Description: Located at the beautiful Caleton Beach Club, La Palapa restaurant opened in 2003, becoming the first restaurant opened at the Cap Cana residential resort. After experiencing an interesting renovation, La Palapa by Eden Roc, began operations in September 2010, under the management of Solaya Hotels & Resorts, a private firm dedicated to developing luxury hotel projects, which operates the Caleton Beach Club, a private beach club in Cap Cana. Solaya Hotels & Resorts' premier property is Eden Roc at Cap Cana, the first Relais & Chateaux property in the Dominican Republic.Immediately after its first renovation, the new La Palapa by Eden Roc fascinated visitors with its unique proposal of pastas, fresh sauces, homemade bread, fish and seafood. La Palapa by Eden Roc is ideal for those who enjoy the authentic cuisine, where each dish is perfectly executed incorporating fresh seasonal products, without losing the simplicity, in a casual, elegant and relaxed ambiance. La Palapa by Eden Roc is a place to enjoy the best cuisine and the beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea. More recently, La Palapa by Eden Roc has been completely renovated by introducing a new Sushi Bar on the terrace of the restaurant with the creations of one of the most talented local Sushi masters. The access to the restaurant La Palapa by Eden Roc is free to the general public. For weekends and special nights, we recommend booking a table in advance. The use of facilities Caleton Beach Club (beach, pool) is reserved for members or visitors who have purchased an access pass.

“beautiful setting, very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

La Palapa is a very cute restaurant, place in a wonderfull beach, we went for dinner and lunch, and the food was very good, service fine, drinks and wines perfect. A little pricy but, you are paying the location. Excellent pastas and risottos. You must make reservations on week ends specially at lunch is always full.

“Great Outdoor Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Just returned from another visit to Cap Cana and had the good fortune of dining al fresco at La Palapa. The covered outdoor venue near the beach club high on bluff with the ocean breezes makes this an enchanting destination within the very limited selection of restaurants in Cap Cana. The Italian influenced menu offered an ample selection of fresh pasta and seafood. Of particular note was the pasta with baby squid. Also reccomend the Mojito cocktail, which was absent the syrupy sweet flavor, yet full of the mint.

“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We used the Palapa as our wedding venue, and loved every single aspect of it! We got married on Dec 29th with 60 close friends and family. The facility was spectacular. The facilities were clean, the food was to die for, and the service was amazing. They really got it down pat.

I must say, our wedding was made possible thanks to the sweat and diligence of our coordinator 'Ana Luisa Rivas'. She was busy running around while we enjoyed the day! To me she is a superhero.

Just 30 minutes before the wedding I realized I left my shirt at my hotel 40 minutes away. That is when Ana jumped to the rescue - due to the lack of time she went and grabbed me a shirt just in time for the reception.

Thank you Ana!

Because of people like Ana and everyone else, I highly recommend it!
