This used to be our favorite happy hour place and then we often had dinner afterwards. The sun sets behind the mountains here and the scenery is spectacular. However, management has changed.

Right next to Casa Marina Beach Resort, this restaurant overlooks the new beach that nature has created over the past decade or so years. Lovely view across to Puerto Plata and Mount Isabel de Torres. Love to sit with a Santo Libre and watch the sun go down.

The location of this restaurant is perfect to watch the sun set and enjoy the beach front. I had good service. Food is decent...pricing is excellent (in comparison to NYC). I would recommend.

Food was ok and definitely at tourist prices, but great spot. Perfect for having a drink and watching the sunset!

We stopped in to escape the ran for lunch. The service was great even though only one waiter spoke English and the food was delicious.

The location is great but that's all I can say about it. The food was just okay at best and the prices were a little steep. We had a family of 8 and three of us got mahi mahi and three got red snapper and after they smothered it in this brown gravy stuff (it was supposed to be creole)... More

Over the past six years, my wife and I have visited this establishment many times - I can never say that the food was more than average. Yet it's location, views of the Bay, parking area etc. should portend a GREAT establishment - yet, in our view, it has always missed the mark! (Management/Ownership??)

Stunning sunset view. Come around 5-6pm and you get the lovely sunset. I tasted all the food in their menu and I loved it. If you are on a budget, get the grilled chicken, includes sides of potatoes, rice or veggies. I recommend this restaurant.

We went here because we wanted to watch the sun set and enjoy a meal. The food was average. I had a seafood combination which was good. My husband had a steak and he said it was OK. The service was good and the beer was very cold, which was nice.
