We had two lunches here, and found the selections and food to be very good. Very attentive staff. You can sit inside and still experience the action in the Parque de Colon.

Located at one of the corners of Colon´s Park and in front of the Cathedral in old Santo Domingo. I went for breakfast and tried some typical food dishes of Santo Domingo, for example Mangu with fried cheese or Mangu with scrambled eggs. It is a restaurant from 1960, so furnishings and local are from that period. Interesting visit. It´s... More

We sat and enjoyed coffee and drinks at this location. I think it would be a great place to stay if you had a room with balcony facing Parque Colon.and El Conde street.

I don't know why, but pretty much every restaurant in Santo Domingo is terrible! The food is often greasy, bland, undercooked, slow to arrive, and containing ingredients that were not listed on the menu. I wish we had eaten dinner there the first night; we would not have wasted so much time looking around for other places and ending up... More

Spent a lot of time eating and drinking Presidente Beer during our week in Santo Domingo. Have to rate this Very Good, but on a Dominican Republic standard! Getting a table outside can be a bit tricky, but the owners try and find you somewhere to sit. We ate breakfasts and simple evening meals here, all cooked well and terrific... More

Looking for a place to have lunch after Mass at the Cathedral we found outside seating at this restaurant at the Hotel Conde. Great and friendly service with some great seafood dishes and traditional Dominican chicken and rice plates. The best part was the people watching from the musicians to the tourists to the taxi drivers. Could have sat there... More

We usually only eat at a place one time to try new places but ended up eating here twice because the chicken a la parilla was so good and such a great value. Comes with a side for 245 pesos plus tax. For two of these meals and a beer our bill with taxes was less than $20 USD. Huge... More

Of course the location is spectacular, with the square and the cathedral overwhelming you, street musicians and people watching, but the food and drink also made us smile. The avocado-salad was really fresh and tasty, but we needed to ask for the vinaigrette to make it come avlive. The goat stew in tomato sauce was lovely, tender and very good.... More
