Stopped in for a quick drink. Amazing staff and an amazing view! Would recommend! If you are staying at Dreams La Romana, it is about a 10 minute walk on the beach. Great place to meet locals and other travellers.

Went for a quiet supper. All in all a great experience as the meal was great and not too costly. Pretty hefty portions so be careful how much you order. Just had to brush off a local who wanted to shine my sandals.

I came to have a cup of espresso and stayed to have a couple of beers. The place is right near where tourist catamarans disembark their passengers. Service at the counter was snappy and prices were really decent.

Nice spot for people watching overlooking the water. We waited a long time for food, so if you are in a hurry maybe go somewhere else. I had the fish and chips. It was good but not a very big serving size. She had nachos,...More
