We made reservations and had the most Devine dining experience in Punta Cana. The Tasting menu is exhaustive and offer a 7 course dining fare. We were served with 3 starters while we waited for our starters. The slow cooked egg in a bread basket followed by a fried fish ball and finally stuffed mussels sautéed in olive oil n onions were Devine. My steak was well made and tasted great. Our waiter Angelo was very good. The Jr Chief Ruben rendered a great dining experience. We were very surprised at the knowledge that they had about the food and wines they served. We ordered an Argentine Merlot and enjoyed it very much. The decor is modern and very well done. The leisurely experience must be experienced to be believed. The desserts were also delicious.

Passion by Martín Berasategui at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
The restaurant "Passion by Martin Berasategui” in the Dominican Republic shines with its own light in this Paradisus Resort, characterised by exuberant gardens and tropical mangrove swamps. The chef with 7 Michelin stars remains true to his origins with a menu which is sophisticated, avant-guard and full of flavour while integrating the local personality.

Martín Berasategui triumphs once again with his seventh star.
Undisputed forerunner of the 2014 edition with a second star recently awarded to his “M.B” restaurant at The Abama Golf & Spa Resort in Tenerife. Adding to those already achieved at his three-star “Martín Berasategui” restaurant in Lasarte, Guipuzkoa, and the two stars at the “Lasarte” restaurant at The Hotel Condes in Barcelona.
The 2014 Michelin Guide ranks him as the Spanish chef with most stars. M.B. at The Abama Golf & Spa Resort in Tenerife is the first-ever and only restaurant
with two stars on The Canary Islands.

Wow, what a dining experience. We highly recommend Passion restaurant at the Paradisus Punta Cana. It is an additional charge, but the food and the service would rival any fine dining establishment in the US. The tasting menu is highly recommended, as they can give a sampling of your favorite in the line-up. We were not going to choose the tasting, since I LOVE sea bass, but the food we got during the tasting (which did include the sea bass), was so much more interesting and delicious than just having that one dish. The waiters were fabulous. Thanks to Angelo, Wanda, Felix, Manzuela, Juan, Gustavo, Marilin, Robelin, Francisco, Mariela and Daniel for making Passion such a truly wonderful dining experience.

We so loved our vacation at Paradisus but this meal was the absolute highlight of the week. The Sea Bass was superb and the atmosphere was elegant yet cozy and relaxed. The dining experience was top shelf and though we chose to dress up (black dress and heels) others there were comfortable and welcome in tropical vacation attire. What a wonderful team that took care of us and I insist on giving them kudos since I wrote all their names down: Bravo to Angelo, who took the lead and made our night special. His supporting staff all contributed to the wonderful overall experience: Francisco, Daniel, Mariela, Robein, Wanda, Manziela, Gustavo, Felix and Juan.
Excellent food and service, thank you all so much!

The atmosphere at Passion, Paradisus Punta Cana, is classy and formal, but not stuffy. It still maintains the "island vacation" relaxation. Our waiter, Juan, was by far the best waiter I have ever had. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and had a truly genuine personality that made us feel like friends by the end of our meal. All the staff at Passion do an incredible job of being available when you need them, and slipping in to the background when you are enjoying your meal. The chef here is absolutely amazing and creative. When I told our waiter, Juan, that i was allergic to dairy, he took me very seriously and made sure to listen to my restrictions. On top of that, we ordered the "tasting menu" which is 9 or 10 individual dishes. When Juan told the chef that I had a dairy allergy, there was no fuss about it at all. The chef simply made the same amazing dishes that he usually makes, and seamlessly removed the dairy for me. When the dish happened to be one based on dairy (like chocolate cake) the chef took the liberty of crafting an entire fresh fruit plate for me, with apple shaved and stuffed with cinnamon, star fruit with cherries. The presentation was impeccable. Overall, the food is unbelievable, and the respect and attention the staff gives you is a fantastic surprise compared to any other restaurants. Definitely eat here!
