The restaurant offers a free shuttle service from just about any resort in Punta Cana, just call and they shuttle you back and forth. They are located in the casino in cap Cana and the goal of corse is to get you to gamble a...bit but you just walk through the smoke free ultra modern casino and into the restaurant where the staff goes out of their way to welcome you and seat you in ultra comfortable chairs in a very intimate dining area. The manager of the restaurant goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable with your menu selections and in our case offered us a free appetizer of an item that contained a sushi tuna tar tar that we were unsure of that turned out to be so delicious we couldn't believe it! Sorry I can't remember the exact name but the presentation and taste were fantastic! I'm not a huge fan of sushi but this opened my eyes. Anyway, we both started out with a pumpkin soup that was delicious and spiced just right, my wife ordered the "Poke bowl"with tuna and shrimp and rice which is one of there specialties. She loved it! I ordered the breaded pork which came with a large portion of fried rice and a green salad with an Asian oil dressing. The breaded pork was a very generous portion and done perfectly! I wish I could find this exact same meal in Minnesota, I would patronize the restaurant that served it regularly I was that impressed with it. Our servers name was Diana and although she struggled a bit with English, she was gracious and did an excellent job and was a lot of fun. Prices are typical of the upscale Cap Cana Marina area but, I thought for this setting, the quality of food, the care of the staff and the overall atmosphere, it was very reasonable. My wife had one glass of wine with her meal and I had a bottle of water, we were too full for desert and with tip the total was still only $66.00 I will pay that any day for the type of dining experience we had on this evening. Nothing but good to say from beginning to end.More

This was a nice quiet restaurant. We were the only customers there for the first 30 minutes of our dinner. This restaurant is within Cap Cana so beware that you need a QR code to get through the gate. We came a few hours early...to walk around the shops nearby and had a long wait to get the code. This was not the restaurants fault though. The food was good but a bit more expensive than I think it’s worth. The restaurant was out of salmon which most of their sushi roles included this so we had to change most of what we wanted to order. We got a shrimp tempura roll and a rainbow roll. We also order the miso soup and the filet mignon with fried rice. The tempura roll was by far the best and the filet was average. The staff spoke a little English and were very friendly.More

The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious. They surprised with a delicious piece of chocolate cake at the conclusion of my meal which just happens to be my favorite. It had candles for my birthday and all of the wait...staff sang happy birthday, I was astonished and floored by there gesture. It was a complete surprise. Thank you Nakamura.More

Some of the best sushi we’ve ever eaten. The rolls are quite large. Highly recommend the volcano roll. The edamame is the best I e ever had, hands down. We also ordered a ribeye, which was thoroughly enjoyed, and a surf and turf poke bowl...that was also fantastic. Service was great, despite a slight difficulty with translation. But all in all a great experience!More

We were so happy with the great service and amazing food at this restaurant that we came back for more just a few days later and then again with some friends. If you are at Cap Cana and would like to taste great Japanese food,...Nakamura is the place. We highly recommend this place for tourist, locals and residents a like.More
