This is a hidden treasure in the Colonial Zone. I Saw them on Google map and realized it was close to the hotel. We were craving for some rice with chicken, beans and tostones. I was doubtful when I ask if they had it and was happily surprised when they said yes but I was even happier when I ate... More

Great food (Chicken Empanada’s were particularly good) but let themselves down with service, which was a little slow and inattentive. Prices not any better or worse than anywhere else.

We had a pleasant meal here. The beans and rice were particularly good, as were the garlic shrimp. Avoid the dulce desserts unless you enjoy extremely sweet food.

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is incredible. Everytime my nieces and nephews from Germany come it's a must to go eat here. The service is good and prices ok.

Average food, mediocre service. This restaurant is overrated and overpriced. The waiter was on a scale between rude and indifferent. The staff were watching Mexican movies on a karge screen TV in the dining section, ignoring the clients. Avoid this place.

Traditional restaurant in the heart of the historic part of the city, where you will find typical food made with fresh ingredients. The cod fish empanada served as a starter is definitely a must.

The food here, however nice it was, was incredibly overpriced! I ordered the fish of the day, along with some boiled vegetables (which for the most part consisted of over-cooked carrots and peppers), and was shocked at the size of the portion. I felt like I was eating a starter and dared not order a dessert for fear of how... More

Great down home Dominican food! Large servings - huge variety - you should eat the crab empanadas! Good service.
