“The BEST Vietnamese and Thai food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten at many places In Cabarete and were thrilled to hear that a world class Thai and Vietnamese food restaurant had opened. The Pad Thai was better than I have had anywhere and the spring rolls and summer rolls were fantastic. all the food was very fresh and delicious. And the service was great - very friendly and tried very hard to please. Even the kids loved it and they are finicky eaters. Highly recommend VietCafe.

Nice and relaxed restaurant. Definitely recommend the papaya salad and roasted pork with noodles. Owner was really nice and spent some time chatting with us!

“A hidden gem in La Punta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

We had dinner at the Viet Cafe twice with family and friends, once in December and once in January. The restaurant is located where the former Toma La Luna restaurant was -- next to El Velero Resort on the east side of Cabarete, known as La Punta. Very nicely decorated restaurant with outdoor seating under a huge thatch roof by a pool, and very nice soft background music.

The dinner menu has an offering of five or six Vietnamese dishes as well as some five Thai dishes. I tried Thai both times while other members of the group tried Vietnamese.

We were very pleased with the food and impeccable services by Dominican waiters. Prompt service, perfect English, and a yet-to-be seen in Cabarete, full understanding of the menu and what each dish ingredients were.

Prices are moderate at around $7-8 per dinner dish. A group of six, we paid about $15 per person including alcoholic drinks, a couple of desserts, taxes and tip.

The Viet Cafe flyer shows lunch is served from 11:00am to 2:30pm, and dinner from 6:00pm to 10:30pm. Closed on Sundays.
