Best a la carte restaurants at Grand Bahia Ambar Punta Cana?

Hopefully someone can give me some input. We are going to the Grand Bahia Principe Ambar in a little over a week and I wanted to book my a la carte's and I was hoping to get some feedback as to which ones would be my best choices while there. Also, are we able to dine at the a la cartes at the other Grand Bahia resorts in the complex?

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks

We found the best to be the Don Pablo & El Olivio both right on-site at the Ambar.

You can also select from these a la cartes currently available to you as a guest at the Ambar:

Portofino (at the Ambar)

Bella Italia & Takara (Italian & Asian at the Esmeralda)

Garden Grill (Steakhouse)

IL Capriccio (Italian)

Either the Maiko or the Mikado (Japanese)

Santa Fe (Tex-Mex)

El Pescador (Mediterranian & Seafood)

Las Olas (BBQ)

El Meson (Spanish)

Don't forget that every Thursday in the main lobby buffets throughout the resort is the Gala Seafood event, featuring grilled halves of Caribbean Spiny lobster.

If there have been any recent changes, fellow destination expert "Brooklin" will update them here.

Hope this helps!

Lovestodine....

Welcome to the Punta Cana forums.

A new a la carte has now opened at the Bahia Esmeralda resort which you may also use & one that may also be of interest you - an Asian a la carte called the "Takara" - if you do try this one out - let us know your thoughts.

Have a wonderful vacation in Punta Cana.

Hope this does assist you.

I can agree with that! Good luck cracking crab legs open with just a fork and knife. :-)

I fully agree with TravelPro - Don Pablo and El Olivio were our favs. Next, we loved Maiko - in fact, this was my fav the last trip. Next, the Stakehouse and then Bella Italia.
