I went to this restaurant with my husband and we are confident that the nexus representative at the resort, Frank, had some sort of business affiliation with the restaurant. It was heavily promoted during our resort introduction/ briefing however highly undelivered when we went there. We also saw nexus staff counting money and balancing books... seemed a little bit strange... More

To celebrate our last evening in Puerto Plata, we went off resort for dinner. I found Le Petit Francois on TripAdvisor & on the recommendation from the reception staff at our resort, decided to give it a try. When we pulled into the complex where the restaurant is located, my husband and I were apprehensive as the area is unfinished... More

Pro: The restaurant is in a great location near the ocean, and you can hear the waves during dinner, which is beautiful. The food was delicious; I ordered the conch salad and my main was grouper with a coconut sauce, which was very tasty, I’d order both again. We sat upstairs on the balcony with a table of 5. Con:...

Barb had surf and turf (1lb lobster and steak) and I had fish grilled with shrimp on top and a creamy sauce. Also a salad and mashed. all cooked to perfection and well presented. Great selection of international red and white... More

The food itself is tasty, I enjoyed Surf and Turf, my hubster had fish. It was much better than the offerings at our resort.... More

Because of the influx of all-inclusive resorts in Playa Dorada, it's probably pretty tough to own a restaurant. I mean, who would pay for food that they've technically already bought through their hotel package. But, I ate a Le Petit Francois tonight and was blown away. I was blown away by the ambiance, by the service and by the food.... More
