Who We Are

Paraiso Cocina Dominicana | MontclairNJ | About Us

Paraiso Cocina Dominicana was founded with the goal of providing top-quality Dominican cuisine to the people of Montclair, NJ. “We serve peasant food, rich in flavor.” Our food may not cost a lot, but you couldn't tell that by the taste! Open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM every day of the week, we offer dine in, take-out, and catering.

Before opening Paraiso Cocina Dominica, our owner noticed that most of the restaurants in the area were very expensive, too expensive for many people in our community to regularly enjoy. He believed that a restaurant should care more about food and people than just making as much money as possible. Already a lover of Dominican food, he decided to share his love with the community by opening a restaurant that served delicious, high-quality food at affordable prices.

Our head chef, Johan, has been cooking Spanish cuisine his entire life. His experience and love can be tasted in every meal he prepares. With a variety of Dominican and Spanish dishes cooked fresh every day, at Paraiso Cocina Dominicana every meal tastes homemade.

Our passion is in providing our customers with the best food at the best prices. You don't have to eat junk food from a national chain with such great food right in your backyard. Come in today and try out our fresh, home-cooked meals along with our family-friendly environment.
