We never fail to get to LAX - and we were there twice on our last trip. 2-for-1 pizza night was an incredible value; the thin crust pizza please everyone from 6 to 60+. Service was quick; we ordered pizza to take back to the villa. Always a pleasure; great value; easy, relaxed, good for families.

This place has great food and with the happy hour half price on pizza and pasta all day it is great value. The let down however is the service which is just awful. Last night we waited half an hour for a beer to arrive for a friend who joined us at our table. We repeatedly asked where it was... More

The food was overall pretty good but I felt we went for the atmosphere more than anything. There are lots of areas for big groups to sit. Lots of music and a high energy at night.

Our first drink was good, but each one after got weaker until there was clearly no alcohol in it, and the food orders were all wrong

Overview: Good food and good drinks right on the beach. The Good: This outdoor eatery offers unique drinks and food options. Music and a dance floor are available in the indoor portion. There is nothing else like watching the sun set over the ocean while you eat a good meal. The Bad: The restaurant is not equipped to take all... More

This place is located in the middle of Cabarete beach and there are a lot of tables (almost all of them) just right on the sand. The food is really great and just the fact that you are consuming in the place, give you the right to use the chairs long at the beach and the wifi. We spent the... More

It makes sense that a restaurant would be more expensive on the beach but the quality did not match the price. My husband and I only ordered 2 drinks and the nachos and it was over 2,000 pesos. They were good, but not worth it. If you're not looking to break the bank, skip Lax.

They have padded loungers for you to spend a comfy day at the beach. The food is really good. The pizza and pasta are 50% off all day everyday. The service is pretty good for the DR but sometimes you do have to wait or flag down a server. At night it's not even reconizable as it turns into a... More

Started off on the sofa's having a drink in the sun, retired to a shady table for the best Dorado fish steak dish, it was truly delicious, all the family enjoyed their meals, whilst watching kite surfing, groups of youngsters playing beach football and generally people watching whilst relaxing, fairly lively beach.

Good beach bars make you think of retiring. Great ones make you actually retire. LAX - bar tipo cool - is the kind of place you dream of discovering on your first trip to the Caribbean.This club,located in the center of the famous surfing town Cabarete, attracts a laid-back, music-loving, athletic crowd in cushioned sofas.The overall red decor is warm and lounge-like, the happy hour is generous, the drinks are strong and plentiful, a big plate of fresh nachos, tapas or a crunchy italian style pizza make it an unforgetable experience. This big, open- air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 1 p.m. with happy DJs from all over the world. As the day winds down, you can grab a drink from the well stocked bar and watch the waves roll in against the sunset.
