“The charcoal smell will trap you”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Nice place, clean and good friendly service. Price was good and food awesome. the smell of fresh fish and roasted chicken or pork on charcoal will charm you miles and miles away. great experience to leave the resort and interact with the local life. You will not regret.

“Beware of the cats”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Decent food - service not so much

Had a cat come jump on my table and start licking my plate. Called the waitress and the fellow who looks like the owner and appallingly just took my plate away giving the cat a pat on the back. Not even and apology!

If you are lucky you'll walk away with a good meal, but given the lack of options in Las Galeras don't expect much. Worst service experience... and yes I am factoring in banks and mobile phone companies

“Wonderful food & atmosphere”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Very nice, open-air restaurant on the main street of Las Galeras, very close to the beach. Frequented by "expats" from a variety of European and Latin American countries. Good food, good service, a little more expensive than nearby restaurants, but worth it.

They served appetizers and drinks only. The mixed plate was not good. I give the food 4/10. Atmosphere was 7/10
