La Cava Kitchen and Bar is a charming restaurant. The customer service is excellent as is the decor and use of space. My friend and I sat outside to enjoy the warm breeze and people watch during our dinner last week. The seafood was good, and they had a nice selection of wines to choose from. This is a good place for a dinner date. We had a positive experience due to the attentive service received. Thank you to team at La Cava!

Best food we ate in Punta Cana! There are so many options- lots of really interesting foods. We are here during the off-season, so a reservation was completely unnecessary. We both LOVED our dinners.
I had the D’Moon sushi roll and the Salmon cooked medium. (They were out of the Red Snapper - which was a bit of a disappointment until I tried the salmon.). My husband had the Hot Ceviche and the steak.
Everything was perfect. Thanks so much for a wonderful meal!

We visited the Village while we were staying nearby at the Westin Resort. It was extremely quiet. The food was good, nothing spectacular, not a lot of choices nearby. I recommend the prosciutto flatbread. It was very tasty.

We came here for my birthday dinner. There were 9 people and we had a reservation. They seemed overwhelmed as if we just walked in without a reservation. The food took a very long time (over 30 minutes) to come. Everyone was served at the same time. The Nero Risotto was very salty. The mushroom risotto had another ingredient that wasn't listed on the menu. The pear flatbread was small and more of an appetizer size. I passed up a seafood restaurant to come here, especially 20 minutes away from our resort. I should've kept my original reservation.

La Cava Ended on less than sweet note...
Not quite sure what happened at La Cava. We organized our final evening here with high expectations coming from several recommendations! We ordered 2 appetizers on the menu that they were out of but the edamame with lime were very good. True to the reviews, the Salmon was truly Amazing! Eager to cap the night off with a final dessert prior to kicking off the New Years Resolutions, we asked for a dessert menu. Our server told us there was only 1, and we could have coconut flan. We ordered it, only to be told they were out of it. Thinking perhaps we were misunderstanding our sweet server because she only spoke Spanish and we unfortunately do not, we asked another server about dessert. We were told there was a dessert menu but then he too came back and said “no we could only have ice cream.” (Well that was 1 more than we were offered before.) For the first time in our Punta Cana experience, we felt they needed our table or perhaps a client with a large bar tab. Given the number of menu items that were not available, a visit from the manager would have left a sweeter taste in my mouth!

Easily and consistently among the very best places to eat at Punta Cana.
La Cava's atmosphere is sophisticated while, at the same time, welcoming, adding up to a very pleasant dining experience.
The combination of quantity and great atmosphere more than compliments the excellent food quality.

The food food was really good but the service terrible. We probably were unlucky with a particular waiter but that made the evening a little less enjoyable. By terrible I mean: bringing the wrong dish, and being reluctant to replace it with the one ordered (not being picky, but blue cheese for a 5 years old is an hard sale). Forgetting to bring some dishes, but still adding them to the bill as well as the the wrong dish and replacement. Just standing there and not helping when a cup of water spilled on the table etc...
