We stayed at Ambar Blue but decided to venture out one day for lunch. We didn't realize you can walk here - it is about 2 miles on the beach, but that's walkable. We took a taxi. The resort staff was freaking out that we were leaving but assured them we just wanted to try something else for change. The... More

I use to manage restaurants in Canada and this is by far the best seafood restaurant I have ever eaten at! Caught fresh every morning. They bring the fish you pick and bring it to your table to show you. Then they cook it to perfection. Full A-Z meal with drinks for 4 people around $100 US. Worth every nickel.... More

Have I mentioned the location? It is beautiful! Right on water...Sand flooring...Wow! No shoes, No problem. The fresh seafood is wonderful. We had the mixed grill. The point at this icon is to sit and relax while enjoying the view, drinks and good food. Yeah the service is slow but who really wants to leave quickly? Yeah it is pricey.... More

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in punta cana last week when we came across this gem! The entrance was a little sketchy at first, as we entered from the street, but once we were through the narrow passage it opened into a beautiful courtyard with tables as close to the ocean as the tide would allow. We... More

Highly recommended. Great service and food, thoroughly enjoyed the seafood grill platter. Remember to ask about the tax added to your bill before you order

Was in Punta Cana on vacation with my family for 10 days and wanted a nice spot for a date night with my husband. The front desk employees at my resort recommended this restaurant and I'm glad he did. For starters you pick what you want to eat from a big menu and everything is fresh. I asked PRIOR to... More
