Thank you to Ivan! it is very hard to get a real taste of food in Punta Cana when staying at an All Inclusive, but we left the resort to go here and everything we ate was great! fresh seafood all the way to the...seafood soup was amazing! We came last week as a family (group of 10) and Ivan did a great job serving us!More

This place was recommended to us by two separate locals so we thought we had to give it a try. We were trying to find TOC beach bar (amazing!! Go there instead) but the taxi (make sure to use Uber in PC as the taxis...are a criminal mafia ring) couldn’t find TOC and recommended Capitan so we agreed. We walked in and they had a very limited selection but we thought well that means it’s all fresh. We opted for a kilo of shrimp and two caipirinhas. The food came and we started to eat but they hadn’t fully cleaned the shrimp. The poop canal was still full on each one. We removed it ourself and tried the shrimp. It was flavorless. We managed to flag the owner and asked for our drinks. He had been busy trying to convince us to take a boat ride and when we declined basically disappeared and had forgotten to bring the drinks. We finally got them and I’m not kidding when I say all it was was sprite and some kind of hard alcohol. Horrible! So we told him we needed the check and had to go. He brought the bill and the drinks were NYC prices even though they were undrinkable. The lunch was over $60!! Arrrghhh. So we wandered down the beach to TOC and each had four cocktails over the next several hours and fish tacos for $60. Don’t go to Capitan Cook!! Maybe it was the place to go years ago but it’s tragic now.More

I first visited this restaurant in 1999, we jumped on a skiff from our resort to this place where they had a huge grill and picnic tables on the beach. They were the best shrimp I tasted then and 22 years later, they are still...delicious but the amount per pound is a whole lot smaller lol.More

We went to this restaurant with friends, 6 persons, we order only appetizers ( awful shrimps, service with so much vinegar and salt that it was hardly eatable, fish soup with no fish, but a lot of rice, and grilled octopus. And some mohitos. We...paid for that almost 300$ - over 15000 pesos!!!! For not eatable apetisers!!! Avoid this place, they do not know how to cook!More

Upon arriving to the restaurant my girlfriend and I walked into the restaurant for seating. After being told we could sit anywhere we wanted we picked a table right along the beach front. We were seated for maybe 5 minutes when a staff member walked...over and told us we could not sit there. I told the staff member we were told we could sit anywhere and he still demanded we move places. The table he was trying to get us to move to was literally 5’ behind this one. I didn’t understand. Needless to say my girlfriend and I got up and walked right over to the next restaurant and had dinner right on the beach. This restaurant even set us up a table on the beach.More

On my latest (6th) trip to Punta Cana, i wanted an authentic seafood experience, so i asked a friend who lives here. “Check out CAptain Cook” - he said. So we did. Came here for dinner. Where do i start? Is it the food? Is...it the view? The weather? I guess it is all of the above. Now, just like anywhere in DR - the price is what you are willing to pay. So for fresh lobsters - we negotiated. Finally agreed to 2 big ones plus a big seafood platter for 2 and sides. We could not finish. Freshest, tastiest food with best tasting mojito was well worth 250$ we paid for 4 of us Obviously, they also have regular menu. We are leaving in 3 days and plan to be back for another dinner before we leave. Highly recommend.More

No Music, but the ambiance is great no matter the time of the day! The sound of the Ocean is sufficient.
