    Default Waterview Restaurants on the Malecon

    Can anyone recomend any reasonably priced resaurants with a view of the water on the Malecon? I probably would prefer dining inside with a/c if possible as the temperature in late afternoon has been pretty oppressive. I will be in the capital for four days in June and hope to try a few new dining experiences. Thanks

    Adrian Tropical is probably your best bet on the Malecon if you want a view of the water when dining and want a/c.

    yes, Adrian Tropical, and for the waterside view maybe D'Luis as well, but I don't think they have inside dining.

    Restaurant Jardin Suizo on the Malecon across from the water is excellent. They have been opened for many years and in my opinion have the best food on the Malecon, if not Puerta Plata.

    For lunch they have 4 or 5 specials with soup or salad for 200RD. The chicken soup is tremendous.

    If you need directions the number is 586-9564. Ask for Danny, he speaks four languages, including English. He is the owner’s son.

    Default Malecon in Santo Domingo

    I'm looking for information about the Malecon in Santo Domingo. I didn't say it in the post because the question was posted in the Santo Domingo travel forum. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for the replies. Aproximate location or address would also be helpful. Thanks again, Brian

    But this brings up an interesting question. How many malecons are there in the DR? I know of:

    Santo Domingo
    San Pedro
    Puerto Plata
    Samana
    Barahona

    Any others?

    Default View at Vesuvio ?

    What about Vesuvio? Does it have a view of the water? I read a review on the web that mentioned " a great view and great peple watching" but the review was translated from German and not very enlightening.

    Vesuvio serves fairly ok Italian food. The have an open deck on the second floor (American floors!), overlooking the Malecon and with a view of the water. This is an open area, without A/C.

    Sometimes they have live bands, usually on Friday and Saterday nights.

    Personally, I like it because it has less traffic sounds than the first floor.

    "D'Luis Parrillada" has a nice view of the ocean.

    Vesuvio does not have an ocean view.
