We até here tonight and the food, atmosphere and service were outstanding. Might be the best tuna I've ever eaten! Definitely the best meal we had in DR. Would go back again in a heat beat! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

This place came highly recommended by our local guide. The atmosphere is very nice. The food was amazing. We both had the steak cooked medium rare served with the three sauces and the vegetables. We also enjoyed the meat and cheese appetizer. The only real issue that we had was the server came and took my wifes empty drink away... More

Super food for 2 at less than 30$. Eat there twice in the same week. Came in with 6 friends. We ordered different things on the "chackboard menu" and we all loved what we ate. Wine is fine too, they have a wine bar if you just want a drink. Recommended to friends on the beach and got happy comments... More

This restaurant was a blessing and I could call it a diamond in the rough. I was staying at an apartment hotel in El Cortecito close to the beach and all the restaurants close to there were quite pricey.

My husband and I were very charmed by this small part of France in Dominican Republic... Food is amazing, service is good, and the owner comes at your table to present you the menu on a blackboard " a la francaise "... That's very original and unique in the island because the menu changes everytime you visit. It is varied... More

Visited this Restaurant recently. Very poor service - lots of waiting around. We even workmen with ladders wondering about finishing off work. The Terrace overlooks the road. We both had the ribeye which had to be returned - it was full of gristle. The fillet was better. For a great meal, try the Lobster at the Moon restaurant - better... More
