If you're not sure where to eat in the village of Las Galeras, look no further! L'Aventura de John is a centrally located restaurant run by owners Francis and Deny. Food and beverage is well priced and service is gratis well. If you have an opportunity to be served by Ian, he makes you feel right at home, speaking Spanish,... More

We went there twice and in both times we didn't like it much. The food is ok and the price too, but don't expect much. They also have a bar, but we didn't try it.

We are a family of five travellers ( three teenagers😱) This restaurant was recommended to us. We arrived around five ish so maybe that was a little early for the smiles to kick in but you got the impression you weren't particularly wanted. It was fine. We were the only customers for a little while. The pizzas were delicious. Really... More

Service was the most exaggerated island time of our visit. Seriously it's like a sport trying to get a beer or even the check. Food was good.

Centrally located with a pleasant staff. I arranged to have a birthday prepared and dropped off for my wife's 60th. Staff and patrons all sang Happy Birthday for her.

Went here for dinner with my husband. The atmosphere is that of a local vibe, especially at the bar. We saw people coming to pick up food to go, and what seemed like regulars (including expats) hanging out. Chill and relaxed. We ordered fries as an appetizer, they were warm and delicious, perfectly salted. I had the fish and my... More

We ordered a pizza expecting an average dominican pizza and were served the best pizza on the island so far. My wife ordered a pina colada and she was equally impressedand and they were consistent with subsequent orders. The mojito's were also very good, not to sweet. When your in Las Galeras, this resturant needs to be on the top... More

We ordered the octopus (pulpo) carpaccio which was thinly sliced and served with sliced italian bread. It had been "cooked" with lime and olive oil and had a nice flavor. It was a plate we shared since we were not very hungry, along with a presidente Grande. Service was pleasant, no complaints at all. Had we been more hungry we... More

The service was fantastic, the food was amazing and to take back to the hotel we ordered a goat cheese pizza to go which... More

The food is not exceptional, the service is indifferent and the price is high (on the bill they add about 30% on top of the original price). In conclusion: there are better places in town!
