This restaurant is on the premises of El Cabito, which can be found northeast of Arroyo Del Cabo, a village in the Samana Peninsula; it is 2.0 miles to the east-northeast of Las Galeras.

Because the choice of sights and attractions isn't quite as wide, some travelers may want to call a cab for a wider range of options.

Besides the cuisine, something else to try in this neighborhood is Playa Madama, a nearby beach, where visitors can stop and truly take in the scenery.
