Help with Rehearsal/Welcome Dinner

Recommended Posts

Hi girls, my biggest issue right now is finding the "perfect" rehearsal dinner spot. I have read hundreds of reviews and looked up every restaurant you could imagine. I am stuck!!! Since I have not been to PV in 10 years, it is extremely hard to choose. I really want a breath taking view and of course great food. Has anyone heard or been to Vista Grill? I was considering Barcelona Tapas too. Any advice on this subject would be so much appreciated.

I just want to make it super special.

 

Thanks

Christin

Restaurants with good views - BT, El Panorama, El Palomar de Gonzales, Vista - all are good choices...although lately i have heard mixed review of BT.

 

I'm having mine in about 1.5 weeks at El Palomar - we reserved a terrace and the view is amazing. It is also very "true mexico" - lots of bougainvillas etc. very quaint. I will let you know how it goes!!

We were in PV last week looking for welcome dinner places. Vista Grill s nice and they have a terrace up top that they use for welcome dinner/reception. They are very, very pricey.

 

Beign from New York...I am very picky about city views/food and I did not think that Vista Grill was worth the price...

Barcelo tapas has great food and a great view overlooking downtown. However you have to climb 4 flights of stairs to get to the dining area and that view. We have older guests that won't be able to handle that climb.

 

We stayed a villa that was very near Vista Grill but it was closed when we were there due to the swine flu scare. This resturant is up in a rural area but does have a good view of all of PV. I am pretty sure they are owned by La Palapa. We ate at La Palapa and the food there was excellent.

 

Has anyone been to Epoca? We are thinking of doing a sunset cocktail/appetizer reception there.

We had ours at Si Senor= AWESOME! Food/service/ambiance was amazing. They brought in entertainers that just worked for tips: mariachi and tribal dancers. They also made guac at table, served these platters of food on metal ships that had flames coming out... very cool. It was family style so everyone got what they wanted. They brought out more at no cost as needed. VERY COOL!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
