  • LA FINCA RESTAURANT: don't get it twisted!!!!!!!

    by domiyork Written Dec 29, 2008

    The food is really good, I recommended!!!. I have to agree with the other comments on the restaurant, the chef does has a bitter face. But one fact is that the German chef is the husband of the "OWNER" of LA FINCA RESTAURANT, the elegant beautiful Dominican lady!!!

    Favorite Dish: I love all the dishes they'll have you wanting more

  • Rocky's: Rocky's is the place!

    by Dandy1 Written Jul 27, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cuisine is typical great American food, and the value is excellent! About 6:00 p.m. there is a small group of expatriates dining there among others. Their food & beverage/ kitchen is excellent and the portions generous and tasty.

    The owner, Marc Beland keeps an active eye on things and a photo of him can be seen on his website: www.rockysbar.com . He is a nice, slender, aesthetic looking gentleman, and is nothing like the other description someone else had rendered. For those with questions, you can count on Marc for honest answers. Aside from a restaurant and bar, Rocky's offers on premises small tourist class, simple (very inexpensive) bungalow style hotel rooms. For those wishing more amenties, a pool, etc., he offers off-premises condominiums on a very reasonable weekly rental basis.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza, Burgers, Lemon Ribs

    ~ Luigi’s Italian Restaurant ~: ~ Tasty Italian A La Carte ~

    ~ What shall i have to eat? ~

    We went to Luigi's Italian restaurant three times during our stay in Sosua. You have to book a reservation in advance which was never a problem. The restaurant has a nice cosy atmosphere and was always busy. It overlooked the swimming pool at the Casa Marina Beach Hotel which looked beautiful at night with all the lights around the pool.

    Each time we went to this restaurant we had a different meal and all three meals were delicious. We were certainly not left dissapointed. The meals came very quickly too which was good because we thought we may have to wait a while as the restaurant was always full with hungry guests.

    Favorite Dish: On all three visits we both had the same starter, Gaz had minestrone soup and i had leek and potato soup... both were delicious.

    We had beef lasagne on the first visit, it was a large portion and quite tasty although there was alot of cheese on it which was abit sickly. The second time i had a huge portion of ravioli, it was delicious and had a really nice rich tomato taste. On the third visit we had a stone baked margarita pizza, again it was a large size and was more than enough, you have a variety of toppings to choose from including a vegetarian option.

    For dessert we had a variety, the first time we had ice cream, then the second and third time we both had chocolate cake which was absolutely gorgeous... it was so soft and spongy and the chocolate was out of this world. I highly recommend Luigi's restaurant.

    WILSON'S: BAR , RESTAURANT AND INTERNET CAFÉ

    by schurlif Updated May 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bar....................
    2 more images

    Not really much to describe... I didn't eat here but what sounded really interesting was the local Creole Food... But I always passed here quickly to check on my emails because the Internet Café is inside the restaurant..... I usually stayed like an hour right after breakfast at my nearby Hotel Sosúa By The Sea and usually ordered apple, orange or grape juice..... I also had a nice chat with two of the cute girls who tend the bar area......

    And it's also a Sports Bar with direct live broadcasted sport events on giant screens....

    I very much think that this place is worth a try......

    Favorite Dish: If I ate there I would definitely try authentic local food, platanas, sun dried meat, something along this line, even though, sincerely, the board outside doesn't promise anything special......
    White rice, don't know what "moro" is, vegetables, beef, chicken and pork.....
    That's it but they also deliver to your home.... or hotel....That's nice.....

