Overall the waiter was rude. We ordered lobster and so it came right away. We didn't have anything at our table. No drinks no appetizers no side dishes. That arrived after the lobster. Apart from that the concierge was rude and the restaurant was very untidy. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone😕Pernille Denmark

We happened upon this place by accident and the entire experience was so memorable. Sat on the covered deck overlooking the ocean. Our service was fantastic. (Omega) Asked about fresh seafood and he showed us fish, that were swimming, and asked us which one we wanted. Didn't go quite that fresh. He went over the menu with us while pointing... More

We took a cab from our hotel, 20-min or so from Iberostar. Walked up, at first disappointed, didn't look like much. Proceeded in the door, realized there would be a language barrier. The catch was listed on the board with prices-in pesos, and words in Spanish. The workers did not understand us at first and vice versa. The first thing... More

If you are looking for a fancy restaurant don’t come here. If you are looking for fresh authentic awesome Dominican food, then this place is a must in Punta Cana (Cortecito Beach). It is ON the beach. The fish is fresh and the lobsters are alive so you cannot get fresher than that. The grill is on the open view... More

Not super. Would not eat here again. Some things are pretty good and others are not that special. So just average I guess. I would not really recommend it.

We were looking forward to go back to Captain Cook after our first time in Punta Cana years ago. It looked a bit different from back in the day. More updated, shows that it had become more famous among tourists. Though I liked the way it looked before. Tables were setup on the sand, you could walk up and pick... More
