There are flies everywhere. Literally, EVERYWHERE all over the food. Flies get on your face, in your drink, it's just annoying. Rude and unfriendly staff. Food isn't great. Don't waste your time.

The food mediocre. The wine was terrible. There were unhygienic cats all over walking around and drinking out of the swimming pool. Disgusting sight while having food.

My family and I were staying at the villas in this resort, having a Dominican mother she knows true Dominican flavor and she loved the food at this restaurant. One of the must visit restaurants in this resort.

The food and service provided here was exceptional! I got the lemon chicken with rice and beans and it was cooked to perfection and tasted very good. If you want to try some good Dominican food you have to go here!

The food at El Pilon is delicious. I especially like the soup. At their buffet on a Sunday, they had a carving station and a pasta station. And the service was excellent. My water glass was never empty!
