Best food of my life!

Highlight of the entire trip. So lovely and fun, all while being incredibly classy! The Bacon foam, the wine pairings, the service. All were world class and very inviting. I never felt like I couldn't fully enjoy the excellence I was surrounded by.

Living in NYC and having dined in all of the fine restaurants throughout my life I have never been compelled to write a review. Passion from start to finish was a journey of absolute perfection. If God was to eat food I believe he would seek out Chef Martin Berasategui. Every bite of each course danced with different flavors in... More

At 27, we were the babies at dinner when we visited Passion, and our table crew was immensely patient and kind to us. We love good food but aren't necessarily

Such a great experience and now on my top 5 best restaurants!! Service is premium and the food was absolutely brilliant. Certainly a diamond surrounded by good/average resort restaurants.

The presentation & service were great, but food was salty to me & my husband, but not to my son-in-law.

Be prepared to stay for 3 hours whether you are doing the tasting menu or not. They push you toward it. It was pretty good just way too long, but they try hard. This is the only decent beef you'll find there being angus. It is an experience for $70.00 pp. and no coupon will be accepted there.

I brought my wife here during our recent stay at the Melia The Level Resort. It is our second time here, the first time being during our honey moon in 2013 when we stayed at the Palma Real Resort. Everything from food, service and decor were amazing. It is an extra cost but well worth every penny!! The food here... More

We chose the Paradisus Palma Resort because of this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. Our servers Julio Cesar and Josi Rivera were fantastic. Do not miss this experience! We dined there twice.

We enjoyed the best dinner and dining experience we have ever had. Our hostess Zonis seated us at the best table in the house. The wine steward, whose name I do not remember, first served an excellent sparkling wine (champagne) from Spain. Sergio and Jose, elegantly clad with white jacket and matching gloves, began the service. Together with Sr. Sengio,... More

Chef Martin Berasategul manages to infuse his love of beautiful food into the Dominican fair. Each dish was more interesting than the last!
