At the suggestion of the guest service manager of Paradisus Punta Cana we decided to dine at the Fuego restaurant located in the lobby area of the resort. We were greeted a the the door by the restaurant manager who thanked us for visiting the restaurant and we were quickly escorted to our table. The decor of the restaurant is hip and modern and one could easily see this restaurant being in New York City or a city in Europe.
We opted for the tasting menu. We were delighted with each new course and they were all presented on a different size and different shaped plate. Presentation of each course was artistic and beautiful and almost too nice to eat. Our waiter was first class all the way as wine and water glasses were filled and silverware was constantly changed for each course. Service was outstanding. Make sure to tip the wait staff.
The food was world class in presentation and taste. Each course blended different and unusual parings of ingredients to create new flavors to excite the senses.
Our tasting menu included a chilled pea soup with cod and lemon yogurt, a grilled pampano stuffed with lobster and asparagus, and was followed by a beef filet with gnocci in a parmesan cream sauce. Wow.
We ended with a dessert of tiramasu with amaretto essence . Each course with its blend of flavors was not only a delight but a memorable dining experience. We have been to Punta Cana 7 times and have traveled all over the Carribean and Fuego rates as the best dining experience we have had to date. Chef Martin Berasategui has created a wonderful dining experience you cannot miss.
