A unique and stunning location; Perched on a cliff with the frequent sound of a blow-hole nearby. Prices are high by DR standards however the location and ambiance are special. LOCATION You might make this in a standard saloon if experienced and careful in these...More

El Cabito has beautiful views - that much is definitely true. The food is pretty tasty but not the best I had in the DR on my trip. It's quite expensive and the restaurant doesn't take credit cards (or at least didn't when we were...More

Ate here twice. May be hard to drive to, but well worth the effort. View is unbelievable and food very good. If they have the lobster entree, get it - you will love it.

Ok, so maybe the food isn't the best, but the setting more than makes up for it. I've recounted my experience here on countless occasions as we drove here straight from Santo Domingo and barely caught the sun setting. You really do feel like you're...More

View from the terrace is fantastic. Food prices very high. The food itself (seafood paella in my case, RD$1800) was just above average, nothing special. If you have a car or stay nearby it is worth dropping in for the sunset, but having a full...More

Hi. Las Terrenas is a long drive away, I would say about 1.5 hours drive. You would have to negotiate with a taxi there, but the roads are not good especially the last part to the restaurant. I suggest an SUV. Could get... More
