    Default Nice spots to eat in Santiago?

    What are some good spots to eat in Santiago? I'm talking anything from diner type places, to table service restaurants, etc. I remember last year going to this place in Jamao, called El Molino de la Cumbre. I do not remember how we got there (a friend drove us) but we were spiraling up and up a road until we got to the top, and the restaurant was amazing. Great food, and it's like on a mountain so there are stunning views of Santiago. This is it right here:

    Places to go: El Molino - Restaurant - Ready for DR - Dominican Republic Real Etate

    So what places would you guys recommend?

    (PS, to anyone whose been to El Molino, I would like to visit again but don't remember exactly how we got there. All I know is that it's in Jamao. Could you explain?)

    First of all, do a search of "restaurants Santiago" ....

    As for how to get to El Molino...let me assume that you are in Santiago.
    1) Go to Moca and in Estancia Nueva turn left and go towards San Victor. At the major intersection where there is a Police Station and a big fuel station, there are signs that indicate JAMAO. Turn right.

    2) Go to Tamboril, keep going to Canca La Reina, Canca La Piedra etc, until you get to the same intersection and turn left.

    Go up the hill until you get to El Molino. (A little further up is Cafeto, also good food.

    I'll be in Moca in August. If I must pick between El Molino and Cafeto, what's the best bet?

    Both are good, but my choice would be El Molino.

    If you've been to El Molino as well, how would you compare the two?

    I have been at all three more than once. I like El Molino best, than Cafeto and Cumbre a close third. All are good. Cafeto is big on Crepes, so if you like that go there. El Molino had pretty good imported beef. Cumbre has some nice wines, but I have not been there since El Molino opened.

    If your in Santiago you need to stop in to Hooters in the terramall, just for the sites and cold beer, and yes they also have food I believe.If you go say hello to Yasmin for me.

    There are lots and lots of good places to eat in Santiago. For quick inexpensive local fare try Max Delicias or La Marchena. For fancy expensive there is Pez Dorado. I could go on and on.
