Came as a large party for lunch and were taken care of very well. We picked out the fish which were prepared on the grill. The soup was excellent. Nice place to eat off the resort.

One of our friends invited us for dinner here and it was ok. The staff was friendly but lacked attention to detail. I'm told all the seafood they serve is caught that same day. I'm not really a fan of seafood with the shell on but it was ok. The first lobster I tried was a bit over cooked, very... More

After a long walk down the beach from our condo we came across Captain Cook. It's quite a walk from where we were staying and the beach is eroded along the way so it makes the walk challenging in places. We arrived and were seated quickly. I am quite amazed that the servers and waiters at restaurants in PC do... More

Really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The paella, the seafood grill, the coconut flavoured rice and ice cream were real treats. Everything was cooked to perfection - nicely grilled fish that was still juicy on the inside. The service was very patient ( we were struggling with our limited Spanish), explained what we were interested in and helping us... More

This was by far the best restaurant & food we had while in the Dominican! On the beach, just a short jaunt from Vista Sol. The fried bananas, the cheese, and the coconut ice cream, that all come with your meal were OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! I want more right now. I would go back to the Dominican for this... More

Great service, excellent food. Ask for Oscar, he treats you like family. We had the seafood grill which was made to perfection. The chips were amazing. We were serenaded by a mariachi band.
