Words and pictures alone cannot describe the amazing dishes that come out of that tiny kitchen. The Cerviché, Camaornes, Langostinos along with rice or potatoes and salad were all incredibly tasty. I really can't wait to visit this place again and again and again for sure.

This place is well known for its seafood but all the food is great. I have been there several times over the last 2 years and it is good each time. Try the shrimp. For all the night time outside restaurants, wear your bug spray on your legs, the bites are bad.

Papi has been famous for years, but the old guy who created and ran it had an abrasive personality. He was nasty to his staff, and they, in turn, took it out on customers. The new owners did three key things right. They kept the old man’s recipes. They added fabulous desserts. And they created a mellow and service-oriented atmosphere.... More

I went with a travel group on our last night in Cabarete. The food was AMAZING. I highly recommend the shrimp or lagunitas de papi. They are served family-style and one dish of each was enough to feed five girls along with two appetizers. The crab cakes were also amazing. There is an upstairs to the restaurant which offers beautiful... More

Excellent for dinner. Mojitos are delicious as is the ceviche. We ate our meal under the stars right on the beach and the experience was wonderful. Portions are large so you might want to share an appetizer.
