The place and the service is amazing, we ordered coffe, fresh squeezed orange juice, pizza and a club sandwich. It seems they make the pizza with canned sauce, I was very disappointed because of that, for the price you should get something better. The club sandwich was bellow average, I've tried better in gas stations. French fries were very good!... More

What a fun gem! Walked down the beach from secrets cap cana. Had 2 big, tasty cocktails - margarita with corona and margarita with wine. Yum! We were aching for some authentic cuisine since the resort doesn't really offer any. The plantain tartlets with shredded beef fit the bill perfectly! Delicious! And the view is spectacular. Can't wait to go... More

This is a great little beach bar with great drinks and outstanding fish tacos. It is a must to visit should you find yourself in the area but don't go far out of your way. Be sure to try: -Fish Tacos -Cpirinias -Margaritas You can pay with credit card but bring cash (USD is fine) to tip the servers. Tips... More

We've had Juanillo Beach and Little John's on our bucket list for quite a while and this visit to Punta Cana we were finally able to visit! Finding it was a challenge as we were driving on our own and coming from Bavaro. But the minute we parked the car and walked through the parking lot we were so excited... More

The beach is beautiful but little John is not good at all. The service is extremely slow, the food is not even average and the price is a way overpriced, we paid 19$ for 1 sandwich, in the menu is showing 14$ but then when you going to pay... they add the 10% tips + the taxes, 3 sandwiches +...

We have been to Punta Cana several times and always seek new places to visit and eat. We ate at Little John in Cap Cana. The Cap Cana project is about 10 years old and has a wonderful golf course, marina, hotel and condos. We stopped at Little John for lunch. The prices are a little higher than Macao Beach,... More

They have a great selection of drinks that are on par in price with everything in the area. The wait staff is very friendly and did fairly well keeping up with our requests. The most... More
