I'll start with the positives. Easy to reach, right in the main street of Las Galeras. Food was really good. Really really good. But.... the food took about one and a half hours to be ready, and two of the plates we ordered were wrong. One was a beef carpaccio, and they prepared a fish carpaccio. The waitress admitted that...

Centrally located in tiny Las Galeras. The food was very good and well prepared. Excellent fillet of fish "alla siciliana" with finely chopped fresh tomatoes and local beans instead of capers. A delicious caribbean adaptation of a classic italian dish.

Attentive staff/owner and no doubt one of the better consistent places to eat in Las Galeras, I hope they stay put for years to come. All too many good restaurants come and go here for what ever reason. Centrally located on calle Principal, it is easy to find and reach from anywhere in town or surrounding bed and breakfasts. I...

We are staying in Las Galeras and have so far eaten here twice as the mushroom risotto is so good and perfect for vegetarians. Handy position on the main road and friendly staff. Our meat eating friends also enjoyed their meals and there is a good choice on the menu.

We got several recommendations to try this restaurant. We didn't have to wait for a table, but it took quite a while to get our drinks and then our dinner. I ordered dessert but they were out, which took several minutes for the waitress to find out. Then it took a while to get the check, so we didn't bother... More

Ate lunch as this open air restaurant and my wife was undecided, so asked the chef to surprise her. After asking her a few questions, the owner/chef put together a wonderful seafood pasta with lobster, fish, clams and shrimp. I ordered off the menu and it also was excellent. Service was not what we Americans would call speedy, but everyone... More

We enjoyed everything but would have come back every night for the carbonara. So rich and creamy. Great location in the heart of Las Galeras.
