Our party of 8 walked to Luis Restaurant from the Viva Wyndham V resort. The beach was perfect for walking and it wasn't too far. We all had a drink, which were nice and cold! Service was great and the atmosphere was rustic and fun!

This is a beach side typical restaurant. It has typical Dominican food at a reasonable price. Plan to spend some time there. You can swim in the ocean and enjoy the island. Good pina coloda

Restaurant Luis was everything it was cracked up to be, rustic, to say the least. The price is not cheap. It shows a single $ . It is more like a $$ to $$$. The food was however excellent and we will go again.

Great place for lunch on Playa Coson. After getting a table you get to pick your fish or lobster from a cooler and they grill it for you. Fish/lobster is served with typical sides. They also have good drinks. Can get busy during peak season and holidays.

Restaurant Luis is located on Playa Coson. The beach in front of the restaurant has beautiful sand, fun waves for body boarding/surfing and some shells. The weekends will be super busy so go early, order and hang out. You can bring your own drinks but don't miss out on their amazing pina coladas. Your server will tell you what they... More

This place is large and can accommodate a lot of clients. Luckily for us, there were not many clients when we went. We chose 2 large fish with fries and other sides. The fish were per-fect, with crispy skin full or herbs, the meat was cooked perfectly with a lot of humidity left in the flesh. Not cheap but you... More

Both the novelty (after a dozen years coming here) and the food (a strong wind made sure all became lukewarm quickly). LUIS has been a staple of our vacations and while the beach it sits on remains splendid, it has expanded and grown enough (credit cards accepted now) to have lost the magic feeling to us. The service is still... More

We travelled to Luis on a rainy day, and loved our lunch! The beach is absolutely beautiful and the fish was amazing! We would go back on our next trip to Las Terrenas. Always great to eat a lovely meal at a place where your kids can run around on the beach.
