a big band up on stage - we came back for some more of that Sangria. It was truly a night in paradise. Highly recommended!More

Our favorite and repeat place to eat. Fabulous juices. Excellent food. If you've always wanted to try Lion Fish this is the place. We had it twice. The Pear & Shrimp salad is wonderful. The calamares were done perfectly (most places over cook them). Had...their cauliflower for lunch and it was amazing. I will crave the food from this place long after I'm back home. Had to wait for food in early afternoon after dive boats came in and there was a crowd ... but worth every minute of the wait.More
