Great food, and service located in the BAM shopping center. I had a tasty Cuban sandwich and everyone else enjoyed their food too.

One of our personal favourites in the area. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive and best of all almost all of them speak English or enough to get by. Menu has everything from local cuisine to Cuban. Ceviche is a favourite and their fish dishes. A comfortable hangout for the night. And clean bathrooms!

I would highly recommend this place. My family of 5 came here on our first night in DR, we all got completely different food (sandwich, quesadillas, fajitas...not the typical American type, steak, and pasta) and we all loved what we got. A bonus was that the wait staff was extremely nice and friendly and the adults got free sangria or... More

The wait staff here enjoy their job. This was a fun place with good food and good service. The mojito is very good but inconsistent - a bit different each time but good every time. We'd eat and drink here again.

There are so many restaurants to try around here that we usually don't go back to one we already tried. This one was an exception. We ate here a few weeks ago for lunch and enjoyed what we had so much that we tried it for dinner. Service is friendly and very good. The chicken is awesome. Hubby had a... More

We also love the ceviche, whole fried red snapper and sancocho. Staff was beyond friendly. Ambiance was really cool, able... More

As most all the places in Punta Cana, the service is not good! It's ok, but not good! We order for a mahi-mahi, the dish served was not good... At least, the beer was cold. I don't recommend!

We shared the seafood platter, lobster, shrimp, calamari, muscles, Mahi Mahi over rice. Seasoning was excellent and definitely enough for 2 people. The lobster was so small, not much meat to speak of, but overall good dish and would recommend. Location is right off parking lot and busy street which was a disappointment for ambiance.

Tasty fresh Chilian Sea Bass for me and Monfongo for him. Everything was delicous, friendly service and reasonalble prices. Many selections on the menu, but when I saw Sea Bass for about $10 it was an easy choice. If you are in the area, check them out.
