We were staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana for two weeks, so looking for some variety, we decided on the hotel's culinary pride "Passion" for dinner one night. We were all blown away, course after course, by how delicious and fresh the ingredients were, how impeccably cooked everything was. The tasting menu is of excellent value. Everything is delicious, Berasategui... More

Passion by Martin Berasategui at the Paradisus Punta Cana was a very different experience from all of the other dining options on the property. The meal was the most creative of the ones that we had during our time at the resort. The staff goes out of their way to encourage the $50 seven-course tasting menu because we think they... More

We spend the last evening of our stay at Passion and loved every bit of the dinner. We went for the 7 course tasting menu which turned out to be a good choice. Exciting dishes, great flavours, very friendly and attentive service, wonderful ambience. Thanks for that terrific experience!

My husband and I had our first meal here after arriving at Paradisis Punta Cana. The service was very attentive. Angelo our waiter was helpful in explaining the tasting menu and describing each course as it arrives. The tasting menu was amazing. The scallop, fois gras, and tuna was fanatic. The only thing I didn't care for on the tasting... More

I'm not sure how best to convey my thoughts on this restaurant. In some respects it was outstanding, but in others it was underwhelming. Let me start by saying that since this is in the Dominican Republic, and not North America, I think it's only fair to give them the benefit of doubt when it comes to the food, service,... More

Very good food. Service was outstranding with special attention from the local team (Francisco, gustavo, Lorewnzo, Marilin, Maricla, Angelo y Felix). All of them very kind and with service beyong our expectations. Strongly recommend this restaurant. Can not leave Paradisus Punta Cana without having this experience.

The restaurant was delicious. We did the tasting menu. Not everything was to my liking but 90% was. It's unique and it's obvious that the chef loves food and is truly passionate hence the name. The service was as to be expected exceptional. Truly extraordinary. Thank you Martin Berasategui you a truly gifted.
