I really went in June 2011, as the month of June doesn't appear on the page I choose the month of October. The restaurant was excellent, with a nice view and very friendly people. I liked everything.

Don Pepe Restaurant was recommended by Dominican colleagues, and they were right - it's one of the best restaurants we visited while we were working in Santo Domingo. The menu is extensive - fresh seafood and an outstanding selection of roasts - the wine list is excellent and the service is some of the best. Yes, it is expensive, particularly by Dominican standards. Our meal for two included shared appetizer, shared Cesar salad (made the old way by rubbing the wooden salad bowl with garlic, mixing the dressing right in the bowl and tossing the Romaine there, too) two entrees, two glasses of wine, two desserts and coffee and was about US$130. Price aside, the servings were so large that we could have easily shared our main course. Do not miss the Cesar or the roast lamb - heavenly. The restaurant is not located on the water or in a scenic setting, but makes up for it with their outstanding food display from which you can choose your fresh seafood.

Great food, wine, service and atmosphere. We sat down and enjoyed great conversation at our table while amazing food arrived, our wine glasses were filled and service was barely noticed. We started with some fantastic serrano ham and manchego cheese and I finished with my first centolla crab. Wow. A truly great meal, I will most certainly be coming back.

to expensive, and no atmosphere, very stiff, the food is Spanish fonda in the wrong decor. The service is good and the price is to high.

What an amazing dinner. Very elegant from the waiter dressed in tuxedo like attire, to a magnificent wine room in full displayed, to a mouth watering jam hanging just like in Spain amount other items in display, the decor elegant and inviting. The personnel is trained on serving well without being overbearing. It is an upscale restaurant so it has a price to match it, but I would return again when in the city and savor each morsel of food they serve. Outstanding!
