Restaurants in Punta Cana

With world-class cuisine to match world-class accommodations, many of the best restaurants in Punta Cana can be found at the area’s resident resorts.

Nestled in the Puntacana Resort and Golf Club, La Yola Restaurant is one of the top-rated restaurants in Punta Cana, earning three diamonds from AAA for its elegant take on Mediterranean cuisine. The space is designed to resemble a fishing boat, with teakwood accents and a glass-paneled floor overlooking the water. Another standout among Punta Cana restaurants is Passion by Martin Berasategui in the Paradisus Punta Cana Resort. Here, diners can enjoy elegant nightly dinner services prepared by its namesake chef, the winner of seven Michelin stars. The a la carte and prix-fixe menus all feature seasonally rotating fare and a host of Spanish-influenced flavors. Restaurante Privilege Punta Cana also features Iberian flavors, serving up tapas and paella in the Cocotal Golf and Country Club.

More affordable options for Punta Cana restaurants include Pastrata, where diners can sample an eclectic mix of American, Italian and Mexican food. Its south-of-the-border plates, including its steamed grouper, are the highlights, and you can dine al fresco on its sidewalk café.

A meal at La Yola, located right on the Caribbean, replicates the feel of al fresco dining on a yola, or small fishing boat, except in a more elegant style.
