Excellent food and friendly environment. The staff is fun and inviting and the food is delicious. Spent several evenings here during a recent visit to Juan Dolio beach area. The manager, Theresa, is a fantastic and fun hostess. Great food, wonderful drinks and even karioke nights outside. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you El Sueno.

After swimming in cristall waters at the Juan Dolio beach we had lunch in el Sueño. Grilled lobster was delicious, shrimps a la creolla very tasty, accompanied by a cold el Presidente. Nice lunch experience!

Ask for Santiago. The best waiter. Food was fresh. The coldest beers in the area. And if it's not in the menu, they will make it. Good Italian food. The Pizza was awesome.

The worst and most expensive pizza I had in Dominican Republic. The cheese on top of the pizza was too greasy.

This a good restaurant across the street from the beach in Old Juan Dolio. Parking is hard if you come by car at a busy beach time. Good food and service.

Loud. Very loud. Tables each trying to talk over the other. Not at all relaxing. Greasy pizza. Mediocre service. Won't be back.
