“Italian food with a Caribbean”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The restaurant is on a side street surrounded by local establishments, walking inside is like stepping into another world. The seating is arranged in a courtyard near and around a pool. The entire space is quite serene and well appointed. The food is excellent. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was brilliant. The chef has done an excellent job incorporating local ingredients into traditional Italian dishes. For example, the caprese salad is served with avocado which compliments the tomato, basil and cheese. The prawns with papaya and mint is delicious and fresh. The pineapple carpaccio with vanilla gelato and honey was a great conclusion to extraordinary meal The owners are very accommodating and will adjust dishes to account for dietary restrictions. The portions are more European than American so if you are looking to gorge yourself you may be better off at another establishment. For the area the restaurant is expensive but worth the price. Don't miss an opportunity to eat at Bliss. Forza Milan

“The good and the bad”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The decor (inside and out) is simply gorgeous- AND CLEAN! The service is also phenomenal. The portions, however, are WAY too small for what they are charging. The food was delicious but just there was hardly any served!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We ate at Bliss the second night of our honeymoon, by recommendation of our hotel. Our hotel made us reservations and set up a taxi. The service was great! The restaurant was on a little street you'd never imagine it was even there. We walked in and there were only 3 other couples/families there the entire time we ate dinner. From wine, salads, dinner, to dessert, everything was perfect. Definitely try to have the dessert "sampler". It was fabulous! I'd recommend going to Bliss for a nice dinner out during your vacation to Cabarete. We were hesitant because it wasn't Dominican food, but it was well worth it!

“Great evening!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Recommended by friends- so glad we went! Owners are very friendly and willing to cater menu for kids.
A little pricey compared with other local restaurants, but it was nice to have a quiet dinner without being hounded by vendors on the beach. Highly recommend!

“Best Dinner in Cabarete”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We were unsure if we should try Bliss because it isnt typical Dominican fare, and we heard that is was pricey. But I am so glad we took a gamble. Bliss was incredible. The best meal we had when we were in the Dominican. & The service was great too.
I highly recommend the tuna. It was a little more cooked than I normally eat, but the flavor was the best I've ever had. Not a single complaint from me!

When our meal was over, the owner was nice enough to call us a taxi back to our hotel. Excellent experience!
