We love food. These are the best places to eat in Cabarete. It’s all about colorful entrées, tasty side dishes, thick sauces, creative snacks, seasonal ingredients and refreshing beverages. Living here opens our view – the North Coast of the Dominican Republic has quite a bit of everything.
It’s always a good idea to push ourselves out of the box or try something new. The various food styles, flavors, cuisines and presentations. There’s novelty and yet, also some nice classics to re-visit and relish in your favorite comfort food. So, let’s get our foodie hat on and try some of these famous Cabarete finds. Have you been to any of these?
Gordito’s Fresh Mex
If you were to ask several Cabarete locals to name their top 3 favorite food joints in Cabarete, you would hear “Gordito’s” over and over. Not only is this place a staple in the community having been in business over 15 years, the delicious food is consistently fresh, affordable, and served with a smile. We highly recommend their famous Mambo Fish Taco accompanied by their signature margarita.
Open everyday but Tuesday and Wednesday 12pm-7pm

Date night coming up? Make your way to Bliss! It started out with an Italian couple that arrived on the North Coast in 2011 and fell in love with the location (it took them around a week to find it and buy it!) They’ve been in the restaurant business for over 30 years, and have experience working all over the world.
Open only for dinner and offering freshly caught fish, American angus cuts, a great variety of homemade desserts, plus a wide selection of Italian wines. Chef Andrea prepares all the pasta, bread, and sweets while Nara will meet you by the door and take care of you throughout the evening. Bliss is also conveniently located in the Callejón. Can’t miss it.
Open Everyday but Sunday: 6pm-10pm

Do you fancy a charcuterie board? Duck in orange sauce? Grandma’s traditional recipe for onion tart? Say Yes! Right in the heart of Paseo Don Chiche- a gorgeous walkway leading from the main road to Cabarete Beach-we discover Le Bistro. It’s like going to La France without leaving the DR. What’s so special about this place? It’s a cozy spot with an awesome french food selection. The owner is often there so if you’d like some ideas on what to try he will passionately share good suggestions. Quality ingredients and a personalized service too? Merci.
