This is the type of place that you hope to find on vacation. Great food, great beverages and even better service. Matt and his staff made us feel at home from the first time visited. We were there enough to try just about everything on the menu and it was all tasty. If you do nothing else while in Punta... More

Loved it. Shame it cost us $70 round trip in a taxi to get there. The food was great, good price, more than enough of it. The owner is just a sweetie and had it been closer would have eaten there every day.

We stopped here for lunch & a cocktail after visiting the beautiful beach that it's located on. We sat with the owner, Matthew, for hours! He treated us like family & couldn't have been a better host! The food & drinks were absolutely wonderful! My husband had the best Mahi Mahi he's ever had! We had amazing service & the... More

We had just about everything on the menu and it was all perfectly cooked and reasonably priced. Our favorites were the ceviche and tuna tartare. Api has a very... More

Located at the Marina Beach Cap Cana, simply decorated but a real impressive place for his excellent service and amazing food. The best Grilled Fish in Punta Cana. Excellent Ceviche.

Api Beach in an absolutely splendid place to go for food, service, and scenery. The food is amazing and even something as basic as a salad was extraordinary. The place is right on the water, and there is a beautiful view of the ocean. The wait staff is lovely and the owner is such a sweetheart. Over all the whole... More

Friend and I walked over to Api Beach and were very glad we did. We ate the ceviche and Tuna Tartin. They were both good and very tasty. I especially enjoyed the tuna. It was an asian tinted flavoring and was just perfect. I have especially high hopes for Api Beach. It is sorely needed.

We were going to the beach, but we decided to stop in the Restaurant, Api Beach, for a beer and a Margarita. It was the best decision.

This is the real thing. On beautiful beach in Cap Cana with own beach chaises etc. Drinks are wonderful especially the Mojitos. The real star is the food. The owner suggested the Tuna Tartare and I was skeptical. It turned out to be one of the best versions I have ever had and I dine in many big city restaurants... More

Cheers for the review! Please remember us the next time you eat the tuna tartare in the States; although the food speaks for itself, it is never a bad thing to have it alongside the beach. Hope to catch up next time I'm in your town. Matty. More
