Boca marina is a beautiful place the view is amazing but the service is terrible the English music in a Dominican restaurant what happen with promoting our culture? Another thing not even one waitress all males not very Pleasant People food not good at all...this place has so much potential wow the person is running this place is not doing a great job. Everything we ordered took long to get and the place wasn’t that busy. My wife asked if they had something on the menu and the waiter said “what ever is on the menu is what we have” no to pleasing nor did he offer a alternative dish. If the ambience was better then people would spend more time at this location in turn ordering drink and spending more money. Great place for pictures but not to spend long time hanging. This is a eat and run of the food was good.More

Recently visited with my family for lunch and we loved dining at Boca Marina. The food was outstanding and so were the drinks. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with amazing decor and beautiful backdrop of the beach. Our only complaint was that service was a...bit slow, but that was our experience in other restaurants as well.More

I love this place from 2019, and I’m still visiting 2 times a year. But need to improve: hostess needs to be more customer service oriented, nice, welcoming and bilingual. The place is inside the beach, needs attention and regular cleaning, maintenance in their facilities,...furniture, decorations. I remember one time seeing men’s cleaning with pressure washer the deck area, and many employees cleaning everywhere. I always make a stop to eat, see the beautiful scenario, go inside the beach and go to the airport very satisfied. But I want to see the place the same way from the beginning that I visited.Hope this help to improvement 🙌🏼🙏.More

Excelent srvice , high quality food, very good prices. As a customer of three years I recommend this restaurant for family, couples and even Solo regardless you will have a good time and is very therapeutic eating on top of the beach.services rendered by supervisor...of waiters named pantaleon and Danny are awesome. Special events by Cindy like birthdays and anniversaries and couples are excepcional. Very important to know is that when you visit Dominican Republic the culture is different and if you are having a bad experience just call the manager and your problems are solved right away. Also you can bathe in the beach from restaurant. They have stairs available for you to enjoy bathing in the beach . You want a boat to take you around Bocachica beach they will call one for you. So come and have a good time here at Bocamarina.More

Go to this restaurant to enjoy the view. The views are amazing! After that, everything is average at best. The food is average (but BELOW average for the price), and the service is beyond poor. It is a long wait to order food, a long...wait to get your food, and servers rarely come by to check on the table. After being seated the service is very inattentive. My suggestion: Buy a cocktail inside, then walk outside to enjoy it. Take some pictures, then leave. I've been 3 times, (Fall, Spring, Summer) and each experience has been as described in this review.More

A terrible experience because the waiter seemed not to want to be disturbed. They had no lobster or octopus. The fish my wife and son ordered was so cooked and dry that you couldn't get an ounce of meat out of it. The price is...outrageously high, I could say three times more than anywhere in the Dominican Republic. Do not forget that this place specializes in seafood and had no lobster, no octopus, I do not recommend this place to anyone unless they want to pay a fortune for a meal that is not worth it.

The restaurant’s view is amazing, decor and areas are gorgeous. Waited over an hour for food, service was below average, would take waiter 20 plus mins to bring drinks. Would recommend for drinks and hanging out.

The beach view is amazing; however, service is non existent. Had to wait 45 minutes for drinks and 90 minutes for the food just to find out they brought the wrong order. Difinetly this place needs new management.

Opens in the morning (around 9 am) and closes late at night. You cannot swim at night and sometimes they have events at night. Call before you go and make a reservation.
