Good food, but a little pricey.

The restaurant is right near the resort I was staying at so it was convenient. The food was very good, but it cost about $75.00 for the two of us.

I gave this restaurant a 5 star last year but can't do so this year. Service was not very good. Our waiter was a "no show" most of the meal. The food was good. The music was good. Last year we had dessert - not this year. Last year we had complimentary drinks - not this year. We were a... More

We stayed at the Presidential Suites and our food left something to be desired, so we walked a few hundred feet down the beach through the horribly pushy peddlers. The restaurant affords the most beautiful view and had a cool setup. We were even serenaded by a very talented trio. But when it came time to order, there was a... More

You'll Love the food here but be careful with the bill because it's in Dominican Peso's if you bring USD. We opted for the full seafood platter! We were charged $92 US (including two Corona). Pretty pricey or ?a little overcharged but, food was great!

My boyfriend and myself walked here from Paradisus Punta Cana, it was a half an hour walk along the beach, which was lovely, and so worth it! Some family members told us that we had to check it out and I'm so glad that we did! When we got there we chose what we wanted to eat out of a... More

We all enjoyed our food and good service and had a nice atmosphere. Also some nice little shops outside the front door to shop in.

Had seen the reviews which suggested it was very good, we are not fussy eaters but this wasn't worth 110 USD and very salty the resort seafood we stayed in nearby was better

We took a short walk up the beach from our hotel and had dinner here. It was absolutely delicious. Our entrees where lobster and jumbo shrimp. Both were very fresh and my husband and I agreed it was the best seafood we had ever eaten. They bring you an appetizer of homemade chips, salad and fried grouper as part of... More

It is mainly marine food restaurant. Although place itself was not looked convincing, regarding hygiene specially, everyone was satisfied with their food. Taste was ok, presentation on the plate non existent. In whole, average.

We wanted to leave our all-inclusive resort one night so we ventured off and ended up at Captain Hook. It was only a two minute walk from our resort which was great! When we walked in we were greeted and seated right away. The staff were so friendly. When we were looking over the menu we were brought drinks and... More
