Fodor's Expert Review La Palapa by Eden Roc
If you crave waterfront dining, this palapa-roof restaurant is a great option, exuding Caribbean charisma with an Italian accent. The aromas promise exceptional seafood specialties, even hard finds like baby octopus, which is deftly prepared. The quality of the ingredients is immediately apparent from the delectable gnocchi to the authentic Parmigiano Reggiano that can be found in many dishes and the wines by the glass from the international list. New are some Dominican specialities, including mofongo. The manager and waiters are professionals, yet the atmosphere remains as casual as the pareos on the beachgoers who drop in for lunch.
