Loved loved LOVED this spot. The Jamaican Jerk Hut was a lovely local Jamaican food restaurant in Punta Cana and I enjoyed every bite. Being from Jamaica I was really missing home cooking. The food in this restaurant is spot on and the flavouring tasted...like home. The owner, who is also Jamaican was so easy going and very welcoming. The service was really lovely and I will be going there to eat every time I am in Punta Canna. You have try it out. The fish, shrimp and red stripe.More

I’m Chaz from Louisiana in the USA and my lovely girlfriend Lucy from London met in the Dominican Republic for vacation. We struggled the first day or two finding good food mainly cuz we hadn’t done proper research, we knew we wanted to support the...locals so we just went from shop to shop smelling around. The last three days of our trip we went to the Jamaican Jerk Hut ( my girlfriend loves Jamaican food), I had never tried it. Upon arrival we were greet by Shereen and Charlotte, where she explained all the dishes on the menu too me. Jerk Chicken is what I wanted to try since it was my first time, the food was amazing. I have to note my obsession with sweet plantains which we ordered also, the plantain was so good me and girlfriend kinda argued over the last few pieces but I let her have it; not only because I’m a good boyfriend but because I knew I was going back the next day. 😎. The next day I talked about the food to my girl quite a lot to let her know I wanted to go back. This time we ordered Ox Tail which came with beans and rice, we order double plantain this time and festivals (which was really good) - Shereen remember your promise about the festivitals 😁.Anyway; Also on the second night Shereen introduced us too this natural fruit juice she made, she gave us a free sample and we ordered two drinks to go with the food. First time having Ox Tail was amazing in this amazing gravy with beans in it. It was a amazing food experience that saddened me too think about while I write this from home; but I’ll be back next year. So the Third night ( the final day in the DR) dinner was very important-dinner night for the both of us, it had to be special. Lucy wanted to go to an expensive restaurant we went to earlier in the week that ran us about $100 USD which had really good lobsters and Lucy loves lobster (she only ate them everything other meal). But Something really special happened this day, Lucy let me choose the meal we would have for our last night in the DR. Yep Folks, I don’t know what my girlfriend was thinking. I didn’t wanna be inconsiderate so we reserved a table for Jellyfish but I asked Lucy to walk with me to the Jamaican Jerk Hut to see if they had lobster and they did; Shereen had jerk lobster and jerk Salmon and Jerk whole fish. After Shereen explained how the food would be prepared, we locked eyes and instantly knew we would be eating there for a third night HOLY Sh!t. The food was so good the third night, Lucy got jerk lobster with rice and beans or peas (however you say it) no disrespect with her own plantain and festival and fruit drink. I got jerk whole fish with the same sides ( my own plantain) and fruit juice again. We maybe paid 40 dollars for food so good it should be a crime; honestly. Saved a lot of money. My girl and I agreed that three nights at the same restaurant for dinner was a story to tell for the ages but it was only possible because the food is that great and Shereen and Charlotte showed love to us. And Yes I did ask for the jerk seasoning recipe and Yes she did say no and I’ve never written a review and here we are 😂 so Shereen we see you next year.More

I went with my fiance yesterday after driving by on my way back from an excursion. We decided to go back on our own. The 20 minute drive was well worth it. The food was excellent, you can taste the freshness in it. We ordered...the beef patty along with rum punch while we waited for our main dish. It was sooo good. The service is wonderful as well. As a Jamaican I can say I am very proud of the whole experience. My only problem was we had to leave today, I wish we found it sooner.More

Literally the best food in Punta Cana! A MUST visit location. We would go back to Punta Cana to just eat at this restaurant again. Absolutely 5 stars on food, service, pricing, and experience. I would add a pic but we absolutely devoured the food...as soon as it hit the table.More

I ordered “jerk” chicken from them for almost 1000 pesos through PedidosYa. It didn’t come with ANY SIDES (not even an option to add any) and the jerk chicken tasted like spicy barbecue. Not authentic at all. Way too overpriced and I feel like they...scammed me! Do not order!More

Hello, we are currently closed due to COVID-19. We are not taking orders via Pedidos Ya. All of our orders come with sides. This order was unfortunately not via our restaurant.

The best food we had during our 2 week trip across the Dominican!! Aside from the incredible food (more about that below), Nadege’s service was amazing. She helped us pick our food to our liking, she was fun and kind and accommodated all our request,...and her cooking was second to none! This place beats many restaurants in London! Re the food: the goat curry was amazing, the flavours are so incredible, the jerk chicken was also flavoursome, fell off the bone and not over done and the Clarendon chicken curry was amazing. The plaintain also was delicious - loads of places over cook it / make it dry! All the food was fresh and delicious. To top it all of the fresh rum punch was amazing and all you need! Nadege is a great chef and host. We have been here twice in 3 days!More

We had a wonderful dining experience this evening at the Jamaican Jerk Hut Punta Cana. Chef Johnny went out of his way to make sure we had the most amazing food and service. I had the jerk chicken and my husband had the mixed meat....He nailed the spice level we requested and it was by far the best jerk chicken I have ever had. If you are ever in Punta Cana, this restaurant is a must. We are here for another 2 weeks and will definitely be back. Looking forward to it!More
