Fresh outdoor restaurant!

We were shown a cooler full of fish and selected shrimp which was then grilled to perfection -- the seasoning was amazing -- we had a nice lunch and fantastic fresh seafood!

When you first walk in I was a little weary. All the waiters were pulling us in different directions, like they were trying to sell us something. They took us to the ice chest that held the catch of the day. I ordered a seafood combo for $56, my girlfriend ordered a filet mignon for $20. We sat down, and... More

If you are in the walking mood I would highly recommend walking to Captain Cooks restaurant for lunch and ordering the lobster. It is an affordable outdoor fresh seafood restaurant and is located right on the beach. It is a 30-45 minute walk along the beach from the Paridisus Punta Cana Resort. Seating is not a problem and you can... More

Loved everything - including the souvenir where they put our picture on a bottle of rum for $25.00. We ordered a ton of food - way more than we could eat for 2 - and the bill came to $108.00

Captain Cook Restaurant was located near our resort so we decided to try it one night. The food and drinks were good, but I don't thing it was worth the $100 is costs us.

Captain Cook was just a short walk from hotel and was absolutely worth the $100 we spent for a unique seafood experience. The restaurant DOES take credit cards and US dollars, so we didn't need to worry about converting money. When you walk in the wait staff determines what country you are from and will assign a waiter to you... More
