This is one of the must go restaurants on the Cabarete area, basically for the "Camarones or Langostinos a la Papi"....fresh local seafood with a delicious special house recipe, made with Pernod.
The place is always packed even though the other restaurants are available........tables on the sand and always a mix of international and local people
In my opinion the only "spot" on this place are the tables and chairs,,,,plastic and worn.....no need to be so hippy......when you deliver such a great worldwide known dish....
If you are a little picky.....you will suffer......

We had dinner at La Casita de Papu while on vacation during the Holidays. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The staff, very pleasant and the location just absolutely beautiful. It was a very busy night, as to be expected, but worth the wait.

If you come to Cabarete you cannot leave without trying the langoustine a la Papi at La casita de Papi. This without question the best seafood found. The owner is very friendly and will make sure you get a table, you likely have to wait because it is always packed, but it is worth the wait...

Food in Papi is very good and therefore it's very busy every evening. That doesn't however justify the rude and impassive service. I wouldn't even try to go back anymore.

Delicious langostines a la papi.
after dinner make sure you check out the highly efficient little kitchen where they manage to prepare high volume of this delicious dish for all the tables as it's the most busy restaurant in town by far. Fun to see how they manage to prepare the food on a few square meters next to the alley.
Dont miss this restaurant. Reserve as its always full!
