    Rancho Tipico

    A longstanding cradle for sustenance at Playa Las Cuevas, the closest point to Bahía de Las Águilas with infrastructure, Rancho Tipico does fresh seafood and some of the best mofongos (mashed plantains with meat or seafood; RD$400 to RD$750) you will ever eat. The stunning location is one of the most storied settings in the DR.

    Brisas del Caribe

    The kitchen here dishes out fresh seafood as the seasons dictate (though the seasons sometimes affect consistency as well). The perfectly sized seafood-soup appetizer (RD$190) has more seafood than broth, and the rich fish medallions (RD$450) are tasty (though they're not medallions). The terrace bar offers a good lookout over the waterfront.

    Restaurante Luz

    On the coastal road in the adjoining villages of Bahoruco and La Ciénaga, this good option has a tidy 2nd-floor dining room overlooking the shore and crashing waves, and a nice ocean breeze. It’s old-school Dominican, serving mainly grilled fish and lambi (conch) on tables dressed with crocheted tablecloths.

    King Crab

    Possibly the best food in Pedernales can be found in this seafood-centric restaurant that does a satisfying job with classic Dominican preparations. Best of all: the servers bring out a Colombian habanero hot sauce from the Haitian market that puts domestic hot sauces to shame.

    Among the best value in town for size, taste and price. Enjoy sit-down service at picnic tables on a streetside outdoor patio or order hefty grilled sandwiches (serious business in Barahona) from a stand-alone to-go shack just off the waterfront. You'll find tacos, quesadillas and burritos as well.

    Restaurant Pizzería D’Lina

    Caters to a loyal clientele who come for simple, home-style food. It's not exactly welcoming to the weary traveler, but cheap sandwiches (RD$80 to RD$250), decent pizza, and various meat, chicken and seafood dishes are served on a pleasant and breezy palapa-topped patio.
