“Pizza, pasta, and dorado”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

This is the typical food in Las Terrenas. Make sure you get the dorado with salsa or some type of sauce; otherwise, it's dry. For the price, this restaurant is okay. Service is lacking, and the tables don't have table clothes, but the price reflects that.

“Tasty seafood.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

We all loved our dishes at El Cayuco. The menu offers many options. Our seafood paradilla mix was scrumptious and was everything we were looking for in a seafood combo. Just one thing - just do not like shrimp that is shelled. I hate peeling shrimp!

“Solid food and wonderful casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We came here for lunch as a recommendation from a couple we met at the airport who own a house in Las Terrenas. We figured they must know the best places to dine. It was definitely one of the best meals we had on our 5 day vacay. We both ordered fish and a couple of the tapas to start. Everything was well-cooked and the mojitos were good (not super strong, but tasty). Would definitely return.

“Great food, great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

When you can get mouth watering fresh seafood prepared in traditional fashion, excellent drinks, a fantastic view of the ocean and friendly service for under $60US what more can one ask for?
