I have been here a few times with each visit being less pleasant.You have to beg for service and the food is only so so.. Jose Oshays is a better choice for a sports bar..

Good food, good music. Great to be able to sit with your toes in the sand while eating, and drinking.

Not a family place. Very college bar especially at night. Great for youths and the young surfer types. Not for family dining. Went in for lunch and staff were very nice and helpful. Chips were absolutely terrible though. Frozen Lemonade is cheap premade compared to other bars which offer fresh.

Great location on the beach. Pub fare and atmosphere of a tired sports bar concept from the US. Menus are tired food is mostly greasy pub fare in an open kitchen that you would never eat from in the US if you could see it. Female servers are very cute and lively, sure this is part of their business plan.... More

Kahuna is one of many places on the strip on the beach making it a cool environment. However, I had several issues with this place -overpriced -got our orders wrong -long wait for our food -food was not good -loud music Place could be so much better with adjustments. Lower the music a bit so we can hear each other.... More

Kahuna is one of the more diverse restaurant bars in Cabarete. It has a little bit of everything for everybody. Great food, great drinks, sports, an awesome cigar and fine wine shop, pancakes for the kids, etc. etc. etc. In the evenings it turned into a rave style night club that would put most South Beach spring breaker to shame....

Good location, nice chairs and tables. Food was ok but but watch the bill as this place is one of the most expensive for what yout get.

Owners are Canadian, so this is a bit of a meat-market style sports bar. Drinks have very, very little alcohol in them. but, we had a couple of fun nights here so it's worth checking out. Wouldn't bother with the food, there are better places along the strip if you want a real meal.
