A definite must visit while on the beach, excellent rib dinner with fries, market pricing but still reasonable, large order is more than enough for sharing between the two of us. Ribs take a while, but well worth the wait, clean, friendly servers and private washroom facilities, which is rare on the beach.

Came to Sosua Beach to experience the Dominican Beach day..Sundays...and a transplanted Canadian took us there to eat. The best ribs I have EVER eaten. Go there, you won't regret it! The small order is huge!! So succulent, the meat just falls off the bone. Came with fries and a salad...top it off with a local beer and it is... More

You can't go wrong eating at the Scandinavian Beach Bar. The food is always very good and the hamburgers are GREAT. If you decide to spend the day at the beach Eddie will look after all of your needs, lounge chairs, umbrellas, drinks, food and so on, he is a nice guy that will do his best to keep you... More

Had lunch and shared baby back large ribs - the best I've ever had. So tender, so juicy, fall off the bones. Took awhile for them to cook so we had to patiently wait but it was worth it. Really enjoyed. More than enough for 2 people!

There is a new chef in charge of the kitchen, and the food and service seem to be greatly improved. Long may this continue, though I fear he will soon be tempted to move elsewhere...Don't miss the ribs!!

I have tried a lot of places on Playa Sosua and to me this is the best one. The service is fast and the food is good and well priced. The new chef is even better than the Tom the owner and the food arrives quickly after having been ordered. Cold beers, fast internet, clean toilet, what more can you... More

One of those places you go to eat and almost feel bad for being there. A couple of the waitresses seemed nice but the one that seemed to be manager or supervisor was rude and not welcoming. The chicken sandwich was really delicious but because of the service I would not go back.