    LA FINCA: GERMAN OWNED EATERY WITH GROUCHY CHEF

    by schurlif Written May 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Finca....
    4 more images

    As I entered this place that was recommended to me I was greeted by the owners and chefs wife, an elegant beautiful dominican lady... I was seated upstairs where I soon found out that service was not the best... On top of it there was some kind of private party going on with a self service table just three meters behind me and people lined up on the very narrow corridor standing just 10 cm to my left, talking, coughing or combing their hair while I tried to eat my delicious soup... But I didn't wait too long, I called the owners wife and complained and soon was sitting at a table for four downstairs where I finally really enjoyed my soup , especially as I had also ordered garlic bread to go with it. I can't really remember what my main dish was but I remember it was very good and expertisely prepared... but it was the german owner who came from the kitchen and served me the plate with a real sour puss face.... I wondered if I had done anything wrong , like looking too much at his wife but I soon noticed that this was his face of the day..... LOL.... I walked in there one more time to get the business card and guess what...? The chef was there again with his sour puss face..... Well, nevertheless I recommend this restaurant for its tasty food...... If you want to eat a good dinner, this is the place , never mind the service and the owners facial expression....

    Favorite Dish: Well, I think it was a pumpkin soup that I ate there... I simply can't remember anymore for sure...
    And my main dish must have been meat with something appropriate to go with it...
    This place might be altogether a little bit too pretencious inspite of the owners face that I should have immortalized on my digital camera but I have to say, he knows how to cook , that's for sure......
    Maybe he had this facial expression from slicing too many onions...?

    ATLANTIC BLUE LOBSTER HOUSE: LOL.... Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!

    by schurlif Written May 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SeaFoodFest

    This restaurant is also a bit off the main hustle scene of central Calle Pedro Clisante . An inviting lobster replica hanging over your head to give you the extra appetite.....
    Again, I admit, I haven't gotten to get to know this place but it looks very OK from the outside.....
    And it's one of the places that I now repent not having tried out.....

    Favorite Dish: I'm sure it would have been some sort of seafood, lobster, shrimps, fish, crab meat.....
    When you're there, try it out and then tell me about it...

    PJ's STEAK HOUSE: ANOTHER OLDIE IN SOSÚAS GASTRONOMICAL LANDSCAPE

    by schurlif Written May 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For the big hunger.......

    This one, like La Roca, has been here already since I first stepped on Pedro Clisante soil 22 years ago....
    I have to admit that I never ate here, why exactly I don't know..... but if it has been here for that long it must have something to it..... The impression one gets is of a Wild West Saloon and by the looks and the menu and the promises it seems very inviting... I should have tried it out once, darn !! Next time maybe......

    Favorite Dish: I guess this is the place for red meat lovers.... But they also have white meat ( the ever popular pork coteletes and spareribs and various chicken dishes ), burgers and various breakfast options... Of course it is like most Sosúa restaurants also a bar......

    LA RIVIERA: Nice place to take a break....

    by schurlif Written May 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Attentive Waiter at La Riviera

    None of the above restaurant categories stick to most restaurants in Sosúa.... they have mostly seafood and steaks, so, surf and turf and pizzas etc....

    This small restaurant aspires to serve french named seafood specialities but they also serve delicious sandwiches and it's also a bar....
    It's not really that much different from the places nearby but it definitely has its own charm....
    and is an option to get away for some time from the hustling outside.....

    Favorite Dish: I had this absolutely delicious sandwich with meat ( can't remember what kind, it was beef though, for sure) and spicy mushroom sauce in an about 30 cm long, fresh and crispy baguette bread.... Afterwards I had a french style crêpe topped with orange sauce and filled with chocolate.....
    Hmmm, writing about it makes me hungry.....

    MORUA MAI: Definitely Worth a Visit

    by schurlif Written May 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good Diner

    As written on their sign, Steaks, Seafood, Pizza and Pasta in a nice surrounding a little bit off the noisy part of Calle Pedro Clisante, near the small Playero Supermarket , the street leading to the Sosúa Beach and very close to the future Casino/Disco, which for the time being is an unfinished and abandoned construction site, see later tip.

    I've eaten twice over the years in Morua Mai, they have a comprehensive, ecclectic menu, food is fine and service friendly..... being almost at the end of Calle Pedro Clisante, it is quieter and more low key.....

