Punta Cana Dining

Restaurants in Punta Cana offer all types of cuisines including of course authentic Dominican. You can choose to dine at a resort or venture out and try unique and exotic flavors as well as hearty home-cooking.

Elegant
The Jelly Fish Restaurant is a superb place for fine dining in Punta Cana. The scenic vistas are as wonderful as the cuisine it serves. It’s elegant yet laid back. Creative appetizers are among the favorites. Try the spicy sausages or the spinach pockets.

Portofino Ristorante offers authentic Italian delicacies. Risottos, pastas and veal with wild truffle sauce are a must. It’s one of the best examples of international dining in Punta Cana.

Tip: Make room for the ice-cream dream flambéed with Dominican rum.

Bordeaux is a must for those with a discriminating palate. This French gourmet restaurant is housed in the elegant Dreams Palm Beach Resort. Its décor is opulent with the Caribbean as a backdrop to large crystal chandeliers. Sole Meuniere is a favorite on the menu. If you decide to have dessert, don’t miss the crepes Suzette.

Another must is Chez Palace. The stylish modern décor is an ideal setting for the chef’s nouvelle cuisine. Don’t miss the salmon mousse or the grouper prepared with coriander sauce.

Casual and Relaxed
Most restaurants in the area offer a relaxed ambience. You can dress as you wish and enjoy superb dining in Punta Cana.

One of the most popular places for dining in Punta Cana is Capitan Cook. Don’t expect fancy dishes. Everything is super-fresh and prepared to perfection on outdoor grills. Choose a table under a palm gazebo and enjoy a Presidente beer. If you don’t feel like having fish, try the Paellas or Creole steaks. There’s no formal menu so people just ask for whatever comes off the charcoals.

And if you’re in the mood for Japanese, you’ll love Himitsu. It specializes in Pan-Asian dishes as well as Tepanyaki grill table foods. The preparation is a show in itself and a must see.

But if you’re looking for the best Sushi this side of Japan, try Akai. The chef creates sushi and sashimi platters adding exotic island ingredients. Try the tuna with mango or the fish eggs with chayote.

Romantics need not worry about breaking the bank. Gabi Club offers an intimate setting and superb gastronomy at affordable prices. Ask for an outdoor table for breathtaking scenic views. It’s a place that requires reservations as it’s always busy.

And if you really want to be creative, dine at Hot Spot. This unique restaurant is built inside an underground cave. The steaks prepared with chipotle are a must.

For authentic Mexican cuisine in this part of the world, there’s El Patio. All tortillas and tacos are hand made fresh upon ordering your meal. The strawberry margaritas are divine.

And don’t leave without trying authentic home cooking at Mama Luisa’s. It’s the way Dominican grandmothers cooked in the old days. It’s not the time to worry about calories.
