A real challenge to get to, over a dirt road through the jungle to a cliff overlooking the sea, but absolutely worth it. We found this restaurant-bar filled with "expats" from a variety of European and Latin American countries. A real experience!

Looking for a romantic dinner - this is a must. Open deck, thatched roof, hanging off the cliff, at the end of a dirt road and with scrumptious seafood. Can't be beat!

El Cabito is an awesome little place on a cliff. We love going there when we are at Grand Paradise just to check out the view and have a beer

Went here based on other reviews on TripAdvisor. Place was gorgeous in a very rustic way. Food was overpriced, and if you don't have your own mode of transportation getting there and back will add more. Vegetarian options - a bland pasta.

We watched Whales in the bay below while we were waiting for our meal. No visit to Las Galeras would be complete without a visit to this iconic restaurant.

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
