Two weeks ago our family went to Papillon to have dinner. It was not easy to get there because the deskclerk and later on the taxidriver tried to talk us in to go to some other place . Luckily we did not listen to them and trusted the reviews on Tripadvisor. After being greeted by Thomas we were seated and ordered our drinks, Pina colada and three german beers, whow! The best pina colada out of this world. Not compareable with the ones we got in the hotel.
Now we ordered the food , 2 lobstertails and 2 peppersteak. It took a while for Thomas to cook everything and when it came to the table I didn`t trust my eyes, it was monstersize tails , cooked to perfection and luckily my sons helped me to finish it up even they had trouble to finish their steaks.
After a little while my husband insisted to try the chocolat mousse and after trying it I thought that I am in heaven.

A real culinarian highlight !
Next trip we will be back for more of thomas`cooking and the beautiful ambience of this place.

We dined at Le Papillon while in the Domincan in April this year. The food was the best meal we had eaten all week. Enjoyed the owner/chef, Thomas and his amazing food. Only wish we had eaten there more than once. Prices were extremely reasonable.

This our third time visiting Costambar and we always dine a few times at Le Papillon. Thomas is a delight and the food reflects his care and flair. This is one restaurant that is not to missed when you are in the vicinity. Fresh food and generous portions served with a side of Elvis.

It is quite difficult to find an extraordinary restaurant in Puerto Plata.
This by a German chief runned restaurant is really worthwhile visiting,
International cusine at reasonable prices.
