Always fresh stuff, great service and great local cuisine. moreover, you may try Lebanese food with a Dominican touch as the place was founded by Lebanese immigrants. They opened a second one in the road to Punta Cana. Great stop on the road.

Our last day in the Dominican Republic we decided to try this place since it is #1 on Tripadvisor in La Romana. Firstly, the less that this place has is Mediterranean food so don't expect it. Second, the food tended to be bland, with not...More

This place felt like heaven after one week of not so good all-inclusive food. Delicious, simple, fresh middle eastern food that comes with friendly service. Baba Ghanoush and chicken kebab were great with ice cold beer.

Though specialising in Middle Eastern cuisine, Yolanda and Juan's menu have a range of local (Dominican) dishes. In fact if you speak to them beforehand, they will endeavour to cater for special requests. Their hospitality is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Seating is available indoors with air-con, and also a renovated outside terrace to watch the world go by. The recipes have been passed from generations and after 46 years, the restaurant continues to develop its menu and deliver an excellent mouth watering experience. Do not forget to try the dishes for which they are most known for, the Kipe and Catibias. The Kipe is a traditional arabic dish made out of bulgur wheat filled with meat and fried to perfection and the Catibia is their version of an empanada made out of yuca instead of flour and filled with a variety of options like meat, chicken, cheese, conch or a combination of these. They are amazing! Shish Kabab has now opened their second location on the Autopista del Coral, it's the highway that connects to the east coast of the island. Coming from Santo Domingo, it will be after the first toll, just before the second one next to the Gas Station Next. If you are coming directly from La Romana, it will be just before the first toll. The new location offers the same menu and has created a cozy, elegant and tropical ambiance that is perfect for a road trip stop for food and refreshments. Their natural juices are a must, in addition of course to the Kipes and Empanadas, which they are famous for. If you are traveling back home from the Punta Cana airport, this will definitely be the best goodbye meal of a lovely visit.
