Samana Province, Caribbean Food Guide: 10 Seafood food Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Las Terrenas

February 20, 2020 Janean Rudisill

Reviews on Seafood food in Las Terrenas, Samana Province, Caribbean. Located on the northeastern coast of the Samana Peninsula, Las Terrenas offers miles of protected inshore waters and beautiful, undeveloped white-sand-beaches, lined with tall palm trees and pastel-colored fishing boats. Trade winds and the warm temperature of the sub-tropical Atlantic Ocean bring this part of the island year-round balmy weather. With a year-round average of 77 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperatures vary only 18 degrees between summer and winter.

The dishes you will find in our menu are a combination of traditional Italian cuisine, the new international flavors that culinary fashion brings us and memories of the fantastic Dominican cuisine. We want to offer you family warmth and a cozy place.

Last night we were so looking forward to our New Years Eve dinner with our family of 6 adults. We paid a deposit a few days ahead to hold our table as requested. The menu options looked amazing when we went to leave the deposit and the room was pretty and festive and by all accounts it should have been a delicious meal. From the very start, each corse was worse than the next. We all ordered different things so it was not one particular meal. Flavors were bland, food was very over cooked, fish and meats were dry and almost not edible. The side dishes at the buffet were nothingness yng special, also bland with no flavor. Nothing tastes fresh. The dishes reminded us of old fashioned TV dinners heated Ina microwave. It was a very expensive meal which we were happy to pay for when we read the menu. We left almost every course barely eaten. Dessert was probably the best part but hard to mess up chocolate mousse. For $600 USD plus drinks for 4 people, a real rip off. Nice people but they can’t handle cooking for a crowd. unfortunately we can not make everyone happy, in the crowd we have made so many customers happy, we had 130 bookings for that evening and we received super positive comments from our customers.Sorry for your case, surely something will happen that did not allow you to enjoy the evening.I apologize for your late reply and your bad experience which, fortunately, is a small percentage of all the service we have supported.

Very clean restaurant very good service and good food as well.A little more expensive than other restaurants but worth it. Located on the beach the night sea breeze was exceptional. Very good restaurants for special occasions as it is decorated exceptionally.We ate there twice during the week and both times found it to be a great experience.Looking forward to our return to visit this very nice restaurant.

Reviewed By Eric_Sierra

During the 3 nights, we spent on Las Terrenas, this was the only place we repeated!Food is really good, attention and service from the servers and the owner were great, they make you feel at home.On food, the absolute winner is the Guisado de rabo, a cow tail cooked with spices, tender and full of flavor.Also, the Ropa Vieja, de Moros & Cristianos, the fried plantains and yuca are great.About Mojitos, even they have an extense menu on options -we tried de passion fruit one and it was good- i prefer to stay with the original, amazing!Prices are fair, absolutely, we'll be back when we return to Las Terrenas.

Went with another couple. Setting is beach side and seating is comfortable. That's it! Nothing good to say about this place. Service was inattentive and lax. Food was terrible. Pass this one by. They don't want you. Staff are far more interested in gossiping than serving.

One of the best restaurants in Las Terrenas, newly remodeled dining room, good service, Italian owner so authentic Well prepared dishes, they have a wood fired over for pizza and to cook meat. Seafood is the best here and fresh , the seafood mixed platter for two is amazing , the shrimp also are huge and fresh. Thebkitxhen is clean and we'll appointed the chocolate cake is amazing for desert. Good wines and full stock bar. Pricing reasonable, pay cash and save on fees.

Reviewed By 764alfredoc

We decided to try this restaurant because of its proximity to our hotel. SO GLAD WE DID. The food is as absolutely top rate. Sarted with fried cheese with strawberry marmalade and honey to dip it in. Delicious. Then a small plate of fried shrimp. These shrimp come directly from the Caribbean beaches right in front of the restaurant. A flavor that is without description, you just need to try for yourself. I enjoyed a wonderful Angus Steak and my wife had the crab filled ravioli. Both OUT OF THIS WORLD. the staff, bartender and the owner are friendly and attentive. Oh and the view of the beach just yards/meters from the table. Romantic and cozy if your on a date. Wonderful for large groups as well. 5 stars and a top recommendation. Thank you very much

Xo las terrenas

XO is located in a very beautiful, refined and harmonious open space, offering the most beautiful scenery with the view of the infinite ocean, which, together with its delightful unusual details, makes XO a place where people keep coming back.

Reviewed By S P

We ordered several appetizers including the lobster with ham and croquettes. The lobster was chewy and dry. The chicken croquettes were okay, but the seafood croquettes were ICE COLD. When we inquired about it the waitress said she can warm them up, not replace them with another order, but literally microwave them. The shrimp pasta was okay, and the tuna Tataki was okay as well, although the rice that came with it was dry and undercooked. The wine we ordered was great. I’m not sure where all these great reviews are coming from, maybe it was an off night, but it did seems wierd that the restaurant was practically empty.

18 El Dieciocho

Restaurant serving an interesting menu with very upscale products! The chef has 25 years of experience in the New York market and he is a culinary arts graduate - 1992 from the Academy of Culinary Arts in Mayslanding, New Jersey, US

Reviewed By Q6764GMfranks

A true gem in the middle of mediocre competitionWe had dinner at El Dieciocho twice last week while staying at the Sublime Samana resort. While we mostly ate off campus during our stay, many restaurants ended up in the 'they tried but somewhat failed' category. Not El Dieciocho though. Phil and his team 100% know what they are doing - creating a laid back atmosphere for their guests (with and without kids), an amazing service attitude, spectacular food and this special touch the overall experience only true connoisseurs will be able to provide. Phil doesn't see this restaurant as a primary source of income but one where he can share his dedication to a great culinary experience with his guests. We went there with our three kids, all with very different tastes and we all loved it so much that I begged Phil to come back to the Tristate area where he learned his trade. His wine list is small but does the trick, his cocktails are amazing, hands down. Now for the food - we ordered pretty much all starters he offers and loved them all. Just perfect, ideal to share at the table, tapas style. His chefs also didn't let us down with the mains. Did I ever think I would have Osso Buco in the Caribbean? Well, thank god I did as it was one of the best I ever had. My son's Filet Mignon - spot on! Pasta, fish, meat...whatever we ordered was top shelf. Desserts anyone? Oh yes, of course.....homemade Banana ice cream so perfect in terms of natural taste and its consistency that I ordered an extra scoop of it....Anyway - you get my drift.....amazing restaurant, run by very nice human beings who care more about you than their profits, treat their staff very well and also know how to price their menu. I am so grateful we found these guys, turned out to be the icing on the cake, literally! Otherwise I would have thought that Las Terrenas is not a place for foodies......Phil - I stand corrected!Dear Q6764GMfranks,It was with great pleasure to have taken care of your table twice during your visit to El Dieciocho and to know that you "all enjoyed" your dinning experience with us.It is great to see how well your children knows "food and flavor profiles"; I enjoyed all the questions they had for me!Thank you for recognizing the desire that I have to share my culinary experiences with my guests and for asking me to come back to the Tristate area. I look forward to your future visit to our restaurant and thank you very much for an excellent review of your dinning experiences at El Dieciocho!Sincerely yours,Philip
