good mix of Dominican/Carribean music and pop/DJ. Food is oke as well. Very crowded in the weekend we've been there, but still good vibes!

LAX occupies prime location on Cabarete beach since it's right by the main entrance, so you'd get a lot of people seeing it as they walk up. The red couches and the satin ambience is really nice, but the food wasn't anything special and felt a little ordinary. I expected some better seafood and not so many fried options. Good... More

There were two couples, we stopped in for happy hour and to have dinner, the drinks were lacking alcohol so we had one drink each and left, keep walking and save your hard earned money for someplace that deservices your business.

Love sitting at Lax (Ojo Lax), having a drink, sharing a pizza or have a pasta & salad etc. I like the atmosphere and music. Only big downside is that the service is often VERY lax...i.e. slow. (While the servers are lovely, I wonder if those folks get paid enough...?) I do recommend Lax. It has a crafts market on... More

I've been here a couple of times. Their food is good, on the beach they have couches to lounge on, but it can be a process to get food, as it is very relaxed there. Not to expensive and good happy hour prices.

I have owned a villa in Sosua for ten years now. Arrived on the island January 18. Went to pick up my rental car in Cabarete and decided to stop for a beer and some lunch. Lax has never been one of my favorite restaurants to begin with. We arrived at 5 pm and they had a sign for 2... More

This place has 2 floors of music, one at the beach level and a separate bar on the roof with lounge type chairs and it overlooks the beach from the rooftop. Great place to go on Friday and Saturdays and it is not open on other nights depending on the time of year.

Good beach bars make you think of retiring. Great ones make you actually retire. LAX - bar tipo cool - is the kind of place you dream of discovering on your first trip to the Caribbean.This club,located in the center of the famous surfing town Cabarete, attracts a laid-back, music-loving, athletic crowd in cushioned sofas.The overall red decor is warm and lounge-like, the happy hour is generous, the drinks are strong and plentiful, a big plate of fresh nachos, tapas or a crunchy italian style pizza make it an unforgetable experience. This big, open- air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 1 p.m. with happy DJs from all over the world. As the day winds down, you can grab a drink from the well stocked bar and watch the waves roll in against the sunset.
