We review the trip advisor for the best restaurants in Cabarete and found that Gordito’s was # 1. As it turns out, it was just a short walk from where we were staying (Millennium). Gordito’s is a small place on the street with outside seating. Locals call it “fast food”. I call it the “best food”. We went there the first afternoon and found a great place to eat and new friends (Deirdre and Joe, the owners). We had fish tacos, guacamole and chips. Our friends had the fish bowl and they loved it. Everything is fresh!!!! Joe has a guy that brings him fresh fish daily which goes good with the cold-cold beer. One day for lunch my bill for two fish tacos, chips two beers came to 415. I gave Deirdre 1000 peso’s. She gave be 600 back and said, “next time”, meaning it’s on me. That might not mean much to some, but in Cabarete, it means a lot. We did come back. Joe is from the US. He has a great story – got tired of the rate race and moved to Cabarete and started Gordito’s. Don’t miss it. Mike

Well it's ok because of the fact that it's the only Texmex in Cabarete, but if you compare it to other Texmex in DR its poor. The taste is just not right, and the service is like going into a mcdonalds, pretty unfriendly, maybe it's because there are no mexicans working there. I have to say its clean and fresh, but not good Texmex. If you want a good Mexican place in DR, go to AGAVE in Sto. Domingo, run by mexicans and great service.

Well, based on the stellar TA reviews, hubby and I plus another couple ventured to Gordito's last week during our stay in Cabarete; OMG. Can we say fish tacos to DIE FOR?! TA travellers once again did not let us down....these tacos are worth all the praise they get! The mahi-mahi in the tacos was so fresh, it had literally just been caught in the ocean and delivered to Gordito's upon our arrival. And I don't know what special sauce they put on there but it just enhanced the flavor of the fish so wonderfully; we were in total heaven. The owner was such a nice guy, too...he spent time chatting with us all and we really enjoyed his company. We were bummed that we waited so late in the trip to check this place out because we wanted to go back again but didn't have time. We would DEFINITELY recommend Gordito's as a go-to eatery on your trip to Cabarete!
