My husband and I have made this place one of our favorite to go. We go solo or invite some friends. They have a combination of GREEK food with a touch of local flavoring. The ambiance makes the trip to the Colonial Zone worth it. You are inside a colonial house, without a ceiling. So you look up and see the stars.

I am living in Santo Domingo for over a year now, and passed tenth of times in front of this place. Everytime I was very attracted by the nice atmosphere, but eventually forgot to visit the Falafel.

Today, I finally went and have to express regret not to have had visited this place earlier. It is one of the most beautiful hang-outs in Santo Domingo. The terrasse is very inviting, divers, full of greenery and playful; there is definitely a space for everyone and every need.

The menu is simple but the Libanese-style food very attractive and tasty, drinks are many, and the service is recommendable. In my opinion, the quality-price ratio is superior to a lot of places in the Zona Colonial.

Aside of sitting directly at the seaside, this is probably the most relaxing place to spend some time either alone or in good company. I am very impressed and you will definitely find me there quite often.

Cheers.

Love coming here for a Falafel or Shwarma Sandwich and a few drinks. The owner Isac is a great host. This is a real locals hang out for young adults. Sometimes they have live music or other activities.
