Tiny plates and bites - excellent taste

My husband and I stayed at the Paradisus Punta Cana and this restaurant inside was very beautiful.

We ordered the tastings. If you do this, be prepared to spend a couple of hours in the restaurant. The food was amazing and the presentation, beautiful! I recommend this restaurant if you are celebrating a special event or if you have clients you want to impress.

We were greeted and treated like VIP the second we walked in. They pay close attention to each table and the service was impeccable. The maître d highly recommended the tasting menu as opposed to the ala carte menu and we are so glad we listened. Each course was small but so incredibly good. I highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I ate here the last night of our vacation. We love going out to nice restaurants. He has more experience than I with Michelin Star restaurants but he was quite impressed. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was extremely affordable in comparison to other restaurants of the caliber.

We ate out for fourteen nights in The Dominican and this was our favourite meal. The food was excellent, the service superb and the décor beautiful. The people who manage the restaurant were lovely and friendly and the chef came out to meet everyone. When I expressed my delight I learned from Zoris to say: "Passion es el major restaurant...

Rodney, Carlos and Zoris did a wonderful job providing excellent service and explaining all of the dishes. They were accomodating and made you feel very welcome. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was romantic. Just right for a last night of our honeymoon. Highly recommend this restaraunt experience. 7 course meal was more like a 10 course! I was stuffed... More