    Favorite Dish: I remember last time before this time, in February 2001, I can really remember when I stayed at Piergiorgio's, I had a steak plate with baked potato at Morua Mai and it just came out the way I like it..... Medium rare, juicy and tasty and the baked potato soft with butter and some chives.....

    So , that's about what I can recommend.....

    ROCKY: A GHOST FROM THE GOOD OLD TIMES.....

    by schurlif Written May 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Superb Canadian/American Eatery

    This place evokes nostalgic ( sort of ) memories in me...... It used to be the "Oasis" and the place where I stayed with my then wife for almost 2 and a half months back in 1985... there were hardly many hotels then and it was primary a bed and breakfast owned by a large dominican family....
    Today it is "ROCKY", canadian/american owned and primary a bar/restaurant in one of the best locations in Sosúa....
    I had two excellent meals here and even though the owner was a big, bald shaved grouchy guy, the food was succulent, typical american and I even took the leftovers back to my hotel in a doggie bag .... lol...... I'd say, try this place out......

    Favorite Dish: I had delicious Buffalo Wings with a hot sauce and the other time even more delicious pork ribs that melted in my mouth.... with my favorite baked potatos...
    I also saw half pound burgers, french fries and other typical american goodies in the menu but I made it a principle to eat at many different places, so I passed on these.....

    But again , I want to recommend the Buffalo Wings and pork ribs to anyone who likes this.....

    LA ROCA: SOSÚA GASTRONOMIC EVERGREEN

    by schurlif Written May 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Veteran joint with new looks
    1 more image

    La Roca had been there already for quite some time when I first arrived in Sosúa 22 years ago...
    then owned by a young canadian/american couple..... I have to admit that I didn't eat here for maybe 18 years, simply because there were so many other new places to discover... I remember that my last meal here was Filet Mignon DR style .... a nice chunk of medium rare steak with a bacon strip around it and in a madeira type of sauce....
    The fact that La Roca is still there and by the way it looks from the outside and inside it is clear that business is going well and that means that the food and management are good.
    Without knowing it at the present, I'd say it's a sure bet to dine or just kill your munchies....

    Favorite Dish: If I went back today I'd have for sure one of these succulent big meat plates with baked potatoes and/or sea food platters.... and most probably - because I can't resist - the calorie bomb crêpe with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.......... Yummie.....

    SCHNITZEL PARADISE: THE PLACE FOR SCHNITZEL AND PALATSCHINKEN

    by schurlif Updated Feb 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the info you need , now go and eat !
    4 more images

    This place , the Schnitzel Paradise, is another one of my favorite Sosúa eateries. Owned and run by Wolfgang from Linz , Upper Austria , it is more true to Austrian/Viennese kitchen than, say , a German restaurant would be.... Delicious big Wiener Schnitzel made of pork meat ( not like here in São Paulo in German restaurants with beef... ) and Palatschinken.... ( if you know German and now believe that you discovered the word for ham = Schinken in Palatschinken , LOL , then you are on the woodpath = Holzweg.... being on the Holzweg means in Austria: to be wrong....).
    So , no Schinken in Palatschinken which are , as explained in my review about Baileys, defty , thin pancakes/crèpes with chocolate sauce... in Austria there is a whole variety of different forms and ingredients. And the word comes from Croatian and was Viennized..... there is no letter in German with the sound of the Croatian ç... so it becomes ...tsch... in German , got it...?

    Another important reason why I came by so often in the Schnitzel Paradise was that I loved to be tended to by Julieta , the evening waitress..... ( see pic 4 ) . Just looking at her beauty was a delight in itself and just her friendly smile and her flawless service alone were worth the visit .

    Wolfgang , don't you ever let her go.... she's a real asset to the Schnitzel Paradise ... !

    Favorite Dish: WIENER SCHNITZEL AND PALATSCHINKEN ..... for my stomach

    And a glimpse of Julieta for my eyes..... ( lol....)

    And , BTW , they have Mexican food too......

