I had the chivo guisado (goat curry) with a side of plantains and cassava. The meat was tender and tasty in a mild but spicy sauce, served with rice and beans. The fried cassava was fresh and delicious, excellent for dipping in the sauce. The plantains were crisp and warm, but a tad too salty. The servings were incredibly generous, I had to take almost half of the food home in a doggy bag. Very good value for money.

The waitress was welcoming, friendly and helpful. We didn't have dessert, but the black coffee was both good and on the house.

Caribe is not very centrally located, but well worth a visit. Easily accessible by bus no 31 and tram no 17.

Since moving back home from the Dominican Republic to Oslo a bit more then 4 years ago we have been looking for a bar/restaurant offering Dominican cuisine or at least Caribbean food. We have found it!
My wife and I went there yesterday to try it out and were pleasantly surprised!
We ordered a nice cold Presidente Beer while checking out the menu. We placed our orders. To our surprise we were served a very nice chicken soup as a starter on the house. We ordered Pollo guisado and Chivo guisado accompanied by rice (Arroz con moro), tostones (with salsa picante) and ensalada verde. The food was well prepared, presented and served Dominican style with fresh ingredients and spices. The meat was tender and juicy just like in the DR. The service was very friendly and quick. The portions were large and inviting. We both felt we got value for our money (even though we are in Norway)
I spoke to the owner and told her that we really enjoyed the food and the service. She cooks using the recipes and techniques she was thought by her mother and grandmother. In other words real home cooked food. All in all a very nice experience that brought us back to our beloved Quisqueya (The Dominican Republic) for a couple of hours. We'll be back for sure!
