What a special place! Not to big and not to small..It’s a fine dining menu with reasonable prices and a very casual atmosphere…it’s about 10 steps from the waters edge at an incredible beach. Great service …everyone seemed happy to be at work..and the bar...was amazing. It’s the kind of place you could literally spend the entire afternoon at. Way to go Mike and team..we were impressed.More

Hi There- Thank you for the great review- yes, Chef Lubin uses filet mignon in our philly to give it a very tender steak while still ensuring the onions and cheese are melty and gooey- shamefully, I eat this at least once a week jajaja....More

I cannot say enough about this magical place right outside of Punta Cana. First, the staff was incredible, funny, kind and spoke Spanish and English. Their service and kindness were top notch!! The food was equally spectacular. The atmosphere equally spectacular. We plan on going...back tomorrow!!! Basically, Castaways in a slice of heaven!!!More

We stopped at castaways January 18th for lunch with one of our local friends. Food was good, however the salad I ordered was drenched in dressing which made the lettuce soggy. The key lime pie was really good! The following week we came back, January...26th to spend the afternoon with a few of our local friends and enjoyed a great lunch (again). The castaway burger was soooo good! Best burger I’ve had while in the Dominican. Dessert didn’t disappoint either, the chocolate pie was out of this world! During lunch the owner stopped at our table to ask how everything was! Great service, and we’ll be back again in January 2025!More

Perfect place to enjoy a fine meal and enjoy the beach amenities. After relaxing on lounge chairs with mojitos we headed to restaurant for lunch. It is right on beach with perfect view. Forgot to mention our bartender John made excellent cocktails and delivered them...to us on the beach. Zuleyka was our terrific waitress. Made helpful suggestions as we viewed the menu. We started with lobster-cargot. This is lobster in a scampi sauce inside a mini puff pastry and served in an escargot dish. I have never tasted anything like it. I complimented the chef and he even came out to our table. Lublin was his name and this is one of his creations. It was delicious! As a seafood lover my entre was grilled red snapper. Again outstanding. Highly recommend a beach outing and absolutely delicious food!!!More
