Perfect location where you can choose to sit inside or right at the beach. The menu includes all you can ask for and is very well cooked. We had both brekfast, lunch and dinner. The staff is really great!!

This restaurant and bar is part of the Villa Taina where we stayed. The restaurant was a nice surprise. We ate most meals there because it was good and convenient for us. Good breakfast buffet for $10US. Good pizzas made onsite. Great specialty nights including a fabulous 3 course Valentines dinner. Happy hour at the bar 5-7. Always a happening... More

We came for dinner in our stay. The restaurant was not too busy, and the service was attentive. Most of us ordered the special which was shrimp. They were tasty but overdone. They were accommodating regarding preferences for each plate. Eg whether we wanted potato or rice or only vegetables. Vegetables were overlooked as well. As the restaurant wasn't busy... More

Serenade is one of the amazing beach dinning locations on Cabarete Beach. The night we eat there the food was not the best, guessing it was just an off day.

On Wednesday nights the restaurant is attracting a lot of people - the Mongolian cuisine is on the tables. Its fun to see how it is prepared (just in front of you in the open kitchen). But the best part is when you choose yourself of what you going to eat - and every Wednesday you can experiment with your... More

We often eat a tropical salad at lunch time which I liked more than my wife. To sit there at lunch time is nice. We eat about 5 times at dinner time and the food was ok but not more than average.

Our family ate here since we are staying at the hotel. Breakfast is included with our room, so we had breakfast here everyday. A small, european-style buffet with a made-to-order omelet and crepe bar. Food is basic and nothing special. If it wasn't included in our room, we wouldn't come back ;) We ate dinner here one night and found... More

Thanks for giving us our candid review. We are sorry to hear that you thought our offerings were basic and expensive. That is not generally the type of reviews we are given, but we understand everyone has different taste and expectations. We are for sure not a gourmet dining restaurant, but we have a veteran Italian chef who has been... More
