“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Playa Blanca is hidden from the main area, but that is what makes it great. The restaurant has a great views of the ocean and is right on the gorgeous beach. The prices were great but the wine selection is small.

“Good Food & Amazing View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We stayed at the Westin and found this little gem to be a short stroll up the beautiful white sandy beach. We visited Playa Blanca three times during our week stay. The food was very good every time and the majority of the servers were fantastic. We must mention Domingo. Our second visit there was dinner with THE most amazing view. Domingo was top notch all the way. He was friendly, had a great sense of humor, and his service was unmatched in Punta Cana. The mojitos are awesome! Try the spicy goat, the braised conch, tuna tartare. You won't be disappointed. We will return on our next trip!!!!!!

We took our entire family to Playa Blanca restaurant in Punta Cana D.R. and had an excellent meal. I would recommend this to others.

“Bus schedule”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

A nice place indeed but if you come and go by bus (for example from 4 points) make sure you check the times yourself. I asked when the next one leaves because I had things to do and that guy told me the wrong time. The result being me having to wait 1 hour for the next bus instead of being able to take care of my tasks. I was offered that they could call a taxi for me but obviously on my own expenses. He said he was sorry that's all. Maybe they would have cared more if I would have had lunch here but still reading a bus schedule should be possible for their staff.

“Great venue and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We are here several times as a nice escape from club med. Great food, great drinks and great service- and that's before you even consider the view! The fried grouper was amazing and even kids fish and chips were amazing!
