Tel: 809 688 9644's insider take:

Yes, the name really does mean "Museum of Ham," and those are real cured Serrano hams hanging from the ceiling. In fact, this tapas restaurant is so traditionally Spanish—with small-plate offerings like marinated octopus salad and beef carpaccio drizzled in olive oil, and a heavily Spanish wine list—that you might forget for a moment that you're in the DR. Until, that is, the live merengue musicians in the Plaza de España each weekend strike up the band.
