“Breath Taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

This was a return visit. New owner since Jan 2012. View as spectacular as ever. Due to its remoteness, call the day before for lunch or dinner to ensure there will be food. Food was delicious, but a little expensive: $15-$18 for shrimp crepes, grilled red snapper (mero), sautéed shrimp, etc. New owners charge 150 pesos/person for pickup.

“Nice breakfast and stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Highly recommend this place! Make a table reservation in advance as they are really fully booked for dinners. We ended up going there for a breakfast, but it was really delicious as well.

“The Best Place! Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The bumpy road to El Cabito is well worth it for the exceptional view, great meal and friendly hosts! Make sure to try the carpaccio which is to die for as well as the best mojitos in Las Galeras! Get there early to enjoy the sunset and explore the rocky surroundings (good shoes recommended). You might even witness a brave jump off the cliff to complement the lazy time in the hammock. Overall the greatest one of a kind experience in the Dominican Republic! Thank you Lea and Ivan!
