“Eat there at least twice a week”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

I am living directly behind El Brasero, so I was very pleased when a really good French restaurant opened up. Even when I'm planning to eat at home, I get side-tracked by one of their specials for the day. Just came from an excellent filet of fish in a fine sauce, so I had to submit my comment as soon as I got home. I now consider the owners to be fine friends, in addition to professional restauranteurs.

“Tried and found ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We tried this restaurant and found the Ceviche to be delicious and absolutely fresh tasting.....would have again in a heartbeat! The main courses were ok-nothing memorable. But the Moelleux au Chocolat was to die for. The atmosphere was fine, but it just seems to be missing something. Would we go back again? Only for the appetizer and dessert, and not for a special evening out. The French Bulldog is a cutie and the owners are friendly and helpful.

“French Home Cooking at its BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Everyone is drawn to the beach for their vacation meals. But you so easy miss this wonderful corner restaurant/neighborhood pub. El Brasero is new in town, it is located beside the Mini-golf, besides the entrance to Hotel/condo Cita Del Sol.

The ambience is friendly, cheerful and inviting. Emma the French Bulldog is the welcoming committee. Fresh herbs grow in the flower beds and orchids between the Mini-golf challenges. It is set far enough back from the main road that the traffic noise is not bothersome. Christophe and his wife are wonderful. She is an amazing cook!

I love the fresh ginger shrimp, the ceviche and their filets. Portions are normal. Price is very reasonable. $ US for a filet with potatoes, a little salad and sauce!

The deserts are limited but divine. The only tiny want is the very small bar selection... Really DO NOT miss.

“great food, different from others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Cabarete is well known for its beach restaurants and bars but i have to tell you this restaurant is worth breaking the "cabarete beach restaurants routine". first of all the restaurant is located on the main street but not directly exposed to the noise of cars and motorbikes passing by. The food is very good, what i like the most is that the menu is different from what is usually seen in cabarete, seafood, meat, dominican food, french cuisine, the moelleux au chocolat is to die for. As for lunch its also very good, easy and FAST.
Highly recomended !
