No visit to Punta Cana would be complete without a visit to Noah Restaurant. 

If you love fresh seafood, service with a smile, and gorgeous cocktails, Noah restaurant is the place you need to be. 

The food at Noah is incredibly fresh, is packed full of flavour, and comes in very generous portions as well. 

Offering a fusion of seafood, sushi, pasta, and Caribbean cuisine, if you love fresh fish and want to get adventurous with your food, Noah is the place to be. Their fresh tuna tartar is a best-seller, and the cerviche is divine. 

If seafood isn’t your thing, or if you simply want something different, the goat risotto comes very highly recommended indeed. There are also plenty of mouth-watering vegetarian options available, so nobody is left out.

Punta Cana Villas By Haute Retreats


One of the best things about Punta Cana is the diversity, and this is reflected perfectly in the dining choices. 

Nakamura is one of the most popular Japanese restaurants in the region, and rightly so. With a large selection of sushi and non-sushi meal options, Nakamura is perfect for anybody looking to sample authentic Japanese cuisine. 

For starters, why not begin with crab croquettes or shrimp gyoza dumplings. For your mains, the breaded pork Tonkatsu curry comes very highly recommended indeed. 

If you’re in the mood for sushi, you have to try the Rainbow Roll. This dish made of king crab salad, cream cheese and leek with salmon, tuna, avocado, and Masago topping, sells out fast, so be quick. 

Like a bit of spice? No problem, the Special Dynamite sushi roll is bound to impress. Again, it features that stunning king crab salad, avocado, and cream cheese and leek with salmon, only this time it’s topped with a generous amount of dynamite topping. Be warned, this has a kick.
