My husband and I came here for dinner, it was outstanding. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. From the minute we walked in, the service was exceptional. If you're staying at the resort you must definitely try this restaurant!

The restaurant is very accomodating. I cannot imagine that they cant prepare a vegan dish.
We are staying in Cap Cana. My wife and I were curious if we need a pass to go to the restraunt? We made reservations before we came here.
