Great seafood!

Discovered this restaurant the latter part of our trip. My friends and I went there three times. The foods were amazing. Can't go wrong with the amazing grilled seafood platter. If paella is on the menu, order it. The staff was very friendly. Fousto, the manager, made us feeled very welcome... read more

Everything was wonderful including the service. We wished we would have found this the first day. There is a variety on the menu, including imported beers that are chilled to perfection

I just got married at Kukua Restaurant a few weeks ago. Everything was perfect! Bego, Toni and the entire staff were a dream. They made the day beautiful, easy, delicious and fun for all 50 adults and 16 kids! We had a bi-lingual group, so we had our ceremony on the beach with both Rick York (an American minister who...

Anyone who has ever traveled to the DR knows that customer service and attention to detail can be lacking. Not so here at this most excellent restaurant. The service, the view, the food are without question the basis for this being one of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean. This place is managed by a Cuban/American named Fausto. Fausto is...

The Kukua Beach Club is nestled between the Don Pablo Esmeralda All-Inclusive resort and the Riu All-Inclusive resort. We took a short walk down the beach to the right of Esmeralda and entered the restaurant from the pool/beach side. We found ourselves searching for a nice dinner when we were told by the staff at Don Pablo Esmeralda that there... More

A large group of us went to eat, and the meal started off great - but things started to go wrong when it took almost an hour and a half for some guests to get their meals. When the bill came, management told us that we could split our checks by coming up to the register and letting them know... More

I got to know about Bego and her picturesque Punta Cana restaurant with the private beach, on the recommendation of the photographer, Renaud, who I was going to use to secretly photograph my marriage proposal. (Look up “Photo Souvenir” on BestWeddingDestinations.com for reviews of his services.) Renaud suggested I contact Bego, and so I did, via e-mail. Bego responded immediately,... More
