Good

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!

Rodny was our server, very attentive and well versed in the menu. The flavor profile of each course was a trip into culinary paradise suited for its surroundings. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the discerning palate. Don't forget to ask for Rodny (yes, it's spelled correctly) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Food was absolutely exquisite. Taste, presentation, and service was superb. A must try if you are staying at the resort. A disappointment if you leave here without enjoying fine food

The foyer at Passion's entrance is very elegant and beautiful, creating an upscale dining atmosphere. The decor inside Passion has a lovely Parisian flair, which creates a very romantic setting. The dishes were beautifully presented and everything we tried tasted amazing. My steak was surprisingly tender, very juicy and flavorful. My husband's lamb shank au jus was delicious too. The...

It was not our first time, I and my wife, in a Martin's restaurant, but it was the first time in this one. In two week vacations at the resort, we went there once to experience the degustation menu and other to a la carte. We would have gone more times, but we just had no time. Everything is extraordinary,... More
