“A western restaurant in the DR”

We recently returned to Santiago for a training conference. We had eaten at this restaurant a few months ago Nd wanted to take the rest of our team to this wonderful restaurant. It was very nice and the food was good and great service.

“Great Location, good food and drink, good price”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I really enjoyed my meal here. The location eight across the street from the monument on a nice evening in Santiago can't be beat. We both really liked our food and the Presidente was ice cold. A really enjoyable experience at a very reasonable price. I would definitely return.

“cheesey cowboy theme, but good steaks”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Kukara Makara cowboy theme extends to having the staff (even the poor guy out front waving in diners) wear cowboy costumes, "western" furniture and lots of pictures of John Wayne.
The food; however, is very good.
Toasted casaba bread and dip is a nice change from tortilla chips & salsa. The steaks are tender and properly cooked, the appetizers are delicious and large enough for a meal (the melted mushrooms were two huge tomatos stuffed with mushrooms in an herb cream sauce with melted cheese) and the finisshing espresso was very good.
The prices were reasonable and the service was prompt and efficient.
I can't comment on their large number of salads or the sushi bar, but it is an above average place for steak.
