Pat'e Palo European Brasserie: pause on the Plaza de Espana

a must

In a historical building with a pleasant terrace and a bodega, this typical address is appreciated by both the Dominican bourgeoisie and visitors.

With a splendid view of the Alcazar de Colon, the most visited monument in Santo Domingo, this lively restaurant deserves its ranking among the best spots in the Zona Colonial.

During the day, you can come in for lunch or a break between museum visits, or, for the ultimate pleasure, have dinner under the stars, with the cheerful servers dressed as pirates, in homage to the restaurant's namesake. A successful enterprise with an attractive brasserie menu and a mission to be ultra-selective in the choice of its products, the Palo Pat'e is often overflowing with clients.

Cuisines range across the great standards of French, Latin, and Creole dishes but also integrate the chef's training in Asian specialties. You can find everything from a perfectly cooked burger with camembert and pancetta to grilled octopus with Caribbean sweet potato. Or perhaps you will prefer the steamed sea bass with organic cilantro oil and soy sauce. Don't miss the tastes of the island with the unusual chocolate truffle with rum, tobacco aroma, and Dominican coffee.