    Yes , still only a few examples... There were even more , some of which you would have never guessed..... Like a friendly and nice restaurant called "The Sea Wolf", whose owner came from Serbia. I have neither seen Japanese, Chinese ( tough titties for you , Confucius !!) or Polish , Deli or Kosher restaurants and not one single MacDonalds or Burger King.....
    Hey , Yuppie City Slingers.... here's another big opportunity for great business , open a MacDonald or Burger King franchise on hot and crowded Sosúa Beach !

    Favorite Dish: Here we go nationality guessing....... Just for the fun of it...... If you match 3 nationalities of the various owners you get a free Piña Colada..... Cheers....

    BAR CENTRAL: IT'S NOT A RESTAURANT , IT'S A BAR !!!

    by schurlif Updated Feb 5, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Daytime Sweetie Yoeli , very cute and friendly
    4 more images

    V T ! ! You make it hard for me ! ! This tip is not necessarily a nightlife tip because this bar not only opens at night... and it's not a restaurant even though you can order food from adjacent Grill Central..... so , where do I find an option for a bar ? Can anyone tell me...?

    Well , this is Bar Central , centrally located on Calle Pedro Clisante where most of the action takes place..... This is the place which I most frequented , not because it is squeezed between the hot spots Merengue Club and Latino's Club where all the meatmarket shows its daily specials but where I would meet my friend Peter whom I know from Sosúa since 22 years.....

    I don't drink any alcoholic beverages ( because I don't like the taste of alcohol , even though there's an exception to the rule : I might drink sweet liqueur such as Baileys, Malibu or Amarula but this time I didn't). I only ordered Mott's Apple Juice , every day..... so, when I got there before I could even say Hi ! I had my apple juice in front of me..... The two sweet girls who tended to me , Yoeli in the daytime and Marta at night were quick in knowing what I liked or not.

    This place is perfect for just drinking at the bar, chatting with people, making friends , watching the girl parade outside on the sidewalk or other interesting or even real weird and eccentric people. Those would be some of the ex pat local gringoes.

    Bar Central for perfect socializing ..... Good place , nice and quick service, lots of fun....

    Favorite Dish: Well , as I said , it's a bar but right next to it is Grill Central , obviously run by other people .... But I could order at the counter with Marta my Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce or just a plain but delicious sandwich. The best deal though was the shrimp cocktail , out of this world ! A tip from my friend Peter. A massive bowl of fresh and deliciously prepared shrimps with some salad leaves and fruits and topped with a mascharino cherry , the whole thing for 6 U$. Apple juice for 1.20 U$, beer for 2.25 U$ , Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce about 10 U$. Good deal.... Thumbs up to the owner of Grill Central whom I didn't meet and to the owner and boss of Bar Central , Hermann .

    Greetz from Brasil , if you read this, Hermann !

    SHORT OVERVIEW: THE BEACH JOINTS

    Why Titanic? Is the business going down the drain?
    4 more images

    This is just a small glimpse of what you can expect during the day at Sosúa Beach.... These places probably open at night too , but I wouldn't know about it. Even though the famous Sosúa Beach is only maybe a little more than 1 km long , maybe less , you'll find more than 200 bars, souvenir and cigar shops glued one to the other and the probably best business there of all: pay toilets..!! 10 Pesos for a loo..... Very clever !!!! So here I would like to present a few of these bars/restaurants to you , first the ones with the owners name... ( see next tip for the owners nationality...., LOL...)

    Favorite Dish: I don't know since I didn't eat there..... Some sure must be better than others..... but if you're hungry and you're just dipping in the water , turn towards the beach , get out of the water no matter where you are and walk straight about for 25 meters , even less..... and chances are 85% that you will hit one of the bars or restaurants. In the case of the other 15% you might have to change your course maybe 10 degrees to the left or right.......

    I just had an orange juice at the "VULCAN" ( see next tip ) whose owner is Austrian too , like Arnold from Baileys and Wolfgang from the Schnitzel Paradise , all three from Linz in Upper Austria.

    And I paid 10 Pesos for a loo at those special enterprises.......
