This place has such a high rating but was nothing special at all. A little bit more expensive than other places but not a big difference. Very quiet/almost boring atmosphere

Dear Inspira84, Thank you for mentioning that discerning diners consistently give us high marks and also thoroughly enjoy our casually elegant, calm beach dining atmosphere. Sincerely Papi

I have tried a simple pasta in the place and the sauce was not good (too much garlic). Anyway, the service in the place was fine and the location in the beach is amazing.

Dear Mattia, Thank you for dining with us. Taste is a very personal thing. What some think is too much garlic, others think there should be more. Very happy you enjoyed the service and location. Sincerely Papi

Had a lovely lunch on our first day in Cabarete. Portions were a good size. Grilled langostines and shrimp were tasty and fresh. Atmosphere / great for lunch.

It seems very nice place. I've heard it's good meal, but I had to go from the restaurant. People were discorteus. It seems like nobody is hearing you when you request information. The supervisor gives you answers in a very impolite and rude way.More
