Our dear resort Casa de Campo has just been pronounced as among the “best beach resorts for foodies” in the world!
In an article published on the online version of USA Today (www.usatoday.com), Casa de Campo is listed in the number 1 spot of 12 other resorts around the world named as the “best beach resorts for foodies”. And although we’re used to thinking of Casa de Campo as a tropical paradise and home of “The Sporting Life”, with no less than 13 excellent restaurants, there’s no denying that eating in Casa de Campo is a pleasure.
“With everything from a casual pizzeria to a lively tapas bar, Casa de Campo has something for every kind of foodie; those with a leaning towards celebrity will enjoy the Caribbean outpost of Le Cirque, sitting right on the beach and serving up tasty bites like fried fish sliders.” Says Jane Reynolds on USAtoday.com.

So where are some of our favorite places to eat out in Casa de Campo?
La Morela, Casa de Campo’s newest and hippest addition to dining in the Marina Casa de Campo is daring to do something different. Their “pop food” concept is a finely honed combination of popular dishes, hence the name “pop”… that can’t be neatly boxed into any one cuisine, except perhaps that of “good food”!
Our favorite dishes at La Morela include the Grandma Pork Ribs (RD$675), the Mahi Mahi green sauce ceviche (RD$470) and the hummus (RD$390). We also love their Brunch served every Sunday from 11am – 4pm. Click here to read more about Brunch at La Morela.

In the Caribbean, nothing beats dining at the beach overlooking the ocean, and that is why we love the Beach Club by Le Cirque located at Minitas Beach.
Some of our favorites at the Beach Club by Le Cirque include the Tuna Tartare, the pizza, the octopus salad and the pasta.
La Cantina in Altos de Chavon is one of the few places in Casa de Campo that serves Dominican and Caribbean options, so if you’re a visitor it’s a great place to try some traditional island cuisine.
We love the pork mofongo, a traditional Dominican dish made with plantain, as well as the ceviche. Click here to read a little more about La Cantina.
Located in La Romana, the food at Crema is worth leaving the resort for. They have the best deserts in town and also do exceptional sandwiches and salads, as well as amazing ribs!
