Unknown: "Whole Fish and Limes" Dominican Republic Restaurant Tip by clhomme

Dominican Republic Restaurants: 78 reviews and 59 photos


One of our days in the DR was spent driving our rental car around the south east. We ended up by mistake in Boca de Yuma on the East coast. Boca is a small town facing a tributary which empties into the Atlantic. There are a number of restaurants along the water's edge, easily 100 feet up on rocky cliffs, waves crashing below. We were there in May, and were the only people dining. The waitress brought out a number of large fish for us to choose from, which was then fried and served with fries and a bowl of lemons.

I can't recommend this enough - eating fried fish in an empty restaurant on the coast. All for around $5 - that included our beer.

Just past the restaurant is a small beach with numerous old but beautiful boats. For around $10 someone will row you into the tributary to see wildlife. Pleasant, fun and relaxing.

I get the impression the all-inclusives stop here, so if there's a bus in town it is likely very busy.

Directions: Along the Eastern road Boca de Yuma.
Price: less than US$10
