The Spaghetti Bolognese was good. The cost was $7. Dinners start at $7, and breakfast starts at $5. Only worth going there if you're staying local or have a car. Not worth the trip out there from town (about 2.5 kilometers with part of the road dirt and filled with potholes).

La Rancheta is a hotel and restaurant, located about a mile down a road right off of the main street of Las Galeras, about a block up from the beach. The restaurant serves a variety of Dominican, Caribbean and European dishes, very good, quality food served in a truly Dominican atmosphere at moderate prices. Very much worth the extra effort...

Karin took us on an exciting ride through the jungle to Playa Madama. The horses were easy to ride and the ride was very informational. Once we got to the beach Karin took us through an old cave and explained some of the history of the beach. We also got to hike up to the top of a cliff and... More

We enjoyed a big meal together with all the folks who happened to be staying at La Hacienda together that week - Ron served us like we were one family, the freshest fish with interesting appetizers and nice drinks. A great place for personal service.

We were blown away by the amazing food that Ronald and his lovely wife served up! WE had both breakfast and dinner at La Rancheta and were in awe of all meals. Breakfast is enough food to keep you going all day- delicious crepes, local cheese, eggs and great coffee. For dinner we had a feast with Ronald making a... More

Ate here twice - first time we had one of the house specialities: Belgian chicken with homemade meatballs, and chips to die for! Second time round we couldn't decide so Ronald (the host) very kindly cooked us a selection of dishes - tapas style, but not the dodgy faux-tapas you get in so many places - this was a mixture...
