Suggested Restaurants in Cabarete
Aly’s Surf Camp – absolutely awesome. It is located in Pro Cab. You go down the Main Street and a little before Janet’s supermarket the road forks to the right and there is one of those security gates across the road. Go to the end of the street and you have to turn right. Continue and make your first right, not very far, and Aly’s is straight ahead. You walk through the garden, past the surf camp rooms to the restaurant. It’s a huge thatched roof area with an open kitchen with tables inside and out on a small deck as well. Small chalkboards hanging from the walls are the menu. All dinners come with a salad which is self-serve near the kitchen plus a potato or veggie on the side. The potato had a special sour cream sauce and was so sweet. You MUST try the churassco XXL, 399 pesos. It is a huge slab of thin beef (6 in X 16 in, not exaggerating!) and melt in your mouth tender. The lobster for 499 pesos was also excellent. We did not like the shrimp that much FYI. I actually brought my beef back and had steak and eggs the next day and it was still tender.
Gorditos – the best and the fastest! Run by Californians John and Deidre who have brought Tex Mex to the DR. If you are not into tacos and burritos they turn it into a nice bowl of food. Really reasonable!
Aquas on the beach in front of the Millennium everything from reasonable pizza and pasta to full dinners. Best beef Carpaccio!
Casa Mami’s – we never ate there because we learned about too late in our stay and couldn’t find it at night. It’s supposed to be past Janet’s near the police station. Here’s a video about it:
We will definitely check it out next time
Lazy Dog Bar and Grill – this place is almost near the end of the beach. It’s the place with the outdoor furniture with the green cushions. They have happy hour, $1 rum punches and Mojito. They are not as big as the Mojito bar drinks though. They also have some happy hour food specials. They have pitchers of sangria too, yum! Very comfy with music.
Sea Horse Ranch restaurant – The Beach Club? Loved it. Next time will be sure to go for sunset. The waves are crashing right outside and the walls are all glass! Food was excellen! Think you had this in your blog.
Papi – on the beach in Cabarete, used to be a must do but we don’t think it is as good as it used to be. They are famous for their langostinos
Bliss – across the street and on the edge of the barrio (perfectly safe) is $$$ but is excellent. Nina and her husband own and run the restaurant. They have delicious wine to accompany your dinner. Nina is very good at helping you choose.
Cabarete Coffee – just up the street on the right has delicious salads, sandwiches, omelet’s and coffee. The coffee is cold grown and fresh picked from the island. Great for breakfast and lunch
Castle Club – is a must do! Up in the hills above Sabaneta go for the sunset and a delicious gourmet dinner. Call ahead for reservations 809-357-8334
Blue Moon – is just below the Castle Club and is a fun dining experience. Cuisine is Indian/island fusion. Sit in a tented area on the ground and eat from banana leaves Call for reservations 809-757-0614
Yamazato Sushi – very good reasonable located next to Gorditos. They share the same eating area so your group can order either and sit together.
Mojito Bar – on the beach in Cabarete. One of the first little restaurants you will run across. The Happy Hour starts at 4 until 7. Go early it gets crowded! Food is is delicious and clean 2 Mojitos for $ 150 pesos! A must!
Pomadora – on the beach in Cabarete. Great pizza, pasta salads
“Chicken Man” ( what we call him ) is across the street from Bliss in the barrio is open for dinner It is safe to eat so enjoy the true Dominican Arroz con Pollo!
