    Default DINING OUT IN SOSUA

    Should you be visiting Sosua, even if you are staying at an all-inclusive resort, here are a few suggestions for restaurants, which you may enjoy. Dining out is for the most part inexpensive. For less than 200 pesos you can enjoy a good dinner in any of the places below. First on my list is La Roca. Located on the main street (Pedro Clisante) right beside the lane leading to Sosua Beach. The menu is varied and good. Service is excellent and the large terrace is a perfect place to watch the passing throng. Specials are listed every day on a sandwich board out front. If you face La Roca and look to your left you will see PJ’s, now operated by Jhonny Perdomo and his family. The quality and quantity is good and again there is an n attractive terrace and patio. PJ’s really deserves a try. About half a block up the street away from the beach is Mamajuana owned for many years by Swiss ex-pat Marco. Here I usually order weinerschnitzel, always good and filling. If you like mashed potatoes ask for them even if they aren’t on the menu. Recently Marco opened a small intimate bar right behind the dining area. It is air-conditioned and funky. Directly across the street is Bogies, friendly service and great Dominican food. A couple of doors from Mamajuana is the Britannia Pub operated by Barb and linden Andersen from Calgary, it is friendly and often busy. It is a hangout for ex-pats and offers excellent lunchtime specials (fish and chips on Fridays). Go another block and turn left when you see Harrison’s Jewelry Store. A bit further on the right is Mama Mia, which in my estimation serves the best pizza in Sosua. There is also a full menu of fish, chicken, pasta and beef. Service is good and it is inexpensive. Go back to Harrison’s turn left, go another block or so and at the corner of David Stern is El Toro, a steak house. Their beef is excellent and the prices reasonable. You may also want to try Lorenzo’s a recent addition to the local scene. It is on the same street as the ball field, opposite and a short walk from the entry to Casa Marina. Operated by Arnold, an Austrian who at one time operated Pavilion and PJ’s the food was good, but service even by Dominican standards was slow, slow, slow. My last suggestion, if you enjoy excellent seafood my choice is still Atlantico in Charamicos. Great view of the bay, excellent service and atmosphere. Atlantico is the only one mentioned which necessitates a taxi (50 pesos), the others are all easy walking distance from most hotels. Other visitors will no doubt have their own choices, however, to me, these are all good. P.s. Don’t forget to leave a propina (tip) for your server, especially if service is good. Enjoy yourselves in Sosua.

    Richard: Congratulations for doing what our former vice president down here, Dan Quale, could not do. You spelled "potatoes" correctly. Richard for V.P. in 2004 (so long as its not with Hillary).

    thanx Chris. I had the benefit of spell check. I did forget to mention that visitors to Sosua could contribute to the poor kids education fund at the Britannia Pub. Hopefully they will ask about it when they are there.

    Default Thanks for the excellent info

    Richard, it is exactly what I was looking for! What is the average price of a cold cervaza? Do any of the bars offer Canadian Rye Whisky? I will have a hard time deciding which places to visit as you make them all sound just excellent, but we will visit a few for sure!! Thanks again!!

    For the most romantic afterdinner drink have Buffalo Bill serve you his famous drink called "The Buffalo Bill" at (I forget the name - is it "La Punta" ?) The place is where George always ended up with his horse drawn cart. He had advertising for the place on his cart too. Tell Buffalo Bill you heard about him on the internet.

    I think you will find the average price of a presidente is 25 pesos, sometimes a little higher. Most likely you will find CC available at most of the good dining rooms. keep in mind too that the percent as it is normally called, 10% service and 8% tax is required by law and is added to the price although in some cases it may be included in he price. As John mentions, Werfront, now operated by Bob White and Horst of Sammy's fame enjoys a good reputation. There are so many good places one post can't cover them all. No doubt others will have their own favorites.
    Bon appetit.
