Many of the restaurants in node:85872 link Sosúa] can be found on Calle Pedro Clisante and are quite varied. La Roca (Calle Pedro Clisante 1, tel. 809/571-3893, 8 a.m.–11 p.m. daily, US$7–15) serves fresh seafood that is quite good. If you like barbecue, you’ll enjoy the Friday all-you-can-eat special for US$8, or try one of the shrimp dishes sold by the pound, sandwiches, pastas, or select Mexican dishes. There’s both indoor and outdoor seating on a patio.
La Puntilla de Piergiorgio (Calle La Puntilla 1, tel. 809/571-2215, noon–11 p.m. daily, US$9–25), the restaurant on the roomy, multi-leveled terraces of the Hotel Piergiorgio, cooks up Italian cuisine. Under the stars and high above the Atlantic, you will enjoy such dishes as freshly caught fish, cannelloni, steak in peppercorn sauce, and wood-fired pizzas. The food is good, but the view is amazing. It is a powerfully romantic place at sunset with the orange, red, and yellow sky burning over the immense ocean. Exercise caution when choosing your dining partner—you might be engaged to each other by dessert.
Piergiorgio doesn’t have the market cornered on sunset dinners. On the Waterfront (Calle Dr. Rosen 1, tel. 809/571-2670, 7 a.m.–10 p.m. daily, US$8–30) does it very well and with even better food. Popular dishes include filet of sole in orange sauce, sea bass meunière, conch, or a hefty filet mignon flambéed in pepper sauce. The ambience (aside from the sunset) is casual elegance under an open-beam thatched roof and open to the breeze.
Bailey’s Bar & Restaurant (Calle Alejo Martinez, tel. 809/571-3085, www.baileys-sosua.com , US$8–20) is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner serving Dominican (like sancocho) and international (omelets, burgers, pastas) favorites to expats and tourists alike. This is the perfect resolution to the dreaded resort-buffet meltdown that can occur after a few days in an all-inclusive. Head over to Bailey’s buffet in the garden for something new with better choices than in the hotels.
Britannia Bar (Calle Pedro Clisante and Calle Libre, tel. 809/571-1959, www.britanniasosua.com , 10 a.m.–late daily) is a long-standing expat favorite that’s clean and is popular with tourists.

Restaurante Pizzería Bolonga (Calle A. Martínez 33 and Ayuntamiental, noon–11 p.m. daily, tel. 809/571-1454) serves wood-fired pizzas, antipasti, a long list of very good pastas, and other Italian specialties.
