There are great restaurants in every area of the country. If you’re staying in Santo Domingo, try El Conuco near the Renaissance Hotel. The food and service are great, and so is the ambience.
Neptuno’s is the place to go for fresh seafood in Boca Chica, which is an hour’s drive from Santo Domingo. It’s the place the locals go for seafood.
Café Bellini Mare is a trendy restaurant in Plaza Portofino, at Casa de Campo. It’s a great place to people watch; the seafood is fresh and prepared Caribbean style.
The menu that On the Waterfront Restaurant offers its guest is one of the best in the Dominican. Seafood, steak, and chicken are prepared Creolla style, as well as Cajun style, and the vegetarian plate is outstanding.
Restaurant Morua Mai is another excellent choice in Sosua. The décor is a neo-Victorian style, and the pastas, pizzas and sandwiches are all great choices and the live entertainment is an added treat.
