I eat here often when I am in Cabarete/Puerto Plata. The food is fresh, well seasoned and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Ate here almost everyday during my time in Cabarete. Just down the surf camp I was staying at, the food was fresh and delicious everytime! Try the fish taco, it's a gem!

Was ok...just really expensive for what you get. 500 pesos for a shrimp burrito. You can get a fine full dinner for that much at many other wonderful places...

At this nondescript strip-mall joint, don't be surprised to see a long line as everyone, gringos or dominicanos, craves Gordito's famous fish tacos, so heavenly that we went back twice! Grab a table outside or order to-go.

Good tacos, not the best, but definitely fresh and fast. A nice outdoor seating area on the main drag.

Definitely make at least one visit to Gordito’s. The fish tacos are amazing, especially the way they prepare and fry the tortillas. They also offer beer, sangria, and margaritas. Price is between two and three dollars per taco. So delicious!! Great for lunch or dinner.
