You don't have to be a speleologist to appreciate the originality of a 'caved' restaurant. Since 1967, the restaurant El Meson de la Cava attracted both Dominicans and tourist from all over the world. The cave is built in a natural lime stone created millions of years ago by the "waves action" while the coast line hugged this cliff. The grotto is now home for this special restaurant where beside many other, you can enjoy a very popular local rice dish - a unique version of Risotto, served with Green Fried Plantain or a traditional shrimp in cilantro cream sauce, a Dominican delicacy.

It is said that inside this limestone hideaway, pirates have been hiding centuries ago. But don't expect a bat-smelling slimy cavern with water dripping from the ceiling. This is an underground restaurant that shines.
