You would probably need to go to a Dominicano Restaurante. The only ones I know of would be in Los Charimocos (sp). I don't believe there are any in the El Batey section of Sosua.

As mentioned above, very few people ask for or want it.
Furthermore, if you are going to observe the higher gringo standards of supplies that you find in the tourist restaurants, as opposed to the Dominican comedors, then you'd price yourself out of the market, serving Dom food.
also they dont have much fruit in the tourist restaurants.....
I don't know where you come from that you get fruit in restaurants.
Where I come from, we get them in the supermarkets.
Other than a morning fruit plate, I can't imagine which fruits you're expecting to find.
and why do so many not have orange juice ...
If you mean true natural fresh pressed orange juice, it can't be done on a year round basis, so the restaurants buy the juice in a carton.

This is the opposite on the South Coast. In Santo Domingo and Boca chica you can always find a vendor with a cart selling fresh fruit. Fresh squeezed juices are also very easy to find, especially orange and pineapple juice.

In Sosua there is fresh fruit cart located in front of the bank near Hotel Europa. He is generally there in the mornings. Around noon he takes his cart back to his house to become a motoconcho driver.

The bigger the town or city, the greater likelihood of finding those carts, but rarely do they have true natural fruit juice.
They almost always buy the cheapest fruits that are rather sour, and they have to add sugar.
Of course, the OP's question was about restaurants serving OJ, and they would have difficulty getting sweet oranges all year round, so either they will serve the cheap stuff with added sugar or OJ from a carton.
