Why would I want to go out to restaurants in Punta Cana? This is a question we get asked all the time. The answer is simple: –sometimes resort food can get a little boring (even if it’’s really good) and it’’s nice to see something different. Most often we just want a break from the resort, see some different scenery and try out some new flavors. Other times, we have been off sight-seeing or shopping and just happen by one and can’’t resist.

In Punta Cana there is a large variety of restaurants for every taste and you can enjoy exquisite specialties while watching beautiful sceneries. Vacationers in Punta Cana can dine in formal restaurants that serve filet mignon and lobster, or they can enjoy a more laid back and casual setting while dining on the island’s national dish of la bandera.

Traditional Dominican cuisine is basically a mixture of Spanish, Taino and African gastronomy and consists mainly of rural recipes elaborated with simple ingredients. Here in Punta Cana, and even within your resort, you can easily find restaurants and dishes from different countries. You might find good food, good value, and friendly service, but keep in mind that the farther you go off the beaten track, the more unlikely it is that English will be spoken.

Here below you can find a complete list with all the most important restaurants you can dine in Punta Cana arranged by type of cuisine, with address and contact number, with our special recommendations depending on the kind of experience you’re looking for.

TIPS

Mangu: Traditional Dominican morning favorite, made up of boiled green plantains. The plantains are then mashed with the water it has been boiling in. It is topped with sauteed onions and served with salami, deep-fried cheese, fried eggs or avocado on the side.

Mofongo: You simply cannot leave without trying this! Green plantains are fried and mashed with garlic and fried pork rind. A true delicacy!

La Bandera (The Flag): The most popular of the national dishes, “la bandera” consists of a stewed meat dish, white rice, red kidney beans, fried plantains and salad and is served as lunch.
