Set right on the water's edge at Juanillo beach. We have had dinner here a few times and lunch as well.

Courteous and efficient service. Toilets are nearby and are clean. Menu the same for lunch and dinner. Cocktails are excellent- recommend the sangria.

Have tried a variety of starters and main meals - hamburgers, pizza, Monkey sushi roll (yummy seafood), spicy shrimp tacos (absolutely wonderful, not too spicy but there is a kick), beef empanadas (fantastic), nachos (definitely enough for dinner and ended up as one of dinners as so big). Only had dessert one time- Oreo cheesecake in a jar - very good but a tad too sweet for me.

The food is wonderful, lovely preparation, good portions so dessert for us was wasted as too full after main. The setting is beautiful too - there is an outdoor and indoor setting (well covered) - if windy a bit too ku h for the raised decking outdoors, but in the evening we loved it as brightly lit up. Very romantic too. Definite must to visit and enjoy!

If looking for a light lunch or dinner, please visit the air conditioned La Mona cafe at the Cap Cana marina, a welcome addition to the development. Good food, they have Domaine Ott Rose, great salads, etc. The staff is exceptional, the young female manager is wonderful and caring, the owners do a great job is hiring their staff at both locations.

We're so sorry you didn't enjoy the fish tacos. Was there anything particular you did not like about them?

Right on the best beach in Punta Cana! Nice selection of fish and other dominican specials. Relaxed and friendly service. Helpful server on what is best and enjoyed fish cappuccino, dominican fried fish, and fish tacos. will definitely go back and it and Juanillo beach should not be missed if you are in Punta Cana

During our stay at Cap Cana we headed down to Juanillo Beach to La Mona. My husband ordered the beef quesadillas, which had a modern flair to them, The presentation was lovely. I was under the weather day and asked for coconut water which was not on the menu but I noticed they had it in their Pina Coladas. The waiter hurried away and a few minutes came back with a fresh coconut just hacked open. I was so pleased as it really helped my stomach.
The view from this restaurant is spectacular, we watched pelicans diving for fish and could see the waves breaking on the reef. The water was a beautiful aquamarine. I would loved to have stayed longer or gone back that evening if I had been better. It had a great atmosphere with excellent staff and great music.
