Las Terrenas may feel like a Franco-Italian enclave, but it's a Swiss-German trio that offers one of the area's top dining experiences. Daniel, Lilo and Flo ensure your culinary ride here is a doozy: everything is made fresh on the premises and served in a romantic whitewashed colonial-style courtyard, open to the stars and complete with a trickling fountain.
Some molecular gastronomy creeps into the food here (in the deconstructed mojito, for example), but it's really all about fresh, simple flavors seasoned perfectly. A variety of menus is available to suit all appetites. The weekly changing chef's menu (three/five courses RD$1750/2250) is the way to go. No regrets.
