I enjoyed everything that I had for dinner, the best is a dish called Mofongo with Camarones. Also you can have the best desserts of all the restaurants in bayahibe

My family and I live in Bayahibe and we love Cafecito Lonza! Greg and his team offer some of the best dishes in town. We often go for the Chicken Curry, the fish dishes and on some Thursday nights they have a BBQ special which is always great with some live music. If you would like to try something local... More

Everytime I visit the restaurant I am enjoying the best food in a very good atmosphere. The location ia amazing, the staff very friendly. I absolutely recommand the filet in blue cheese sauce and the chocolate fondant. You won't regret it!

Wonderful little place for late night dining. The owner is french and the food has a European flair. I had the conch with rice. The flavor was terrific and it was very soft, not chewy. The spices were delicate and very good. Along with a caramel crepe for dessert, this was an excellent meal.

I would gladly return to El Cafecito Lonza. Our waiter was attentive and kind, and the staff did their best to speak English when our Spanish wasn't the best. The food and drinks were great! I highly recommend the Pina Colada. Also, the Mamajuana was worth the try (our waiter even took a shot of it with us). It was... More

While dinning you can oversee the harbour of Bayahibe and specially in the evening it looks magic. The owner, Gregory and his staff, give you a warm welcome and do everything to make you feel home! We decided to go for the meat on the menu and it was delicious! As ordered it came as asked, well done, medium or... More

Cafecito Lonza is one of our favourite spots in Bayahibe! We love going there at sunset and enjoy drinks overlooking the bay. Our favourite at Cafecito Lonza is the chicken curry and we really love their tapas - we usually order many and share. It makes for a perfect light dinner/end of the day cocktail time. Greg and his team... More

What a wonderful French restaurant on the water in Bayahibe. We had been in Bayahibe over the past couple years and enjoy trying different places each time. The restaurant is in a corner behind other restaurants and a little tricky to find, but we just walked through some outdoor restaurants toward the beach and had no trouble finding it. I... More
