“By far the best in Samana!!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We have been going to Samana for the last 8 years and never even knew this place existed. Four of us had dinner there and everyone enjoyed their meals and could not wait to go back. We had the churrasco with a mushroom sauce and potatoes which was excellent. The meat was well seasoned, very tender, and cooked perfectly. We also had filet with peppercorn sauce and another with mushroom sauce. Both of the filet were tender and tasted very good. The restaurant is quaint and friendly. The service was excellent. There is a small area with local items for sale such as gourmet coffee, chocolate, mirrors, wall decorations, etc. We went back a few days later with some friends and all 8 of us enjoyed our meals.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed 21 June 2011

The best Mahi Mahi I have ever had was at La Mata Rosada! The Red Snapper in the banana leaf was also very good! The restaurant is right across from the water and very convenient. Great atmosphere.

“One of the Best restaurants in beautiful seaside Samana Village”
Reviewed 28 January 2010

Great location overlooking the Malecon and the Bay of Samana.
The ambiance is warm and cosy, great decor.
We have eaten here several times and enjoyed every minute of it.
Great ceviche de pescado and seafood, dorado fish filet with chutney mango sauce in salsa de coco, great list of wines and desert to die for.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. NOT TO BE MISSED.
