Description: Located at the beautiful Caleton Beach Club, La Palapa restaurant opened in 2003, becoming the first restaurant opened at the Cap Cana residential resort. After experiencing an interesting renovation, La Palapa by Eden Roc, began operations in September 2010, under the management of Solaya Hotels & Resorts, a private firm dedicated to developing luxury hotel projects, which operates the Caleton Beach Club, a private beach club in Cap Cana. Solaya Hotels & Resorts' premier property is Eden Roc at Cap Cana, the first Relais & Chateaux property in the Dominican Republic.Immediately after its first renovation, the new La Palapa by Eden Roc fascinated visitors with its unique proposal of pastas, fresh sauces, homemade bread, fish and seafood. La Palapa by Eden Roc is ideal for those who enjoy the authentic cuisine, where each dish is perfectly executed incorporating fresh seasonal products, without losing the simplicity, in a casual, elegant and relaxed ambiance. La Palapa by Eden Roc is a place to enjoy the best cuisine and the beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea. More recently, La Palapa by Eden Roc has been completely renovated by introducing a new Sushi Bar on the terrace of the restaurant with the creations of one of the most talented local Sushi masters. The access to the restaurant La Palapa by Eden Roc is free to the general public. For weekends and special nights, we recommend booking a table in advance. The use of facilities Caleton Beach Club (beach, pool) is reserved for members or visitors who have purchased an access pass.

“La Palapa ... what a dinner!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Superb food and excellent service.
I went there for lunch and dinner with my 2 teenagers children in December and we enjoyed it very much.
The view is gorgeous during the day and at night time.
I'm going back in April to Punta Cana and La Palapa will be a must stop

“Delicious and great staff”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

I went to this restaurant twice after it was recommended. My first time was for supper and we were greeted by a fantastic server (she was almost like a hostess that welcomed us into her kitchen), she recommended drinks and was able to answer any question we had. We had some sushi (all fresh and very good), a yellow curry linguini with shrimp that was better than most Thai restaurants I've been to, a lobster fajitas (absolutely incredible- guacamole and salsa were just as good as the lobster) and finished with great coffees and a crepe. Overall, it was a very delicious meal, fantastic service, costly but worth it. We went at 6:30 and watched the sunset over the golf course while listening to the waves crash against the rocks.

The second time we brought family for lunch and the experience was just as great as the first time. Everyone loved their food- the gnocchi was very flavourful and filling. The club sandwiches were enjoyed and so was another pasta dish.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Delicious seafood, perfect service, beautiful setting. Worth it if you don't mind the bill. It was about $100 per person but we had a bottle of wine, appetizers and grilled lobster platters - we went all out and loved every minute.

“Christmas dinner at La Palapa”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The food was excellent, by far the best we had on the DR. And the setting on the beach was great. Lots of big family groups were eating their Christmas dinner here, and it was a very nice, relaxed environment.
