Found this beachfront bar while walking along Playa Dorada, food is amazing. The menu has alot of choices covers Dominican Italian French and American cuisine. Owners mingle with the clients making you feel like family. The staff and service are on point.

We went for lunch. Had bruschetta to start. Was very good but not toasted enough for my liking. More like warm bread. Had to try the poutine of course. I would be lying if I said it wasn't good. But !. The gravy reminded me...More
