It is hard to describe Doug and Marguerite's beautiful, spacious and artistically decorated home. It is at the end a slightly bumpy road, about a 30 minute drive past Cabarete on the way to Moca, part way up the mountain. Watch for the sign on your right as you drive on the road to Moca.
Arrive before sunset and watch the sun sink over the mountains as you have a drink by the pool.
Doug is a gourmet cook and has been written up in Bon a Petit and Gourmet also over the years. The food is French and Caribbean influenced. Wonderful ! You will be seated in an area in the dining/serving rooms. Any spot is excellent. Call ahead to make reservations and let them know if you have any dietary issues. Doug will easily accommodate you. I have brought friends here over the years and they all rave about it.Don't miss this dining experience if you are on the North Cast of the Dominican Republic !!

Went with a group and it was a great evening out. Food was amazing and scenery was just as amazing. It's amazing how quiet it is in the mountains especially after spending most of your time on the ocean.

The Castle Club is an experience you will not soon forget! In order to dine in this hilltop home/restaurant you must pre-arrange the date and time ( and number of diners) with the owners. This is not a walk-in type of establishment! The food and dining experience is outstanding! You can spend time on the decks enjoying the breathtaking views and have a pre-dinner drink. The family pets (dogs) roam the place freely and will come to welcome you to the Castle Club. Food is created by the chef and served by his wife. It is masterfully created with local, fresh vegetables and herbs and the flavours meld into a gourmet tasting extravaganza! I cannot wait until my next visit to Cabarete and my next glorious meal at the Castle Club!!

I came with a large group (over 15) and I adored The Castle Club. Doug and Marguerite were delightful, very kind and amazing cooks. The views were breathtaking, maybe one of the beautiful things I have ever seen. The beautiful french looking castle overlooked the towering hills of the Dominican Republic. The castle was elegant on the lower floor with a large pool and completely open walls and the upper floor was very unfinished which complemented the house and made it so unique. The food was amazing, with four full courses that were each delicious. This castle is very good for every occasion and even young children if they are somewhat mature. I could not have asked for a better way to spend my night in the D. R.

We happened upon Castle Club completely by chance. Our cab driver made the reservation for us so we had no idea where we were going. Such a wonderful surprise!

The views from the castle are absolutely breathtaking- in every direction! Marguerite and Doug were such kind, inviting hosts and they immediately made us feel at home. Wine in hand, we explored the house and grounds before being served our appetizers.

For dinner we had grouper in lobster sauce with rice pilaf. We cook frequently and we tend to be harsh critics, and everything was cooked to perfection. By far the most memorable, delicious meal we have had on our vacation. The ambiance was perfect- we were there as a family of six (parents and 4 young adults).

This was the highlight of our weeklong trip. We enjoyed great company in an incredible home. This is a must do if you are in Cabarete, we will remember it always! Thanks so much Marguerite and Doug!
