Dominican Republic Restaurants
 

Because there are so many types of food and drink offered on the island, dining out on the Dominican Republic can be a unique and tasty experience.

Restaurants in the Republic are unique and eclectic, serving everything from cheese pizza to the national dish of la bandera. The island's cuisine is influenced by many different international cultures, so most vacationers will be able to find a restaurant to tempt their taste buds.

Most restaurants in the Dominican Republic, especially in Santo Domingo, are somewhat formal when it comes to dinner attire. Long pants and skirts with collared shirts are normally worn to dinner, but in some fine dining establishments men are required to wear trousers and women should wear dresses. Before dining out, travelers should check with the restaurant to see if there is a dress code.

Many of the restaurants on the island suggest making reservations before your meal, and some even require it. Then again, others do not accept reservations at all. To ensure that you get a table at your restaurant of choice, call ahead to ask about reservations.

Depending on the kind of food you crave and which restaurants you visit, you will find that prices vary just as much as the cuisine. Budget travelers can find inexpensive but very tasty food for as little as $2(USD) to $10(USD). Those with more expensive tastes can dine at fine restaurants with meals ranging from $8(USD) to $50(USD).

Most restaurants add a 10 percent service charge to the check . If the server was good, most patrons give an additional 5 to 10 percent gratuity. Nothing goes farther than a little kindness on the Dominican Republic.

With the great mix of Hispanic culture and dishes influenced by international cuisine, dining out in the Dominican Republic can be a special treat.  Let your taste buds guide you in your search for island fare. Read the table below to search Dominican Republic restaurants by cuisine.
