Emerald Beach Club Review

In the epicenter of Cabarete Beach, this restaurant manages to be barefoot and carefree, yet sophisticated and stylish. You can dine seated in comfy white banquettes under a towering palm-thatched roof or recline on silk-tasseled Bali beds in the sand. An extensive menu offers everything from Colombian crab empanadas to Peruvian ceviche, but whatever you choose, it's the seafood that shines. The day's catch will be brought to you for your choice, and the chef will ask how you want it prepared and if you want a sauce. Say yes, particularly to the anise-laced curry-cream sauce. Equally recommendable for dessert are the trio of crème brûlées (vanilla, passion fruit, and coconut) and flan made softer with cream cheese that rivals any cheesecake. At 11, a DJ cranks up the music, and dancing becomes more important than gabbing and eating.

    Emerald Beach Club Review

    This is the worst place that you can go in Cabarete. The service in Emerald Beach Club is far from the service in the rest of the restaurants here. First, we could nor order food, though the people behind us were able to do so at the same arrival time. Second, we ordered a drink and the server assured us we were getting what we ordered (Stolichnaya), however both times the drink tasted different and the check brought to us said something else (Eristoff). Once we change servers in Emerald Beach Club and we ordered a drink of Stolichnaya, he told us we could only get it by the bottle, confirming that we had been robbed.
    Needles to say, if you ever go to Cabarete, I recommend going to a different restaurant or bar, there are many other options besides this "want to be" restaurant.
