Because of the influx of all-inclusive resorts in Playa Dorada, it's probably pretty tough to own a restaurant. I mean, who would pay for food that they've technically already bought through their hotel package. But, I ate a Le Petit Francois tonight and was blown away. I was blown away by the ambiance, by the service and by the food.... More

Great food but found it very disorganized and never did receive a second beverage that was ordered. Before entering the ladies room I was asked to wait while the toilet was plunged and cleaned. I thought this should have been done before supper hour.

So glad we found this restaurant and, on a 5-day trip to Puerto Plata, ate dinner her twice! The personal service was great and the food is excellent. The restaurant serves French Canadian and Dominican food and almost every dish we had was delicious. The waitstaff are certainly not polished but that is what gives this place its quality charm...

A gem on a basic beach. The fried fish is to die for...its HUGE!!! Laid back atmosphere. Great prices, especially for a tourist area.

We had lunch (poutine from Quebec) which was very good. We also had dinner one night and it was just fabulous. Terrace overlooking the ocean, food was excellent (steak and surf'n turf). We met the owner François from Gatineau Quebec, very friendly & welcoming guy. Merci pour une super belle soirée à Puerto Plata. Restaurant accessible par la plage.
