Our favorite dining experience in Cap Cana!

La Palapa is part of the Caleton at the very tip of Cap Cana. It sits right on the edge of the ocean with a beautiful view. It is small-- so make reservations. Every food choice we made was delicious! From the sushi starter, calamari, fish or beef entrees to the Bento box my daughter in law... read more

We went to the Palapa for a late lunch. The restaurant sits right on the bay so you have a wonderful view and the service was outstanding.

Although the food is not bad you really go to this restaurant for the setting. Great location on the sea, you can hear the waves crashing. Be sure to wear plenty of anti-mosquito spay, though the restauarant will provide it if you forget. Food is quite good but as you would expect not cheap. Service was very good. Worth a... More
