“Great Seafood dinner....”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

First time eating at this restaurant as we have heard mixed reviews, but have to say the food was excellent and plenty of it. Great selecting your own & seeing what you are going to eat. Most of the staff were very accomadating, friendly & personable. The waitress tho could have tried a little harder. We had requested 2 separate bills (2 couples), but it came on one and when we asked to each have one for some reason they said it could not be done....would not redo, just a definite no....did not ruin the meal by any means and if the food is always the same would recommend you try it.....prices are abit higher, nice atmosphere as it is on the beach and lovely in the evening.

“Great Choice”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This was great, the ultimate Dominican Republic experience. It is right on the beach and easy to find. The menu is in Spanish on a large wooden board. They have the fresh fish in a cooler for you to view. We had chicken, shrimp and fish of the day. They brought 3 appetizers, salad, homemade fried potato chip/french fries and the BEST breaded grouper (fish sticks). The main meal followed and you actually also got vegetables and potato with it. Then they topped it off with a light dessert. An array of banana, coconut and pineapples drizzled in chocolate. The cost for all this (4 meals) and we all had a beer or 2, was $67 American. The best part was that we didn't have to wait really long for the meal. Usually there, they are on "island time" at all the restaurants. They do not speak much English but we got by. I would have eaten here again but we ran out of time.

“Loved it and will be back”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

After 4 years of vacations in the area, we finally got to Captain Cooks on Valentines night. It is right on the beach, literally steps from the surf, which in the small flood lights was gorgeous.

You pick your dinner off a large menu board and then select the seafood you want from the cooler next to the grills. The service was outstanding and the food was just as good. I had the shrimp and was in heaven. Jean had the langosta, seafood medley and she was very happy she did. The "chips" they serve are incredible and all of our drinks were cold and quick to be served.

That night they had a 4 piece band walking through the restaurant playing requests (if they knew it haha) or bachata music of their choice.

All in all, I have nothing bad to say. We will be back next year.
