    Default Santo Domingo Restaurants

    In this case, the search button wasn't my friend. It turned up oodles of info, much of it old and lots of broken links and there doesn't seem to be current info.

    Tonight is the last night I'll have an opportunity to dine at a restaurant and wanted to make it memorable, not necessarily expensive. I'm staying in the colonial zone but I'm not limited to the area. I am open to virtually anything, Dominican or not. In my stay this time and last month, I ate at mostly touristy type places, i.e., Adrian Tropical, La Briciola, Meson d'Bari and another one on the Malecon whose name eludes me. Frankly, the only one that stood out was La Briciola.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I've always wanted to try Pat'e Palo and La Taberna Vasca.

    For a last night option Pat'e Palo is a great option.

    This place is always crowded so the food is fresh. The later you go, the more memorable it will be: https://foursquare.com/v/grands-cafe...57a593ca43ac15

    Paco's/Grand's is not exactly fine dining hermano!
    It's a "cruising spot" with greasy spoon diner food.

    I went to mexico city and asked a mexican friend about restaurant with good food, he said to me, if you see that is crowded its a good food, so I say to you the same, but here are right pate palo is a very good one, but i will sugest you El Conuco in Gazcue, real Dominican food there, you have the option to buy a buffe or a la carte.

    I like El Conuco cause they have a salsa lady that spins on a bottle for entertainment.

    I try and stay away from the Capitol. But damn near every Italian restaurant I have ever eaten at in the DR it has always been a great experience. And no, I am not Italian.

    Right off Maximo Gomez up from the Us consulate next to the Texaco station is Cappucino's which is my favoirete resturant in SD . Home made pasta and great steaks .. best italian. main dining room opens at 7. but if it is your last night pate Palo always gets rave reviews.

    It's hard to beat the Cowboy Fillet at David Crockett. I think it is the best steakhouse I have ever eaten at including Ruth Chris and the other big names.
