Great beachside seafood restaurant

Fresh seafood cooked on the spot. Pleasant friendly staff happy to take pictures in front of their large bin of seafood. We ate here 3 times! Good place to get a meal out of the hotel.

We walked to Captain Cook's from the Bavaro Princess. Only took about 20 minutes walking the beach to get there. Our son & his girl friend went with us and we met my husband's sister & her husband there. The restaurant is right on the ocean, with local vendor shopping right behind. We had a wonderful server, very attentive. When... More

You pick your fish while it's alive on ice and then they cook it. The lagostinos were amazing. It's a great place for dinner on the beach. It's not cheap.

We had the best late afternoon/evening here! The entertainment was awesome. We hit it perfectly as they had just brought in a fresh dorado and cooked it up to serve us the best piece of fish! The homemade potato chips were great! The service was fabulous and the views were absolutely incredible! And, for the record, we didn't even go... More

After trying to get into Huaracan Cafe and being denied because they had a wedding there, we asked our cab driver where we should go. He took us here, saying the food was very fresh. It was. They had all the seafood in an ice bin so you could see what you were going to be eating. We got the... More

The authentic rustic ambience is wonderful. Try to get the table overlooking the water! The lobster here is the star although one of our friends had a steak which she said was gorgeous. It looked it too!

Food was great! Got to pick own fish/lobster. Fresh! Complimentary Mama Wanna drink. Very good. Make sure if you pay in cash and need change, get it back in dollars not pesos.

First off, it is Capitan Cook, not Captain Cook! Details, details! Best meal we had in Punta Cana and the bar was set pretty high before we went here! The grilled grouper and mahi-mahi we selected from the iced fish on display was grilled perfectly. Great margaritas and mojitos too. They brought out some appetizers beforehand, and the veggies and... More
