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).

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

WE walked to this little hut on the edge of the beach from our resort Paradisus....fresh seafood in a cooler beside the grill enticed us to try as the grill was charcoal fired up and ready....it did not disappoint. barefoot, beach attire, sun filled breeze in the air and a frosty PRESIDENTE local beer in hand...grilled whole fish with scampi...

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.
