Las Brisas del Caribe
Las Brisas del Caribe Review
This dining room, which was built by Catholic medics in 1947, has an old-fashioned charm. It's upscale-retro and pricey by Barahona standards, with professional service that can be slow. Appetizers, such as the flavorful pumpkin soup, are well priced, however. Fresh fish is the obvious choice here, with shellfish a known specialty. A French expat always orders either the paella (for two) or the wonderful garlicky parrillada mixta for two, which has grilled lobsters, squid, shrimp, and lambi (conch), for about US$25. That is living la vida buena! The restaurant is on a knoll with a loop of a driveway at the end of the seafront; the views of the water are best from the open-air terrace.
