Ok, not much luck on my last post, so.......

I'm looking for a nice seafood place within a reasonable cab ride distance of my Colonial Zone hotel....I need to entertain business clients and lobster/grouper/paella is what I'm looking for......I know of a great spot on the beach in Boca Chica but that's too far.....

A/C would be nice, decent service, Presidentes for the crew, the Capitan want's Brugal Extra Viejo.....

These are not casino, crowd loving types

Don't care "how much"....it's not a question for this event...besides anything in the DR has always co$t less than what I used to dropping.

Gracias por su ayuda......

Vesuvio`s on the Malecon, between Maximo Gomez and Ave Lincoln, seafood Italian style. Good bar, good service, most customers in the evening in jackets.

Also possibly the restaurant in the basement of the Intercontinental Hotel, below the casino (and no, you can't hear or smell the casino there). Quiet - they have different types of food on different nights - they have paella some nights, and I would give two thumbs up to their Argentinian night - skewers of different types of meats, etc.

Actually, the taxi will charge you about the same while you stay on the same side of the Ozama bridge. For seafood, I like Sully's in Los Prados, in front of Price Smart (Charles Sumner Av.). Samurai, the Japanese restaurant, has good seafood too, off Lincoln.

I agree with La Bahia, great Lobster. As for Mason de la Cava I would not recommend.

I believe the restaurant below the Intercontinental closed recently, or at least no longer serves the rodizio style...

There's an awesome Spanish seafood restaurant on the street between the Intercontinental and the new luxury tower (Calle Pasteur I believe)...1 or two blocks past Independencia. the restaurant is named, I believe, Don Pepe...I was only there once but it was EXACTLY as you described... GREAT paella, awesome seafood and shellfish, right on display, great sangria, excellent "old school" style service (waiters in dinner jackets, etc) and actually VERY reasonable...never super-crowded, and close to the Colonial Zone

THANK YOU ALL!!! I appreciate the suggestions, Mason de Bari! JaguarBob when I was in town in June I went in for a few beers, great AC and a real cutie behind the bar.

I love conch too.....and it's staggering/stumbling distance from my hotel

THANKS AGAIN, I'll keep the list!

Maison de Bari... my favorite restaurant in SD...! And exactly as JB said - the Conch Criolia and empanadas are really, REALLY good! Also, they have several different sauces for their steaks...Ive tried most of them and they've all been great as well...just don't expect a 1.5" thick NY strip!! ;)
