Good food, good prices, cannot beat the view and location! Only downside is they don’t open until 11am and this place would be AMAZING for coffee and breakfast on the beach. We’ve yet to find anywhere we can do that after a week here. :(...But thankful to have found Api since restaurants in Cap Cana seem few and far between. The burgers are excellent as well as the arepa appetizers. We’ve been here twice so far and will be back again a few times I’m sure.More

Beautiful beach and pool to be with the family and have a great day! It’s located at Cap Cana, and it serves international food, great service, and the cocktails were really good! It’s also very quiet and felt like we had the whole place to...ourselves. The waiting staff were great - very attentive and lovely to talk to.More

If the location is truly nice, facing the sea with a small sargassum preserved sea pond area and a little pool, very nice and friendly service, the food could be improved. The ceviche are obviously prepared too much in advance the fish or shrimps being...hence over cooked by the lemon, what they call octopus is in fact squid, I was served a fried red snapper that was way overcooked I even suspect it to have been fried in advance and reheated, tried the pizza that was really average, Cuban sandwich gosh…. Cocktails are nice though and will be served with a smile (hidden by the mask but you still can see it in the eyes.)More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately this is not our menu. This food is from a neighbouring restaurant on the beach.

The grounds of Api Beach and Maralia Restaurant are absolutely beautiful. Upon arrival, my family and I were greeted immediately by all the staff at Maralia Restaurant and Manager Marcos. The service was exceptional - attentive. The food overall was fresh, good portion and the...drinks were tasty served with quality liquor. The pool was wonderful overlooking the ocean. We will definitely be visiting again! Thank you all for your service Familia Del ToroMore

We spent the day fishing and then brought our catch to the restaurant that prepared it for us. The meal was amazing and the staff was very helpful.

Absolutely beautiful and clean beach with lounge chairs and covered cabanas. Very quiet and relaxing. The restaurant Maralia was hands down the best food we had while in the D.R. The spicy tuna tartare and pork belly tacos were mind blowing! The passionfruit mojito was...to die for. Highly recommend spending a day in this area!More

Thanks to my work, I have visited some of the most amazing places on earth…one of my favorites, without a doubt, is API BEACH in Capcana. If you are one of those who enjoy first-class food, a fantastic drink, and the most beautiful sunset ever…this...is your place. I have been going there for a while, and I love the new setting. I had dinner and brunch and MARALIA, amazing food!! Try the Tuna carpaccio, and for brunch the Cream Cheese French Toast…right next door, you will find TIG, a cool “Aussie” corner at API BEACH, great to chill out, have a snack, and great drinks. I can't wait to come back!!!!More

We walked the beach from Punta Palmera to Api beach to have an umbrella drink... $28 later Not sure why when in cap Cana everything has to be so rediculously expensive? Yes it's an upscale area and I get that but, some things are excessive...price gouging and there are no other ways to describe it. I had a choice not to have a drink there, sure, I didn't look at the price, I just ordered what I thought looked good. Could probably have made 20 of thes drinks at home for what they charged me for 2! Home doesn't come with an ocean view though! ,More

Hi Wanaride, Thanks for the post. Happy to break the $14 cocktails (including taxes) down for you. But first, a warm welcome to you and our friends from greater Minneapolis where the average cocktail is $9-$12, and reaches up to $35 per drink. This is...More

We didn't make reservation. We just went in time for sunset and they had plenty of tables available. No wait at all.
