Ali's Surf Camp is nice.

I'm not fully updated on which restaurants are still there, but:

Front Loop: love the breakfast. Been there 50+ times. Number 7 is great (egg wrap).
Pomodoro: Great pizza (if I remember correctly Toby doesn't like it though - so might be just me).
Le Bistro: A bit more classy than the normal beach food.
La Casita de Papi: Good seafood. I think it is a bit overrated (always busy), but still nice food and my preferred place for seafood.
Los Gringos: I like the pulled pork sandwich - not the rest.
Yalla: Tapas. Quite expensive for Cabarete, but good food. Not a beach location though.
Fresh Fresh: Very nice place for lunch
Bliss: If you want to go for a romantic date (assuming you find one). This is "fine dining" Cabarte-style. Nice place.
Vagamundo: Really cool coffee place. A place to "hang" when there is no wind.
Cabarete Coffee Company: More of a take away place for coffee, but do serve some food as well. Closer to kite beach than the other places.
Gorditos: Very good value for money. Perfect to combine with Vagamundo.

I guess my favourite place on kite beach might have gotten new owners? I guess Tracy would know. I see it is called Vitamin D now. At times ridiculously slow service (slow is the norm in Cabarete), but I always planned accordingly so.. had some nice food.

Caberete got a surprisingly good selection of decent places to eat. There is a lot more places, but many of those (I can't say I have tried every place in Cabarete, but not far from it - obviously new ones might have popped up and things can have changed) are what I consider "standard" beach style quite average food.
Haha ironically, I am the new owner of Vitamin D Cafe and we removed the servers and now have counter service only...because we also hated the ridiculously slow service. But Vitamin D is nothing like Vacabar. It’s a healthy vegan and vegetarian place now.
