Delicious food here. There are so many option but they are well organized on the menu for you to read in English. The owner is very supportive of his business, both times we went there we had seen him and he said goodbye thank you for coming. I have a few stomach issues and eating food in the Cabarete and...

Unfortunately we found this gem on our last day in Cabarete otherwise we would have been eating lunch here every day! Best fish taco bowl was the best I've ever had.....fresh grilled Mahi Mahi.

This food is AMAZING!!!!!! We had the pleasure of meeting Joe when he was the concierge for the house that we rented since the owners were out of town. After talking to him we learned about his restaurant Gorditos and decided one afternoon to try it for lunch. WELL WORTH THE TRIP INTO TOWN!! Food was fresh, delicious and great... More

I read all of the reviews and I had to try this because me and my husband LOVE good mexican food. I had the fish tacos and a carnitas burrito and they were both amazing. Great flavors and wonderful spice. Food was not spicy just had a very good blend of spices that made the meat so flavorful. All of... More

My first meal outside of the hotel was fantastic. I had the Zack bowl. The fish was fresh and amazing and felt like a nice healthy change from some of the heavier choices I had eaten that the hotel. Great place to eat outside and watch the Cabarete traffic.

The best fish and chicken tacos in the world!!! The Cali wrap is incredible also! The owner is so welcoming and generous. He makes the best (and cheapest) margaritas on the cabarete strip. All the staff are super friendly and really go out of their way to give the best customer service I experienced in cabarete!!! If you are in... More

I've had the chance to stay in Cabarete, Dominican Republic for 6x weeks of work and let's just say -- Gorditos saved my life. In a place where the restaurants are limited and the food following Dominican Republic Standards (which means none exists) Gordito's delivered 1st world quality and taste. I would come here 3-4 times a week because it... More

From the moment I walked into Gordito's, I was hooked...with the staff's smiles, the great service and welcoming atmosphere. Then top that with delicious food and yummy sangrias' (which you can also take a couple to go). This place was the spot to be. I have been home for 3 days and am already seriously missing my fish tacos and... More
