I was surprised to read the other not so great reviews. We went on recommendation. from a employee at our hotel. Really enjoyed the food. Had mostly seafood - snapper, mahi mahi, fish sticks, coconut shrimp. All very good. We were there on a windy...night so no real view but the structure itself is something to see.More

I recently had the displeasure of dining at the Jellyfish restaurant in Punta Cana, and let me tell you, it was a real sting. The food was exorbitantly priced for the subpar quality we received. The lobster was overcooked, and the staff didn't even provide...us with the necessary tools to extract what little meat there was. The pasta was completely lacking in flavor, and when my mother asked for a regular Presidente beer, they brought her the less popular Presidente light. But the real kicker was when we received the bill and saw that we had been charged for two daiquiris that we didn't even order. When we inquired about it, the staff admitted that they had put the items on our tab because another table had jellyfished out on their bill. And to add insult to injury, they did all of this knowing that my parents were celebrating their anniversary. We were given no discount on the bill and when my mother tried to complain at the bar they summoned a man with a seaweed pitchfork to chase her off. I would not recommend the Jellyfish restaurant to anyone, and I would give it a solid one star rating. Don't get caught in this seafood snafu.More

Had dinner here over the christmas holidays …. The apps were served cold - they should have been hot. My son got sick from his pasta / my lobster was OK / my other son had a filet Mignon which was also served cold -...we skipped dessert- i don’t see the attraction to this restaurant or Punta cana - there aren’t any open borders here - way too many gates compounds - Just my opinionMore

My son and daughter-in-law were married in November 2022 at the Jellyfish. The staff was amazing, anticipating every need of the bride, groom and guests. The food was outstanding and service was over-the-top! Highly recommend!

It was a total disappointment!!! After all my efforts to find a great restaurant!! First of all, we get the wrong drinks, then our appetizer comes, and squid when its done properly is very thin, well, this squid was so thin you could see through...it, no taste what so ever let alone feeling like we never even received our appetizer, then the main dish, the lobster for 2, tough as an overcooked cheap steak, and all the side add ons, - mushy !!! How the hell can a restaurant in such an idealistic location have such abominable food. And it doesn't end!!! I get a check with 2 extra daiquiri"s included on the bill!! And after exposing all the screwups , you would think, you would get a cut on the bill or get a free drink or desert and an apology, NOTHING!!!More

Everything about our wedding day was incredible. We were nervous going into it because we are not from the area but when the day came, we were completely blown away. From the owner Issac to the wedding coordinator Farah and all of their staff, the...service was legitimately perfect from top to bottom. The bartenders were quick and helpful as was the waiting service. No one ever waited for a drink or food. The coordination between Issac and Farah made our day the most special day of our lives. We cannot thank them enough. Jellyfish will be the sole reason we will be returning to the Dominican Republic in the future!More

We just had dinner at the Jellyfish and it was amazing! We are from Calgary Alberta so we know what a great steak is and I just had an amazing fillet mignon. My husband had the Cajun shrimp and said it was fresh and delicious....The staff was friendly and on top of everything. Definitely recommend this place.More

5/5 Jellyfish EXPERIENCE. Not just a restaurant meal but the view, location and staff were the cherry on top. Myself and my boyfriend cannot thank Sebastian and the team enough for our visit. Breathtaking views with amazing food. The tuna tartare which was recommended… WOW....We also chose the coconut shrimp for starters and it didn’t sit on the plate for long. We both shared the seafood platter and it was so tasty and fresh. Sebastian saw that myself and my boyfriend wanted to see the beach and suggested we could have dessert on the beach which we jumped at the chance. All in all, no regrets whatsoever and we suggested it to everyone at our hotel. T H AN K Y O UMore

Went today to celebrate my son’s 21st birthday. Whilst I have to admit the food was very good, I was not impressed with the customer service which was non existent. If I’m going to pay these prices for food I expect at least a bit...of curtesy. No interaction whatsoever, no explaining of dishes etc or even a smile! Tried to take my son’s plate away and he had not even finished, never even asked! A real shame, place is lovely but must do better!More
