Wow! Simply a must do when visiting the Samana Peninsula. This place has a better ambiance and vibe then almost any other restaurant I've ever been to. The Lion fish was excellent and I'm not a big fish person. Pierre and Vanini really make you feel at home in this european style cafe and restaurant. The drive is a bit tough but just follow the signs I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Dominican Republic for any substantial amount of time.

Pierre and Vanina run this very beautiful restaurant on the top of a south facing hill facing the Bay of Samana. Visitors should arrive an hour before sunset to soak up the 'sheer jurassic' beauty of the terrain and blue sea.

The food is awesome! I recommend the 'filet de boeuff' (steak) which is a great cut. Get the blue cheese fondue dip with it! One of the best cuts of meat I've ever had! I also recommend the caesar salad.

A must go and worth the trip even if you arn't in the area!!! A+++++

It is worth the long drive up a rough and steep road to enjoy the magnificent views from the top. The hosts were friendly and gracious and the food was reasonably priced. The jazz music set a romantic tone and the food was great. It was the best meal of our trip! I especially recommend The Nutella crepe for dessert.
