An eclectic cuisines characterize by fusions of local and Spanish dishes. Recently opened and outdoor terrace with a unique wood fire exterior kitchen, from where chefs interact with clients.

A nice place to go for a fine dinner. Great value and comfort. Delicious food. The service was good and not far from the Colonial Zone.

Very nice restaurant in a cave. A must see when you visit Santo Domingo. In addition it serves good food and has an excellent brunch on sundays. Both for couples and family. I have visited the restaurant for brunch, lunch and dinner. All were very good. I even had a company dinner there.

Loved this unique restaurant. So many choices where to sit in all the cave's nooks with the wall art, or the outside patio with the plants. We had a big party and everyone looked their dishes from the fish to the meat. Service was good. This was my favorite dining experience during my time in SD.

Meson de la Cava is a good restaurant, but you'll be too busy admiring this one in a million restaurant built around a real Taino natives cave. Highly recommend if you're looking for something different.
