“SERENITY at the Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Don't miss the Fresh Crab prepared by Isabelle - the French owner. Great food and service. You are right on the most serene beach you can imagine. The drinks are cold with lots of ice. This is a place that I would go again every time I visit!!!!

“Amazing, start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had a table right next to the beach and had the most amazing service. The langoustine entree was outstanding as were the appetizers. Rudy and Marino were great servers. The view of the beach is incredible. Highly recommend.

“We just felt so comfortable here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

As soon as you step through the door away from the busy road at the heart of Las Terrenas you enter a completely different world at Paco Cababa. Life works at a different pace here, and as soon as French ex-pat Isabelle welcomes you to her restaurant you know it is instinctively right. For those that find Spanish a challenge it is also good to know that Isabelle is also fluent in English, which is not the case in many places locally.
We returned twice in a week (almost unheard of as we love to try different places) but the menu here is extensive, particularly if you like seafood. Like us a number of the local dogs also seem to have found a second home here; they too lapping up the ambience.
Each night we dined on the edge of the beach, listening to the waves and watching beautiful sunsets, and once a spectacular lightning storm in the distance over the sea.
But the main reason to come is the quality of the food, top of the list we think being the mixed plate of grilled fish/seafood.

“Top notch food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Three visits over the last three months and still urging to go back once more.

Good service
Truly great seafood (never bothered to try other options, but they're there as well)

Each time they've had different dishes for today's special, and they've turned out to be really good meals.

In short: of you're looking for a meal to be a nice experience, exciting tastes and talk and drink. This is a great option in Las Terrenas.
