This is not really a place known or found by tourists. This is mainly a place for the local office and other crowd eating a decent lunch. It has a bit of a School Dinner feel to it but the food is decent and the prices are good. It is well airconditioned so for those very warm summer days a... More

A great buffet and often a show. I came for a school dance recital and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the buffet. They have a regular menu as well and a reputation amongst locals as a great place to drink and dine.

The food here is good and the price is very accessible. If you want to try dominican cuisine here this is the place. They have a buffet everyday.

As I live in the area I decide to have lunch here once and it was way overpriced and I had the normal dominican food. Last time ever I was there

This restaurant has basically the type of food I like. Tasty and economical. I went there today at 12.00 noon (Sunday 18 May, 2014). The buffet contained a great variety of food. I had salmon, potatoes and beans, which I enjoyed. The price was 205 pesos. I will certainly return.

Cafe Tropical is great for daily lunch take out. You can take it home or eat it their in their air-conditioned, clean place. They have many choices of food , not only meats but fish and salads. I go there several times a week and its always good. I also love their watermelon juice and "tres leche" desert cake. Yumm!!!
