We had just stepped off a flight after a red eye with our one year old baby and were incredibly hungry. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, getting some bread and fresh veggies out right away, and our food shortly thereafter. Excellent seafood (shrimp...fajitas and guacamole) and drinks (margaritas)! Our baby enjoyed the food too! They even washed our baby’s bib and bowl after he was done. We met nothing but good cheer and smiles everywhere we went and the view is beyond spectacular. Thank you for a lovely welcome to the Dominican!More

We ate at this restaurant almost every day during our 11 day stay at Eden rock. We tried something different every time and the food was exceptional. Good flavor and excellent service. We cannot say enough about the staff, they were so very helpful and...knew what we wanted before we even wanted it. The chef even came out to our table to visit, amazing person and cook. Highly recommendMore

We loved La Palapa. The grilled fish is fresh and delicious. There are also plenty of Italian entrees, and a varied wine and cocktail list. With the waves and the breezed at your table, the atmosphere is sublime.

My partner and I ate here twice during our week stay in Cap Cana. We were not staying at Eden Roc, but if you make a reservation you can enjoy this stunning location. The service is second to none. Truly five star. The food is...good, it’s expensive for what is offered in my opinion but the value of the experience really comes through in the form of service and setting here. Not to say the food is bad, but if you consider yourself a foodie you might not get that WOW factor (paella wasn’t the best I’ve had). I will say, Wednesday night was “Heritage Night”, featuring a pre-fix Dominican menu, and it was so worth it. Staying in Cap Cana we didn’t really find a ton of authentic Dominican food options so this was a cool experience. Don’t miss this seaside paradise!More

There's a reason this area is deserted, restaurants are empty, and shops shuttered. It isn't COVID or even service in the entertainment industry there which is fine. I have been considering purchasing in the Cap Cana area and own two properties in Punta Cana. I...brought friends to see the sites and the backward processes, terrible terrible customer service experience set me against it. The ignorance of the security guards was the first barrier. Actually speaking with the guard station "Concierge" was unforgettable. She was rude, condescending, and had absolutely no idea of how customer service should be conducted. I needed to make a restaurant reservation she informed me. She needed to "register" every individual entering the grounds and copy their ID. When I called to actually make the reservation at la Palapa (she would not call) it's a main line - hotel reservation or restaurant? Restaurant. "I'll transfer you to restaurant reservations." That receptionist transfers me to the actual restaurant of la Palapa. You need a Dominican phone number and WhatsApp to receive the pass. It never came. I call back. Three transfers and the restaurant now isn't picking up. 30 minutes later, I'm fuming. I explain to the Concierge here that I had actually been considering purchasing here but not after this horrible experience and that I would never put my guests through this experience and I will be buying my house in Punta Cana instead. "Do whatever you want." She Gloated. Yes, Gloated. It was a disgusting experience and sets the tone for the empty streets, abandoned shops, and empty restaurants.More

We went to this restaurant quite a lot during our 5 days stay. It has a good and varied menu so there is enough to choose something different each time. I had sushi and similar for lunch with a nice local beer. We had grilled...lobster for dinner, with a shrimp cocktail as a starter. Good pasta dishes. Everything we had we enjoyed. Adding to the enjoyment is sitting by the water as the waves go past breaking on the nearby sand. The service was extremely good and friendly. There is one fairly significant negative here though. Whilst we very much enjoyed sitting in the area right by the sea, it looks very much like an addition to the restaurant. The main part is really very nicely decorated with very nice tables and chairs. The very modern section, white, much cheaper chairs and tables by the water does not have the class of the main part. This is a great shame and it would be great if they replicated the whole area in the same way as the main part. That said, would still very much recommend this place for both lunch and dinner.More
