We have been here for two months on vacation and we went to Chez Arsenio for my husbands birthday. The food and staff were fabulous.

It was quite busy and the waiter was quite disinterested. The prices advertised on their website were not accurate and have increased considerably. I would probably not have gone there if I... More

If dogs aren't allowed in McDonald's, then why are they allowed in a wonderful fine dining restaurant? Dog owners were very disrespectful of other's dining experience. Such a shame...excellent cuisine.

We went for dinner early so we could see the beach and after we ordered walk down to it. We had great appetizers (meatballs, onion rings, empanadas), happy hour drinks, and surf and turf for our main course. Everything was beautifully presented and delicous. We had time to walk around the property, see the peacocks, and return to our meal.... More

Chez Arsenio is a local favorite and we were lucky enough to have it in our backyard for our honeymoon stay at Hideaway Beach Resort. Spectacular hospitality, unreal view of the surf break, and consistently superb food~ We totally recommend eating here and vacationing as well. This must be on your to do list while visiting DR.

My family and I have tried Chez Arsenio's wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. This is something to remember! The dishes are to devour... truly tackle your taste buds. Oven roasted turkey with stuffing and gravy, and cranberry sauce...mmm...Their frozen cheesecake is something to crave for as well.
