“Great restaurant saona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Great food and lovely people in the Saona bar /restaurant. we had a fantastic lobster meal twice. It made a nice change from the hotel food at La Romana Dreams which is just a short walk along the beach. The owner usually arranges and pays for your transport home and Sebastian dropped us back to our hotel the second time we had a meal there. Thanks to sebastian and his wife and staff for adding that extra nice touch to our holiday.The banana flambé is best pudding out of this world.

“I love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I live in Bayahibe, and treat myself to a meal from Saona Café as much as possible! I absolutely love it, Not only does it do great food, the staff are very attentive and friendly, and Sebastian and MJ who run the place are such nice people!
They have just updated the menu so it is EVEN better now! But my firm favorite is the henhouse burger (fried chicken) and the fries are to die for, I am sure they use a secret ingredient to make them taste so good!
I took some friends who were visiting me from my native England and one of my friends said the Saona burger (hamburger) was the best burger he had ever had! (and people from England eat a lot of burgers!)
If you are visiting Bayahibe, Saona Café has got to be on your wish list - you wont regret it!
