Beautiful view, decent food. More expensive than any restuarant in town but the view is worth the trip.

This place is a must while visiting the Las Galeras area - take a cab - the road is awful, but worth it! Fantastic view from high on the cliff and we even saw whales off shore while we were there. Mojitos are fantastic! And...More

Hi. Las Terrenas is a long drive away, I would say about 1.5 hours drive. You would have to negotiate with a taxi there, but the roads are not good especially the last part to the restaurant. I suggest an SUV. Could get... More

It is a little expensive. Our dinner cost about $70 for two, including a shared desert, but with sodas, not alcohol. And, as I and many others have noted in the reviews, the food is not great. If you are traveling on a... More
