Description: Good beach bars make you think of retiring. Great ones make you actually retire. LAX - bar tipo cool - is the kind of place you dream of discovering on your first trip to the Caribbean.This club,located in the center of the famous surfing town Cabarete, attracts a laid-back, music-loving, athletic crowd in cushioned sofas.The overall red decor is warm and lounge-like, the happy hour is generous, the drinks are strong and plentiful, a big plate of fresh nachos, tapas or a crunchy italian style pizza make it an unforgetable experience. This big, open- air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 1 p.m. with happy DJs from all over the world. As the day winds down, you can grab a drink from the well stocked bar and watch the waves roll in against the sunset.

Everyday except Saturday they have happy hours 12Noon-2PM and 5PM-7PM with cheap drinks and food. The food is really good and drinks are made with real fruits. We ate here several times and they provide some of the most value on the beach.

LAX is a fun bar, that we've visited multiple times for drinks. There is a particular bartender that we seek out because he makes a great, strong drink. We even spent part of New Year's eve here, very fun.
However, LAX fell short when we tried to dine there yesterday. We went in for a lite bite (pizza) in addition to drinks, and I must say were very disappointed with the experience. First, we were forced to move tables when a larger party arrived. Then, after I ordered the pizza, waited over an hour without any food arriving.
Finally, when I caught the attention of our waitress to inquire about the status of our long awaited food, was told that there was no more pizza available. Why they couldn't have told us this sooner I don't know. The waitress did offer a free drink to make up for the inconvenience, which helped a bit, until I saw a pizza being delivered to the table behind us - to a large group that arrived after we did and couldn't have placed the order before ours!
Based on this experience, I would recommend LAX as a place for drinks only - not for food, especially when there are less than 6 in your party. Larger parties seemed to trump smaller parties here.

We came just to have after dinner drinks and people watch. There's uncha-uncha music by a DJ (not what we expected for 9PM on a weeknight, but...), but the service was fast and friendly and the drinks priced like anywhere else on the beach (so they weren't using the DJ as a ruse to jack up prices). We didn't eat, but the food looked great and the portions (plank-like pizzas, platters of nachos, huge bowls of salad) were enormous! They have lots of deals throughout the day, so it would be a great spot to chill out in the beanbags or piles of cushions (or just at a regular table on the beach) and relax.

The ambience was amazing, it was right on the beach with plush cushions. The staff were friendly and got us free french fries(on the house) because our order was delayed! Great atmosphere and value for food!

We went to Lax for a light meal of salads as we were saving ourselves for Christmas dinner later on in the evening. The Caprese was yummy, but our son was disappointed with his Caesar salad as it was just a regular salad with caesar dressing on the side. The other salad was just a regular salad which was what was ordered. The Sangria was delicious and totally enjoyed while sitting on the beach. Service was friendly and prompt.
