I decided to give this place another try this year. Again the food was excellent and the price was ok. We were a large group so someone at our table had nearly everything on the menu. The kitchen staff did great, everyone was very happy...More

Good authentic Dominican food & drinks. Service is friendly, good takes a little longer than usual but because the food is make to order so it's fresh. Dinner & drinks for 5 cost around $75 U.S. I would recommend coming here for authentic food.

This no frills restaurant has become one of our favorite places in Las Terrenas. The owner/chef, Andre and the waitress, Nelly, are lovely people! The food is always fresh - try the Pollo con Salsa Limon (Chicken with lemon sauce), the Guacamole or the Shrimps....More

If you want real Dominican food, this is the place to go. The rice and beans, the yuca, the plaintains---all delicious. Do order the guacamole-superb. My chicken with lemon sauce was fantastic. The people were very nice and were very tolerant of our poor Spanish....More
