This place was by far my favorite place to eat in the Las Galeras area of the Dominican Republic Samana Region. I so enjoyed my first visit that I came back several weeks later to stay the night in the Tree House. The amazing cliff side dining experience is made even more adventurous if you choose to dive off 40+... More

We had a fantastic dinner at sunset and ordered the El Captain fish grilled. Great view, lovely meal! Suggest that you arrange taxi if eating at sunset and not staying on site or adjacent.

The food and service here are easily among the the best in Las Galeras. The menu is a mix of classical Spanish and Dominican cuisine with some of the best fresh seafood you will find in the area. Add in a view that is absolutely stunning, and you have the perfect restaurant for a romantic dinner with your better half.... More

We hiked from Las Galeras and we're delighted that it was well worth the travel along the beautiful coast line to end up with this fantastic spot of nature. We enjoyed fresh tropical drinks and calamari and most of all the natural setting overlooking the ocean.

Not an easy road to get there but once you arrive at this lovely romantic restaurant overlooking the ocean,it feels like you're in paradise! Go early to see the sunset and enjoy a perfect dinner in a romantic scenery!

The food was simply terrible. Overcooked whole fish, four grilled squids without any taste. Same overcooked vegetables to all dishes. The restaurant seems to be complacent as the location drives demand. If we ever come again it will be for a drink and to watch the sunset and the boca del Diablo.

Is Very Expensive and Don't Take Credit Card. The Food is Verry Limited and Not so Good. I love the view (stunning), the animals (they have a goat who thinks she is a Dog), and also, you can Jump to Open Sea) I recommended for snack and drink with you couple and friends.

Down a long crappy road, this restaurant is so worth the drive - so worth it we went twice. Go before sunset so you can checkout the view - explore the property for sure, it's awesome. We had a seafood platter and a charcuterie plate that were to die for. Excellent service. Enjoy!
