“Popular With Expats”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The small restaurant is on Pedro Clisante, the main street, in between several others. The food is good and plentiful and there are few meals that cost as much as $10. The Canadian owners, Ray and Sue, are hands on owners and at least one always there to keep their eye on what is happening. Their employees have been with them for a long time and are very friendly. The menu is varied and includes the regular offerings as well as fish and chips and shepherd's pie.

The tables are in an open-air area and there are only a few. However, there are options inside if they are occupied.

The restaurant has a local following, which benefits it during times when tourism is slow.

“Coffee and Hockey anyone!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Locals call this home! Trivia on Thursdays at 2pm for local charities, Olympic Hockey, and soccer and other sports, really good food(try the Dominican lunch for 150 pesos). Lots of food for a fair price, and coffee aint bad either....try it all the Canadians love it!

“food still good,but”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

we went the britannia on our easter visit to sosua,as usual the food was good,i enjoy the fish and fresh cut chips ,however the service was extremely slow( i did notice this as well on my visit
there on st patricks weekend 17th march this year).
With only one other table to serve we had to wait a very long time for our starters and after the starters arrived the waitress came back right away with our main course and we had to sit and watch as our main course got cold.
I did question the long wait and also that our main course would get cold but they do not seem to undertand and it was even explained in spainish to the waitress.
The owners do not seem to be around any more but were hands on when they took over the place,so i,m afraid due to the long wait i will not visit here again

Thanks for taking the time to post a review, although it's not the review we like to read.

First we would like to apologize for the long wait you had to endure. It seems that you were satisfied with your food once it came out. The wait always depends on what you order, all our food is made fresh, nothing is bought frozen including our soups. We try to get the orders out as quickly as possible, but some food need more time. Nobody wants to eat raw pork or cold french fries. Our food quality is number one in Sosua and we run our restaurant to North American Standards.

As far as us not being hands on.....I think working 90 hours a week is plenty, yes we do take a few hours off each day and if we are not in the restaurant we are usually running erands.

Again, sorry for your experience, but please drop in again and I'd be glad to personally take your order and make sure all goes right.

“Friendly with good fish and chips”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Went a few times, a couple just for drinks once to eat. Friendly staff, good fish and chips (being English was craving them). Free Internet. Different sports on TV. Street vendors stop by your table if you sit by the street.
