This restaurant offered some of the most tasty and freshest seafood that I have ever had. My family and I visited for lunch and it was so good that we had to visit it again for dinner. The staff was courteous and our entres arrived promptly. If you are a shrimp lover then this is the Punta Cana location to... More

The best seafood dinner I ever had. The personal waiter was attentive. The food was amazing and so were the drinks. Good value off the resort.

We ate here twice in the two days we spent in Punta Cana. We had the ceviche, spicy mussels, conch salad/ceviche and shrimp. After you order and have a seat, they bring you your drinks and then a basket of papas fritas, they are delicious fried potatoes with salt. They also brought us some other kind of special dish before... More

Lobster were over 50 bucks each! Food was just ok. I don't think I would return. The view was lovely. The waitress was a bit rude to us and we had poor service .

grilled with simple seasoning, but pretty expensive if you try the lobster and different fish. It came to 65 per person and we got lobster, shrimp, red snapper, grouper, and appys and desert.

We had read reviews on Cooks online and decided to take a stroll down the beach to check it out. We stayed at Secrets and it's about a mile or so walk. Great walk down the beach, get ready for the shop owners though. You will be hounded. As for Cook's, the atmosphire was great. We got the lobster variety... More

Service was good, but one of the lobsters we received was bad, they removed it from the bill. The home made chips were awesome, drinks reasonable. A nice wine list but very pricey.

Captain Cook was right by our resort on Bavaro Beach and the food at the resort was lacking. We decided to try it out. The food was amazing. This being right on the beach, the seafood is extremely fresh. I saw a fisherman bringing in several different fish that he caught with a speargun. My girlfriend ordered the fried chicken... More

The food was very fresh, the beers where cold (ask for Presidente, the local beer brand) and the price was very affordable. We had a big tray of grilled seafood and some deep fried fish and three was more than enough for three very hungry adults.
