Fabulous whole friend grouper, coconut shrimp, fish and shrimp tacos! Amazing drinks too! Finding Castaways was literally the highlight of our trip after some rough days at the Grand Sirenis Resort. Thanks to Michael, Chef Lubin and all the servers and bartenders. Can’t wait to return one day

My family and friends went here while we were all on vacation at Breathless Resort. The food was PHENOMENAL. It was the best meal we had the entire week, and the lobster appetizer I had was probably one the most delicious things I've ever eaten. We have traveled to a lot of places and eaten a lot of food, but this place was memorable for sure. The chocolate dessert was to the die for as well, and the Carribean lobster was excellent. Not only that but I was shocked at how affordable it was. I really can't say anything bad about it. The owner is such a nice guy, so personable and friendly. My fiance and I had a beautiful walk back to the resort down the shoreline that night.

Hi Folks! Thank you fo the great review! Yes, the lobstercargot has become one of our most popular items- it almost has a cult-like following and it is so funny because we added it to the menu last minute- I actually have a guest who comes all the way from Veron and calls to make sure w have it before she comes. Thank you so much for visiting with us and we hope to see you back soon! Chow! Michael

We visited castaways for a family birthday as a group of 10 people. The location is amazing, right on the beech with stunning views across the ocean in the moonlight. The food was fantastic as well, nothing was too much trouble when we asked for a couple of changes to our order. Across the group we sampled quite a few different dishes from the menu and everyone loved the food, so much so we booked to go again before we left. Definitely highly recommended, if you’re in the area go, you won’t be disappointed.

What a night! Castaways arranged a romantic dinner on the beach at my husbands request and covered all the details. What an amazing surprise! My hubby contacted them before we arrived in the DR. The owner, Michael, arranged everything! We arrived to flowers, white linens, and candles at a table on the beach. They had music and even a photographer! On top of all this it was a clear night with the moon reflecting off the water. You can’t beat toes in the sand while you celebrate your 25th anniversary. The staff welcomed us warmly from the moment we arrived. And the food???? That was the absolute best in the DR!!! I had the filet and hubby had the shrimp. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Topped it off with bananas flambé and key lime that were nothing like we have ever had. Our hats off to the very talented chef. We will be back anytime we are in the DR. Castaways has a permanent home in our hearts! Thank you!!!!
