Once a simple seafood spot, beautifully situated on the water, Neptuno's is now sceney, pretentious, and overly decorated but with South Beach flair. A ladder goes down to the sea from a platform for daytime dips, but there are no chaises. Most of the food is, of course, from the sea, creative, and not inexpensive. The menu includes Asian dishes as well as a range of pastas—mainly with shellfish, grilled lobster, and even a few grilled meat offerings. Service can be efficient or not, but Sunday afternoons are like rush hour. Neptuno's is a good option for a waterfront lunch or romantic, terrace dinner outside of Santo Domingo, but if you are not a member of the capitaleno "in crowd," you will not be treated as well. Also, know that on the long deck is a VIP section with three bubbling Jacuzzis.You will need reservations and must agree to $500 worth of food and bev'!
