Surely one of the best restaurant views anywhere and certainly in the DR. Food superb: Had Fish Carpaccio, Lionfish with fried rice/veg, Creme Brulee, Espresso. Two drinks. US$50 good value for the quality. They have almost finished repairs following the hurricane and the restaurant and grounds look great. Until the new signage goes in the may help find it.

DIRECTIONS
Difficult to find, these directions may help. Do not trust either MAPS.ME or Google Maps to guide you, they are quite wrong. LEAVING Las Galeras centre on the main road. At c.KM6 there is a Cemetery on the left (look for the long green wall). Turn next left, just a bit further on. This is where there in a big sign saying ''Samana Ocean View Eco-Lodge". Also a very small white-on-green road-sign "LA GAUZAMA". Now take the 3rd right. Soon after there is a fork in the dirt road, go right. Follow right to the end. Ask if not sure, the locals know it well.

It's steep. SUV is fine, only a brave person would try in a saloon. I doubt it would work.

Owners are arrogant / typical French / fussy .... you need 3-4 hours for drinks and dinner ...

And I love it ... been twice and will go back again and again.

Average food for expensive prices, bad service. My husband and I spent a month and a half in Las Galeras and were able to try almost all of the major restaurants in the area. We were excited to eat here since we had heard such good things. He is Dominican and I am American. It took us 2 hours to get our food, while everyone else around us was being consistently served (French and German couples/families). Not sure... maybe it bothered them that we are an interracial couple, but either way, when we finally received our food @9:30pm (we arrived at 7:00) it was simply average. So was the atmosphere, dogs casually walking through the dining rooms and under the tables. More of a casual French cafe atmosphere than a quality restaurant.
