Good restaurants are hard to find in Punta Cana due to All-Inclusive-Hotel. This is the only me known restaurant catering Asia cuisine. I went there with a friend, but this spot is very suitable for romantic dinners, with your beloved one. It’s difficult to find but even accessible by car. It´s located somehow inside a gated community. The food, fancy... More

Breakfast. All they serve for breakfast is eggs..... you can have eggs... or... eggs. :) Dinner is different. Every meal we tried was excellent. Try the spring rolls, they are great! A good idea is to bring your own little packets of salt and pepper as these two items are hard to come by. Overall, a nice relaxing open air... More

**This review is coming from a person who eats a lot of authentic Thai food in Chicago.** I ordered the Pad Thai and pork skewers. The pork was dry. The Pad Thai was a soggy mess, I don't understand or know what that was. It was okay-tasting but it was not the authentic Pad Thai that you get from authentic... More

Made a dinner reservation at noon in person for a special occasion - 2 persons outside beside the pool. Arrived at scheduled time to see no available poolside tables. Hmmm... seems they now cannot find our reservation. Tried to seat us a ten person banquet style table in the back... not very romantic. Set up another table by the pool.... More

This place will be where you get your breakfast served in the morning. For dinner, try Thai Green Curry. The Best!

The Thai bowls are an excellent value, sitting by the pool, enjoying Presidente and Thai food is a great way to enjoy the afternoon. The service was excellent. Great value for your money.

I had an OK seafood dish -- not memorable enough even to remember exactly what it was. I asked for a spice level of 10, it was a four. She had a chicken dish that she wouldn't even finish. Acquaintances told us they would be happy to eat every meal there, but we did not find it up to our... More

Balicana is the most serene restaurant here. Wonderful ambience and very tasty food! The service is great thank you Joseph! It's is a bit out of the way but worth the stroll, ask anyone how to get here. We always enjoy our time here.

Add this restaurant to your list if you like Thai food. Excellent selection,quality and presentation. Nice setting by the pool in Los Coralas. Very relaxed setting. This is our must do restaurant on each return visit. Always consistent. Ask for Ramon for excellent service. Highly recommend the sampler as an appetizer. Choice of spices at three levels for your main... More
