We hope that you found our Christmas dinner guide useful and had a wonderful time in one of the recommended places. Now that the New Year is coming this weekend, we decided that some ideas on where to celebrate it in Dream City area may be helpful. This guide suggests more new places that were not mentioned in the previous one so you can choose from a wider choice. Wait no more, check our New Year celebration guide and make a reservation!


You may wonder why we haven’t mentioned yet Bologna Restaurant in any of the previous guides. It’s a well-known restaurant in Sosua specializing in the Italian food that has been open for more than 10 years now. So the moment has come and we are mentioning this establishment as one of the places to celebrate the New Year. Their traditional buffet menu including a great variety of appetizers, main courses and accompaniments will be served for RD$1280 per adult.

Furthermore, when we shared our Christmas dinner guide on our social media accounts, we received several comments recommending Chez Arsenio restaurant. So we decided to check this place and it turned out that they have an interesting program to offer for December 31. There will be 2 seatings at 6 pm and 9 pm which is a good indicator of a highly popular place. Besides, the live music from 6.30 pm will definitely add charm to the magic atmosphere of that night. Obviously, the menu will also be outstanding including 8 oz chateaubriand, rack of lamb or seafood RD$2000 per adult.

Some of you may know Warao’s project that used to offer underground food experience in Cabarete. You may have even wondered what happened to those guys that you haven’t heard much about them lately. Actually their talented chefs are working on different projects now. For example, Proyecto Deleite created by Angel Bracho is based now in Restaurante Maria in Ocean Village Deluxe villa hotel. So this New Year celebration is a perfect chance to taste their special fine dining menu. Exclusive frozen tomato gazpacho topped with gluten-free bread, mahi-mahi papillote in banana leaf with coconut and lemongrass sauce and many other gastronomic delights will be available for USD$140 per adult.


In Cabarete Otra Cosa restaurant joins the Dream City collection of the recommended oceanfront restaurants. The exquisite French cuisine menu in combination with an idyllic setting right on the reef will ensure a tranquil New Year celebration. The traditional French kir royal drink and other elegant specialties will be available for USD$75 per person. At the moment of writing this post, they had only 1 table available for reservation.

Apart from beach side restaurants, Cabarete can also boast unique off the main road places. Bliss restaurant across the street from Ocean Dream is a great example. Their brilliant chef Andrea has prepared a fantastic New Year celebration menu. Home made ruccula tagliatelle, fresh head-on grilled prawns and hazelnut croquant as a dessert are only a small part of this menu. The price of this gastronomic orgasm is RD$2400 per adult.

Besides, Cabarete is famous for its energizing disco parties. So if you had enough food for Christmas and prefer dancing to having an abundant dinner again, you can go directly to Cabarete beach. The dynamic music of the beach bars will welcome you and make dance till the sunrise. Moreover, the fireworks after the midnight are an exciting show not to be missed this New Year.

In case you would like to try some new disco this December 31, Meclao Rooftop Lounge in Puerto Plata can be your option. This new place at Galerias del Atlantico is already creating a lot of buzz.
