Otra Cosa really is something else. The location is at a rather obscure end of a small lane off of a road behind Janet's supermarket. It is quite a simple setting for a tropical gem of a restaurant right on a small beach. There is a small and simple menu which is quite exquisite. All the flavours blend in and... More

Otra Cosa is one of our favorite places to eat in Cabarete. The food and setting is out of this world.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to revisit one of my favorite restaurants in Cabarete Otra Cosa is basically that........a unique place in this town, in a very relaxed atmosphere , with a very tropical up set, maybe even too rustic for my taste. French-oriented cuisine with high quality products, good execution thereof and great result in all areas, (Entree,... More

The location is beautiful however it looks like a shack from the outside. The table cloth was stained, and the hurricane lamp had a missing chip of glass. Details are important at this menu price point. We ordered two appetizers, one lobster and a salmon appetizer. The lobster was very chewy, the salmon app was missing the caviar which I... More

walk down the street next to Janet's Supermarket and you will find this almost hidden gem, next to La Punta apartments. Food is excellent and so is the atmosphere and the waiters. Certainly a place to visit again.

I went back to this fancy restaurant after over two years and I can't tell it preserved its magic: the location is beautiful, the atmosphere is nothing short of magic but... food is not up to par and it's outrageously overpriced. We end up paying over 50$ for two small entrées and two glasses of wine. They also have the... More

Myself and my family have been frequent patrons of this establishment spanning many years; we have indeed spent many lovely evenings at Otra Cosa ( written compliments in the guest book etc) . That it is why I was torn whether to write this review expressing my great sadness & disappointment : it follows another experience last summer. Whatever this... More

Probably one of the more expensive places in Cabarete (cash only - Dominican pesos or US Dollars) with a lovely ocean view and casual-elegant decor. Service was poor for an establishment at this price category; staff were limited in bi-lingual communications and seemed to disappear every time we needed something or had a question. Place was not packed so not... More

It was a truly romatic place right off the beaten path. We loved the location and the attention of the staff. The food was really different and exquisite. The chef / owner came out several times to make sure we were enjoying our experience. We shall be back!

The Lobster Bisque at this upscale resturant is tainted and can make you deathly ill. The ower, Ed Coll, should remove it from the menu. Two people became extremely sick after eating this soup...one spent three days in Cabarete Hospital and almost died of food poisoning. What a way to end a wonderful vacation.
