Punta Cana has a ton of delicious food options. If you’re ready to get out of your all-inclusive resort and venture out into the town, head to one of these restaurants in Punta Cana for a delicious meal.
Best Atmosphere: La Bruja Chupadora
La Bruja Chupadora is my personal favorite! I always have a great experience and everything I’ve ordered was delicious. They have a large menu with items that you can’t get anywhere else, like the stuffed eggplant or celery puree. And they also have the classics, like nachos or a thick, juicy steak. Plus, they have a long list of cocktails that are served to delight the senses. It’s a great atmosphere and they have great service.
Best Variety: Citrus Restaurant
Citrus has something for the whole family. Hamburgers, wraps, seafood, steak, pasta, and more. The list goes on and on. And everything tastes great. They also have 2×1 sushi night on Mondays, but be sure to get there early since the place gets packed.
Best Pizza: Bella Napoli
Bella Napoli has the best pizza in town. The owners are from Naples, Italy so they know good pizza. They also have a great menu of fresh pasta dishes. And be sure to grab a scoop of homemade gelato after your meal!
Best Vegan Food: Amaluna Vegan Restaurant & Lab
Amaluna is a cute little open-air restaurant tucked away in the neighborhood of Los Corales in Bavaro. You’ll dine under the stars, feeling like you’re one with nature, surrounded by plants and beautiful succulents. Their vegan cuisine has Mediterranean and Italian influences, and every dish is exploding with flavor. You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy the food! It’s simply delicious.
Best International Cuisine: Pranama
Pranama is an authentic Indian restaurant in Punta Cana. Everything on the menu is great, but I’d recommend the tikka masala, chicken vindaloo, naan, and mango rice. And you definitely have to try a rose or hibiscus mojito! They’re both so refreshing!
Best Dominican Food: Posada de Gladys
If you’re looking for a traditional Dominican meal and a local experience in Punta Cana, Gladys is the place to be. The menu of the day includes rice, beans, and either chicken, pork, or beef. You’ll get a ton of food for a great price! Order some avocado, or add a side of tostones (fried plantains), to complete the meal.
Best Beach Restaurant: Jellyfish Restaurant
Jellyfish is a beautiful restaurant where you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the ocean while you savor your meal. It’s located right on the shores of Bavaro Beach. The easiest way to get there is to walk on the beach from your resort. It’s right between the Melia Caribe and Lopesan resorts. It’s a little on the pricier side, but it’s definitely worth it!
