Avenida George Washington (a.k.a. El Malecón) near Calle José María
Santo Domingo
Dominican Republic
Tel: 809 221 1764's insider take:

A restaurant cooking up slightly more elegant versions of typical Dominican fare? A dining room composed of multi-level decks overlooking the ocean on Santo Domingo's famous seaside boulevard? Sounds like a tourist trap. But step inside, and you'll find the restaurant packed with locals, the ultimate endorsement of culinary authenticity. The menu cuts across the Dominican classics, from sancocho, a Dominican stew of chicken, fish, plantains, yuca, corn, and more, to a range of tropical juices to mofongo, fried green plantains mashed with garlic and your choice of meat (and your choice should be pork). However, in a highly un-Dominican twist, the restaurant refrains from serving liquor in order to remain open 24 hours a day. But no one seems to mind; the ocean view is intoxicating enough.

Open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
