The food is delicious and the view is amazing. Perfect for couples looking for a romantic evening. There are simple seeping accommodations available if you decide to stay for breakfast :)

“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you go to Las Galeras please take the time to go to El Cabito. Not only was the atmosphere and food amazing, but Leah went above and beyond to make sure our 20 month old was okay. One of the best restaurant experiences my wife and I have had. This is a special place!

“Overrated”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This place is unbelievably overrated. Sure, the location is breathtaking, and the whole setup is very special. But that's where it all ends, unfortunately.
We didn't really feel very welcome there, since we were barely welcomed by the owners upon our arrival there. No smiles, just a very cold inquiry if we had a reservation.
The biggest disappointment was the food. Carpaccio was one of the worst I've ever had, with very thick slices and no imagination. The fish was charred and really dry. Even mojitos were below expectation. I'd rather not even talk about the veggie dish. And we really don't need a lot to be satisfied.
We felt sorry for the young French waiter, who was very confident about the quality of the restaurant, describing it as the best restaurant in DR, and who's beliefs we must have challenged by simply being frank.
Hint: if you crave good food, go to Playa Rincon and order a freshly caught papagayo fish.
