We ate at the restaurant last month whilst celebrating our friends birthday. She lives in Puerto Plata and recommend it. We weren't disappointed. Couldn't fault anything about it. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was divine. Treat yourself and enjoy!

During a recent trip to the Dominican Republic, we had the opportunity to dine out in Puerto Plata and chose La Tarappa. We were treated to what can only be described as an EXCELLENT MEAL with top quality service. The facility has a beautiful décor and the menu choices offer a wide and varied selection. We were more than satisfied with our decisions and went away with no complaints. We will definitely make a point of returning when we next visit Puerto Plata, most likely next year in April.

If you are looking for an enjoyable night out on the town, a delicious meal and good value for your money, we would STRONGLY RECOMMEND you choose La Tarappa........you won't be disappointed.

Puerto Plata is a lovely port city on the Atlantic shore of Dominican Republic. A beautiful area of this island nation with awesome beaches like Playa Dorada, Long Beach and a little further out the all time beauty, Sosua beach. While staying at the San Marino Club last weekend we ventured into town to share with family. We are very familiar with PP and its amenities, some catering the tourist, some not. A few of its restaurants well known for good food and friendly service. However, this time we had service less than average...the Tarappa was one of our favorites before. Now it receives more people than it can handle. Ordering was an ordeal and then the wait was looooong. Food came to the table cold....imagine cold spinach soup and cold 4 cheese pasta?! Thank God for the Capresa and my cup of red wine! The waiter smiled and was excusing the bad service, because of a full house. They should double the waiters on weekends to provide adequate service. If so, we may try again.

We were staying at the Casa Colonial and decided to try something away from the resort. This came with good reviews so we made our way. We had pizza and the pasta and both were very good. I certainly recommend the pizza and its very large.

We have eaten at this restaurant probably 50 times and every single time it is as good as it was the last time. Lots of times with a restaurant this size it is hard to keep the food consistent and quality at its best but this place is always amazing. We really enjoy the servers as well they all know us by name and always have a smile and welcoming greeting. The owner Frank is always in and out of the kitchen often cooking himself to make sure the food is just right. Some of my favorites are the Antipasto plate as an Appetizer to share, the Galicola Spaghetti is out of this world it is loaded with garlic and basil it is soooo good, as for desert there many different wonderful options my favorite is the Panocota or homemade Pistachio ice cream. It is our go to place in Puerto Plata and we Love it.
