We went for breakfast and the food was very good. It is a street cafe on the main road with a very casual atmosphere. Very good service.

Went for lunch yesterday. My wife wanted a cheese burger with lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle only to be told that was only possible on a hamburger without cheese. I ordered a quarter fried chicken and fries with a salad. The chicken was like rubber and tasted like extremely old oil. Their we insects on the floor that looked... More

Good, affordable place for bacon and eggs. Centrally located. The French owner remembered my husband's order. Library in the back.

Came here twice on our vacation. Once for lunch, the chicken Caesar wraps are delicious; and second time for breakfast, the breakfast burrito was great too! The juices are all fresh (and you can definitely taste it), and the coffee is quite good as well. As a bibliophile (book lover) myself, I was THRILLED to see they have a pretty... More

Located on the Main Street of Cabarete this restaurant serves a wide selection of breakfast items as well is a lot of diner style food. I could best describe this place as a North American diner with things like sandwiches, burgers and fries or fish and chips. The fries are fresh cut never frozen. Best bacon in town whether on...

We got there at 1, half the tables were empty, they brought us our drinks almost right away. 45 minutes pass and... More

I've been to Friends many times over the years and always enjoyed the food. Today I brought 4 friends with me, and although it was extremely busy at the beginning after around half an hour after we'd ordered, the restaurant was semi-full but not what you would call packed. The first time we asked where the food was (around half... More
