In ten years of visits to Cabarete, we never miss at least one evening at LAX. Relaxed, casual, and great value for the food. We usually travel with a group, are always accommodated well - typically order the wonderful, oval, crispy-crust pizzas - perfect for one person, so we've tried every topping. Drinks are very reasonable - a VERY decent... More

I had the Caesar salad with no after effects at all! The kitchen area looked spotless. 3 of us ate during the lunchtime happy hour when pasta, salads and sandwiches are half price. Huge portions, quick efficient service and no hassle at all. We visit Cabarete annually and will definitely return here. There are so many places vying for custom... More

Drinks are probably ok but thier hygiene in the kitchen is probably below standards as I spent a good deal of the next 2 days running to the toilet after eating their Cesar Salad on dec 30. Probably washed with dirty water. Thank you for spoiling my new years eve! O, and I can confirm... More

A great place to start your night out. Lots of comfy seating. Late night snacks. Drinks were reasonable. Service was a LITTLE slow, but friendly nonetheless.

Lax used to be one of my favourite places, but I had two seperate poor experiences lately. With four tables on the beach occupied one would say the four waitresses would be able to manage. They were very occupied with themselves, leaving us to wait for service... On the other occasion I asked for half a portion like I used... More

I've eaten at many of the restaurants along the beach in Cabarete and this is my personal favorite. It is so relaxing to sit on the beach and enjoy the sights. The food it good-I like the pizza the best. I have always had a great experience there and always leave happy.

Absolutely the worst service we've ever gotten! Do not come here. Period! They didn't get what we asked for. We waited forever for the food and the waitress was rude. Again. Do not come here!

Good beach bars make you think of retiring. Great ones make you actually retire. LAX - bar tipo cool - is the kind of place you dream of discovering on your first trip to the Caribbean.This club,located in the center of the famous surfing town Cabarete, attracts a laid-back, music-loving, athletic crowd in cushioned sofas.The overall red decor is warm and lounge-like, the happy hour is generous, the drinks are strong and plentiful, a big plate of fresh nachos, tapas or a crunchy italian style pizza make it an unforgetable experience. This big, open- air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 1 p.m. with happy DJs from all over the world. As the day winds down, you can grab a drink from the well stocked bar and watch the waves roll in against the sunset.
