Beautiful restaurant located right on the beach. Birthday Celebration was noted in reservation but never acknowledged. Server came out once to take our order, we never saw him again until he was summoned for us by another co worker at the end of meal. He seemed upset because we asked for a whole red snapper but he brought out a 5lb fish for 2 people, which we refused to purchase. Literally the entire restaurant was staring and taking pictures of our table due to the enormous size of the fish. The food was amazing, we ordered the seafood platter to share and 2lb fried snapper. Snapper could’ve been seasoned better. Seafood platter was huge and reasonably priced. The lobster, shrimp, conch & langoustine were my favorite. Also, it was unclear if tip was already included in the steep 28% tax

Very pleasant dinner for my son’s birthday. Everything was very good and very very fresh. Service was on point as well. Only negative were the desserts. Flan tasted different from traditional Dominican flan and the brownie was on the dry side. Prices are a bit steep for DR but considering I’m coming from nyc, I felt the prices for the fresh and tasty food were not an issue.

Burnt lobster that came out 2 hours after we ordered. My soup and past never came until mentioned when everyone was almost done eating bc no one came by to check on us. We had to walk up to front desk to address these issues. Needless to say, I am hugely disappointed

We truly loved this place! While on vacation this week, we went two nights in a row! The service was fantastic! Hector was awesome & personable! The first night we had the seafood grille platter & it was truly amazing! Definitely serves more than two people! The next night we had the paella & wow! It was so delicious! I highly recommend JellyFish!

The views and the ambiance were stunning. The food was superb (very fresh and flavorful), my Hendricks Lemon Drop Martini was well-crafted, and the service was top notch. It was a highlight in our vacation! We will return and recommend!

We had fried cheese, coconut shrimp and tempura shrimp appetizers. Those were pretty disappointing, but we had lobster for our main course and it was delicious. The service was pretty slow and the server definitely could have been a little more friendly.

This place is beautiful... we went at night. But were the only people dining due do it being windy. You have a choice of outside seating near the beach. Beautiful! We took lots of pics here lol

Food: for a person from the U.S.. the food is fairly priced for the quality and amount... the steak tastes a little different than the U.S steaks in U.S... not sure how to explain it... but was juicy and cooked well. Lobster was large.

Overall experience: 4/5 .. we’ll be back!

Went on a Monday assuming it would be quiet but there was a (Monday??) wedding with a DJ that had the music turned to 1 million decibels. The food was OK but I don't really remember it because my brain/ears were damaged by the noise/"music". They really should consider closing the restaurant portion when there is a wedding. It would be the polite thing to do for the rest of us paying customers. Oh, and did I mention that we had to drive down a dirt road in the dark with knee deep water at one point to get to this place.....ugh, don't bother

Had NYE dinner here. It was busy and food took over 1.25 hrs to be served. One of our orders was stone cold. However, aside from that one temperature issue the rest of the dishes were phenomenal. The ambience was beyond what we expected for NYE. Would come back.

La comida muy rica (langosta en salsa al cava con verduras y chillo frito). Atención super amable. Noche muy ventosa pero agradable, no nos permitió disfrutar mucho de las vistas, aunque el restaurante -todo en madera- es muy bonito.

Precio razonable (145 usd para dos personas, con vino, postres y cafés).

Para repetir.

Getting to the restaurant was scary because half the road in unpaved and there are huge ponds of water that you cannot tell how deep they are - fortunately we were in a tall car. Once you get there though, the place is absolutely beautiful! It's well decorated and you dine with a view of a calm beach! The service was good, most of the food was delicious! We think they could use a more fitting music, more restaurant-like jazz and bossa nova maybe instead of party techno music given the atmosphere. We will definitely go back however!

During a two week holiday we left our hotel to look for somewhere special to have lunch to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. It could not have been better in any way. Great service, lovely food, good prices, fabulous setting. It was very romantic sitting upstairs looking out across the beach and sea. We made lovely memories. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant was so fricken beautiful and classy looking. The food was so fricken good especially the inferno chorizo. I wish I would have never ate the inferno chorizo because now it will always be on my mind. I wonder if there is way that the inferno chorizo from this restaurant could be shipped to Wisconsin. The view was outstanding and the fluorescent lights were beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone that would go to Punta Cana.

We chose Jellyfish Restaurant as the first major outing during our 2 week vacation in DR. We looked up reviews and photos of the restaurant and the overwhelming majority had great things to say about Jellyfish. When we got there we were blown away by ambiance, the atmosphere and how close we were to the beach. We were extremely pleased with meals and drinks we selected. Our waiter Sandy was pleasant, professional and very attentive. The staff happily obliged when we requested bachata instead of the music that was playing. The set up on the beach was beyond gorgeous and we took some amazing photos that will always remind us of our trip. It was a bit tricky finding the restaurant and the road was quite bumpy. I'm sure that will all be taken care of once the nearby construction is completed. We will be returning to Jellyfish when we return to the DR.

EL lugar es hermoso, las mozas tienen muy mala predisposición para atender.
El lugar es abierto, fuimos justo una noche ventosa y pedimos que cierren un poco las cortinas para poder comer mejor, no solo no la cerraron sino que ni se molestaron en preguntar si estabamos bien.
La comida exquisita pero la atencion deja mucho que desear.
No volvería ni lo recomendaría.
