Welcome to Mares Restaurant
IT IS MY NEW CONCEPT OF SLOW FOOD AND DRINKS THAT YOU TAKE YOUR TIME TO ENJOY THE COMPANY, FLAVORS, COLORS, AROMAS, TEXTURES AND THE OTHER SENSES.
MY NAME IS RAFAEL R. VASQUEZ HEINSEN. I LOVE MY TOWN OF PUERTO PLATA. I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW INGREDIENTS TO CREATE NEW RECIPIES, PLAYING WITH THE FANTASY AND KNOWLEDGE TO END WITH UNIQUE COMBINATIONS LIKE:
DOMINICAN ROCK BABY LOBSTERS FLAMBE WITH RICARD (FRENCH ANISE), ONIONS, CURRY,GARLIC, TOMATOES, FRESH MANGO, ACCOMPANIED WITH STEAMED SOUR ORANGE AND CARROT RICE.
WE ARE VERY CREATIVE IN OUR DOMINICAN, BUT GLOBAL KITCHEN. WE LOVE TO BREAK THE RULES AND NOT FOLLOW THE RECIPIES, BUT AT ALL TIMES WITH A PROFESSIONAL CRITERIA.
WE ARE OPEN FROM TUESDAY THRU SUNDAY AT LUNCH from 12:00 m to 3:00 Pm AND DINNER from 7:00 Pm to 11:00 Pm.
WE ARE ALSO OPEN ANY DAY OF THE WEEK FOR ANY SPECIAL EVENTS YOU MIGHT HAVE, JUST CALL WITHIN 24 HOURS.
We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews after our first choice was booked that evening. What a great find! The restaurant was not crowded and we were the only table to sit outside overlooking the pool and it was like having our own private dinner. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. Food was great and we left stuffed! The appetizers are tasty and of generous portions - the beet salad and plantain sushi roll were both excellent choices. Wait staff was very attentive - overall a great experience!
