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.

Like most bars on the beach in Cabarete, prices are higher than in Sosua, and the servers are totally indifferent, don,t waste your money on a tip , as they don,t even say thankd

The food is good. Best thing to me is their fried wings (2 for 1 on wed). Waitstaff is as good as it gets. The most popular dance club in the city (Oh Ho's) is next door, gets busy @11.
