Dominican Republic Restaurants

  • El Conuco

    4 out of 5 stars

    Santo Domingo Restaurants

    Gloria (the guide) asked us if we wanted to shop, and I said no, so we got back into the car and drove to a restaurant called El Conusco. She said this is where all the tours go for lunch. It is well set up for large groups of people and has a buffet of national foods for people to eat. Egarrido explained to me that the word "conuco" is a Taino...

  • Museo de Jamon

    4 out of 5 stars

    Santo Domingo Restaurants

    I don't know how to classify this restaurant, as it is meant to be like a bit of Spain in the capital of the Dominican Republic. The restaurant is in a historic and fitting setting - the Plaza España, just across from the Alcazar Colón, and its distinguished by its large Spanish flag and faux Navarran façade. Watch out for the hanging prosciutti!...

  • Baskin Robbins

    1 out of 5 stars

    Santo Domingo Restaurants

    One scoop of icecream in a small cup, one chocolate milkshake made from a scoop of icecream plus ice, milk (I think) and cream on top: $9.00. Was it worth it? Would you pay this at home? Nope. Nope. The mango icecream was very good and so it should be at $4 per scoop, but it wasn't $4 good.

  • Restaurants Las Terrenas (Overview)

    I won`t write a review on individual restaurants, as you are spoiled by choice anyway here, and I never left one without a yummy feeling in my stomach. Instead, a short summary on each place. As a rule of thump, eating out wasn`t as cheap as I expected but the cocktails were a real bargain!- Tres Caravelas: best experience. friendliest service,...

  • Great food at a great price

    First of all I must say Cabarete is a very cute little tourist town. There are spots here to check email, rent a moped, and many restaurants and shops. Definitely a good place to stop by if you are near there. The waitress didn't speak English, but they do have an English menu. And for a tourist spot the prices were good. The cheeseburger was...

  • Great chicken!

    Many tourists eat here since it isn't too far from the Sun Village resort. The food is great and very cheap as well.By the way, if you like chicken breast like me, in Spanish you ask for "bechuga de pollo." Thought I might help someone else avoid the embarrassment I had in asking for the part of the chicken I wanted. By the way, if you were...

  • Whole Fish and Limes

    One of our days in the DR was spent driving our rental car around the south east. We ended up by mistake in Boca de Yuma on the East coast. Boca is a small town facing a tributary which empties into the Atlantic. There are a number of restaurants along the water's edge, easily 100 feet up on rocky cliffs, waves crashing below. We were there in May,...

    Although there is some variation between different countries, the general meaning of 'criolla' is people of European ancestry born in the Americas. When used in reference to food it means food of the colonia times often combining native ingredients with the style of European kitchens and foods introduced from outside the Americas.This is generally...

  • unexpensive seafood

    There is a reaturant on the sea shore, very popular that serves cheap and quite large 'mariscadas' . Seafood in warm waters is completely different from the one from cold waters, that is the best and the most expensive as you could eat in our country. But it was good to eat this always delicious food.

  • Try a local drink

    Off the main drag is Hotel Penalba, a popular hotel and cafe with locals and tourists. They have a variety of food selections, from Dominican to chinese. Affordable and easy to read menu.Their local beer, called "Presidente" is the Dominican version of Budweiser, popular with the locals. Personally, I like their Cappuccino.The ambience is worth the...

    the good thing with all inclusive resorts is that you have access to all of their restaurants and facilities without opening your wallet everytime.try the bufet restaurant for breakfast, beach grill for lunch, we alternated between the beach bar and the pool bar within the day and tried the dominican, mexican and italian restaurants for dinner and...

    Small (about 12 tables), elegant (table cloths and fine tableware with classy decoration of the place), great food (I had sea bass ala creole, wine, coffee and flan.) and attentive professional service. I even overheard the owner accommodating special requests as if his clients were multi-millionaires. All this at very reasonable Dominican prices....

  • Go All Inclusive

    Normally I don't recommend people to go All Inclusive as it's definately cheaper to go ala carte and your not tied to the hotel feeling like you need to make that extra fee you paid for all inclusive worth your money. But in this case, unless your staying in Santa Domingo - go All Inclusive as there are very few & far between resturants in these...

  • Restaurants at La Marina

    We did not have the opportunity to eat at this trendy-looking, little restaurant. It was too early in the day for much to be happening with the restaurant as I'm sure it did not serve breakfast. But it could be considered an option for a nice lunch along with the several other restaurants in Plaza Portofino of La Marina, such as Caribbean Coffee &...

    This is the place onboard for Pizza-This retro looking place is a lounge adapted to snacking and we often went to relaxAgain only certain periods of the day apply.

  • Roadside stands

    Even by the resort, there were the local food stands, which are basically a counter attached to the "house" of the locals. We didn't try anything, but it all looked very good and smelled even better. Plus the prices seemed pretty cheap.

  • Rip off

    You will be approached by vendors wanting to get you to come to this restaurant. Now I went to this place by the invitation of friends. I knew nothing about this place except that it was off of the resort. We took a VERY short taxi ride to the restaurant and they saw us coming a mile away. Dont get me wrong but there is nothing 'local' about this...

Reservations are recommended. we'll im not a...

  • Fast food Survivor-style

    There are a lot of vendors in Santo Domingo and at the beaches that sell food. Usually fresh fruit, water bottles, seafood, coconuts, etc. Sometimes with the coconuts, they'll poke a hole in the shell, and put a straw in, so that you can drink the juice. If you haggle the price, you can eat it for very cheap. Just remember that if you buy fruit,...

  • Fast food places

    Yes, it's everywhere. McDonald's, Burger King, and other fast food places are present in Santo Domingo and other bigger towns and cities. Once while driving around town in our bus, we saw a Burger King place, and since Caolan loves it so much, he stuck his head out the window like a dog!

  • Food...

    At Cayo Levantado you will find wide range of sea food mainly. But it doesn't mean you can't get for example grilled chicken... There are many outdoor restaurants at the back of the beaches that offer a really good and fresh meals... I recommend a light snack of lambi with lime sauce and grilled fish or lobster. Very tasty :)

  • La Meson de la Cueva on Mirador del Sur

    You are on Mirador del Sur and you don't see anything. But with a close look you discover a small stairway very narry like a snail and going down. Once you're in that cave you have a good restaurant and bar in a very special environment. A little expansive but as to be seen once. Very good service. I never ate at that place. I only took cocktails...

  • TRUE DOMINICAN FOOD

    First of all, the food beeing offered at most, if not all hotel's restaurants, villas and such, it's not the actual "Criolla" food eaten by mainstream dominicans, for a tourist to sample the actual taste and flavor of the island, you'll need to avoid such places and eat at local restaurants, wich can be easy to spot, since you won't see many others...

    We ate at a few out of the way restaurants and the food was amazing, the water in our resort was fine to drink, they also provided bottled water. For those who don't enjoy seafood (?!?!?!) there was plenty of "American Style" food, which was made exactly like home. SHRIMP! LOBSTER! CRAB!

  • I could get lost in the restaurants!

    I ate at the resort most of the time, except when I went on excursions but still it was organized by the resort. There is nothing that I can say that i didn't like or that wasn't good. Everything was soooo gooood!! If I hadn't been swimming and playing and running on the beach or dancing the merengue all the time, I would have put on some weight,...

    I have to confess, the dining experience was not a highlight of the trip. We also did not go to any great lengths to FIND any great food, but mostly because we didn't want to be disappointed!We stayed at the Barcelo complex, and the food was satisfactory (see photo of buffet). I can't say I found the lobster to be that great though others did enjoy...
