Santo Domingo Restaurants

Adrian Tropical Review

Hotel concierges still recommend this Malecón institution as having the best Dominican food (it's now a local chain of four). It's touristy, yes, but Dominicans still make up the majority of customers. You may want to try it for the three-tiered setting overlooking the ocean, as well as the opportunity to see if the excellent sancocho (a rich, meaty stew), mofongo (stuffed mashed plantains), and other local favorites are as good as you hear. The sopa de pescado (fish soup) is still excellent. The restaurant serves breakfast (from 7:30) and lunch (a buffet), as well as dinner: it's open 24 hours, and the clubbers come calling for late-night sancocho. Note: Be careful crossing the street here: use the crosswalk. At night on the Malecón, be alert for muggers, too.
