    Don Pepe is good, crowded but good. Their Paella is really good, pricey though.

    I know when in Dom Rep it is great to visit local restaurants. But I went to Tony Romas there because I was a bit homesick. And man they took it to another level. I had a great time. I remember the small one in the Malecone Center. This new one is huge and the staff were great, food was excellent and price was right. Just saying....Davey Crockets was a nice steak house good place for a beef hunger. In Juan Dolio, Paladart and El Meson are winners! Also for some excellent local fast food the Corner of Pasteur and Ave Independencia Villar Hermanos bakery has a whole selection of great stuff. I also like the Grand on conde and Independencia, Lunch trays are very good, and try the Issy Iced Cappuccino sweet but OMG!

    Il Cappuccino has been my go to restaurant for years. Got to know the owner and they prepare whatever I request. Once you find a restaurant like this you become a fixture. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    El Meson is a oldie but goodie. Haven't been in awhile but always bring our out of town guests there. Good food but even better atmosphere. Miss the days when Vesuvio use to be really good and the place to go.

    Ahhhh Vesuvio........in another time..........that was the place to see and be seen in Santo Domingo.........and the food was even great back then........until......

    Don Pepe when it was in Gazcue.

    Sully's for seafood.

    The old Chalet Suisso or was it Suisso Chalet......when Peter ran it.

    My other go to place that will not make a top ten list for snobbery........but I always had a good meal there is Vizcaya.

    Certainly others.........Mediterranean place whose name escapes me at the moment (Sharazad?).


    Respectfully,

    I agree about Vizcaya, you always see lots of guys have secret lunches with their secretaries there and it's the kind of place that you could imagine being in a scene from a spy film.
