Amazing food! Big portion for good prices and exquisite preparations. We were there 3 times because the options in Bayahibe are just few and we were always more than satisfied.

This restaurant was right down the street from our hotel at "Los Flamencos". We walked there and as family and was immediately acknowledged and welcome. The food & drinks were delicious! I would definitely recommend and I will also be returning.

Very good pizza, amazing Dorada ala Italian style and delicious tiramisu. It is a family restaurant with home made food not a Michelin star restaurant plus it is in the DR so some products are difficult to source or super expensive so that should be taken into consideration before criticising them. When I was there service was great - the... More

We have been in Dominicus for two months now and La Cueva is our favorite spot for food and drinks and affordable. The owner with his wonderful tattoos and great smile is very attentive, friendly and always makes our visit special. On Valentine's day, the place was decorated festively which made the evening special. Their lobster spaghetti is the best... More

The food was good, they have a little bit of everything. But what we liked the most was the staff, they truly wanted to find everything we ask for. Drinks were really good as well. But, is the DR, you expect to get good drinks.

This corner, open air restaurant offers simple, but excellent food. The pizza is the most authentic wood oven Italian Pizza in the area. Food is good, service is inadequate, we ate here several nights - a busy place that needs fore servers to keep up and t avoid mistakes - after ordering, be prepared to wait.

Good start, good vibe, but unfortunately I have waited 35 minutes for a grilled fish and chips. We were the only table with my wife and our baby. After 30 minutes waiting I have called the owner (tattooed) who was working behind the bar, and asked him as a joke if the chef went fishing...He simply replied do you went... More
