My husband and I visited here recently as I’ve seen this as the top rated restaurant/bar in the city and also very close to where we live. It is located inside of the Intercontinental Hotel in the city center on the third floor. It has nice views although not the best I’ve seen for a restaurant in the city. The cocktails were nice and at an ok price with their happy hour deal, it was $15 for the two of us. The menu was generic, coconut chicken, hamburgers, tostones.... etc the atmosphere was nice although not spectacular. Chairs and lounges are generic plastic you would find at any nicer hotels pool area. We didn’t try the food as nothing really peaked our interest unfortunately in such a plain menu. The service was pretty good, although we needed to actually ask for the food menu as it was not brought unless by request. This would be a nice bar to visit on a very casual night out, not recommended if you want anything more special than that.

I came to the intercontinental hotel for a wedding and I felt in love with the hotel since I arrived, the food and the service were above any ones expectations. Specially at the pool with the especial service of Dalton and Melenes. They are great and they make you feel very special. I had a very nice experience and I will for sure come back very soon. Highly recommended!!!

I’ve been coming to Santo Domingo for business for 7 years. This hotel and the Blu Bar, Market Restaurant and Steakhouse are absolutely on point.

The personnel is very friendly and accommodating. Santiago, Cindy and Jorge are the best. Visit here and ask foe them and you’ll know why!

The Best!!
