Staff are not friendly nor are they enthusiastic by any measure and the atmosphere was horrible. We walked in and were not acknowledged or greeted, and eventually someone got off the couch and came over to seat us. Our waitress never smiled or said more...More

The view is absolutely stunning, and may make it worthwhile, especially if whales are present (I'm told in February and March). The food was okay, but expensive. DEFINITELY NOT CHILD SAFE!! If you have little ones, you need to keep them on a short leash....More

Went there for a sunset drink which was lovely. Getting there is a bit of an adventure but well worth the view. Our mistake was to stay on for dinner ... PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE and bad. A real downer when it had all started so well.

Very interesting place, located on a cliff with an amazing ocean view. It is not brand new, fancy or modern ( the fence seems unstable so don't approach it if you have fear of heights:) but that is its charm and with couple of wooden...More

We wish we had arrived earlier— maybe an hour before sunset for a beer and then skipped dinner. All told we spent about $100 USD on salty paella and soggy fried calamari. View is spectacular. People are friendly. Two dogs, one is a little aggressive...More

Located along a virtual goat path, this place is hard to reach, over-priced by Dominican standards and way past rustic. However, the incredible view from atop a scary cliff overlooking Bahia Rincon, the pounding of the surf, the amazing sunsets, and the excellent cuisine make...More

I decided to go there because of its rating on Trip Advisor, but I had no idea where I was going. The restaurant is almost unreachable, only a 4x4 can get there, but if you make it you are going to love it! Stunning view...More

The road is a dry river bed. The last 1.1 km is impassible by car. You need to hike in. Good for hikers/backpackers. Not so good for couples with 4-6 bags. We made it there but cancelled the reservation since we didn’t know how we...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

It is a little expensive. Our dinner cost about $70 for two, including a shared desert, but with sodas, not alcohol. And, as I and many others have noted in the reviews, the food is not great. If you are traveling on a... More
