Just used tripadvisor to look for a restaurant close to where we are staying and up popped the Pastrata it was just round the corner and had great reviews well we went we met the owner/chef and what a find.

Friendly, great food, good service and great food, to find good food here can be a problem but this is a gem, everything prepared fresh on the order, portions good and cooked to perfection.

My family is Brazilian and like great food we had it all, fish, lobster and meat all perfection.

We will return.

Pastrata is amazing! The food is impeccable and the presentation of each course, whether it is appetizer or a FRESHLY prepared to order entrée, by the chef and proprietor , Ernan. Ernan's staff is very attentive and can't do enough to please the guests. Our usual waiter, Toapuin, goes above and beyond any expectation.
The 2lb Lobster is amazing and freshly caught for less than $30 US! The Bolonese Pasta is the best we've tried anywhere. The Ceviche is so fresh and perfect in every way!
We could eat there every night and have been several times for a fabulous experience!!

Please do yourself a favor during your vacation and visit Pastrata!!! We are Americans, who just moved to Punta Cana for the Island Life and Pastrata is better upscale, fine dining type food than you will find in the 5 star restaurants in the states, but in a beautiful relaxing atmosphere where Ernan, the chef, and proprietor will make you feel like a queen and king and come out to meet each patron personally!

We have been coming to this area for four years and this is the best restaurant we have found, gracious owner. We had Mexican food, authentic Mayan food, and Italian, it was all excellent.

You'd think five-star hotels would have five-star food. Not in this country. Get the heck off your resort, and get the heck into Pastrata!

We had the Mariscos para 2, or seafood for two. Three fresh lobsters (we were lucky, as he only had six from the morning's catch), two of the most flavorful fillets of grouper (typically a pretty boring fish) I've ever experienced, a pile of tasty coconut and butterfly fried shrimp/prawns, and a nice little salad. Prior to that, we enjoyed a bowl of guacamole and chips that were just the right level of spice, yet still overflowing with flavor.

Excellent service and food packed into a tiny location. But don't let that fool you. This is the best food we've had in the DR, and we can't wait to get back! Get the hell off of the resorts. Seriously. There are gems to be had if you know where to look. Start here!
