Ok, so maybe the food isn't the best, but the setting more than makes up for it. I've recounted my experience here on countless occasions as we drove here straight from Santo Domingo and barely caught the sun setting. You really do feel like you're...More

View from the terrace is fantastic. Food prices very high. The food itself (seafood paella in my case, RD$1800) was just above average, nothing special. If you have a car or stay nearby it is worth dropping in for the sunset, but having a full...More

I rented a bungalow in Las Galeras for 10 weeks called Casa Jim. The bungalow was falling apart and I did not have hot water and I even couldn't use the bathroom for 5 days straight. Because my rental property was so abysmal I spent...More

Go here. A car will make it (we did- twice!) but it's definitely an adventurous drive! :) The views at sunset are nothing short of absolute amazingness.

We have just enjoyed a stunning and romantic sunset. This place is definitely worth a visit. However, the prices of the food are just beyond the border, especially once you have in mind that the 50 dollar paella (for two persons) is priced the same...More

A great (tiny) restaurant on the edge of a cliff. Food is great and the sunset was amazing. There is a great little petting zoo as well.

We dined at El Cabito twice in 10 days and both experiences were wonderful. Food and service match the outstanding location.

Hi. Las Terrenas is a long drive away, I would say about 1.5 hours drive. You would have to negotiate with a taxi there, but the roads are not good especially the last part to the restaurant. I suggest an SUV. Could get... More

It is a little expensive. Our dinner cost about $70 for two, including a shared desert, but with sodas, not alcohol. And, as I and many others have noted in the reviews, the food is not great. If you are traveling on a... More
