This is a highway stop that you should make of you want to taste local cuisine before or after hitting the beach!

Service was excellent. Whatever you asked for you got without hesitation.

When we got our entrees portions were plentiful! We were a group of six with a teenager and four adults and there were leftovers to take home for dinner.

Some of the fried dishes we found a little bit over cooked but my fish fillet was very tasty and the rice and beans were delicious! There's also a great assortment of natural juices from which I would recommend the cherry juice.

Was staying in Costa Dorado and looking for some local cuisine. You wouldn't really notice this restaurant from the road. There is a sign out front and you walk down a set of stair to get into the restaurant. They had seafood, pork, chicken, etc. The portion sized were very large. The food was a great taste of the DR. I had a crab dish. It arrived with a plate full of tons of crab meat. More that I have ever expected. It was a chilled dish with a vinagarette dressing and diced tomatoes, peppers, celery, onion It came with a big side of rice and beans. My husband ordered the port pieces. They were flavored very well. We are planning to go back before we leave!

El Manguito is a classic in the Puerto Plata area, a classic for Dominican cuisine dishes. The place is quite popular and and the staff is friendly. Do not expect any design or decor in this place, that is not about it, is more like a huge palapa roof with tables and chairs. However their Dominican food is really good, homemade. I suggest you try the "lambi a la criolla" (conch with creolle sauce) and the "cangrejo guisado" (crab stew). They always put in the side rice, beans and tostones (fried banana). Wanna try some Dominican food while in Puerto Plata? Please trust me and go to el Manguito. Besides the Presidente beer is always ice cold in here!

Wide offering of fish and seafood ( lobster, concha, shrimps). Very nice whole simply fried snapper - fresh and tasty with fresh red onion. You can pick rice and beans or fried potatoes or platains as side dish. Professional and friendly service, besides us only locals were eating. Check their dessert coco con leche - very good local taste. Easy to reach from Puerto Plata by gua-gua or taxi. Walkable from Playa Dorada gate. Reasonable prices.
