While in Las Galeras everyone talks about El Cabito. It seems like a legend of a place. We heard that reservations are hard to come by, and the fact that it's not easy to get to makes it even more mythical. Get there before sunset, and be ready to take in some of the greatest views from any restaurant in... More

Breathtaking views, a cool ocean breeze and cold refreshing mojitos. I fell in love with my fiancee all over again as we relaxed and experienced the most beautiful sunset. Our dinner was amazing but the beauty and serenity of this cozy little restaurant is what truly stole our hearts. He couldn't have planned a more perfect honeymoon.

Having read all the glorious reviews I was excited to have dinner at El Cabito After experiencing it, I thought the view and setting were absolutely stunning. It would be hard to give this place less then 5 stars if they simply served beer and nuts. That said, while the food was good I wasn't wowed by it. The service... More

My husband and I made it there too late to see the sunset, but that didn't take away the beauty of this place! We felt like we could reach up and scoop the stars out of the sky. Saw a few shooting stars too. The sound of the waves crashing set the ambiance. The meal was amazing, but even more... More

Small and cozy, super food, wonderful hosts, spectacular view overlooking the ocean. Can even stay the night in a hammock for $5. Favorite meal was the stir fried veges and fruit.

I was staying with a friend nearby and walked over to El Cabito one afternoon. The view from the cliffside restaurant is absolutely breathtaking. I didn't order anything to eat so can't comment on the menu, but the service was fantastic. If you are visiting Las Galeras you really should check out El Cabito.

Everything about this restaurant was fantastic. I ventured out of my comfort zone and had the conch, squid and octopus spaghetti and it was one of the best things I have ever tasted. The service was phenominal, and the view was to die for. Anyone who visits Las Galeras must visit this restaurant - it will make the vacation worth... More
