Captain Cook's, Punta Cana

Playa El Cortecito
Punta Cana
Dominican Republic
Tel: 809 552 0645's insider take:

A series of smoldering outdoor planchas (grills) serves as the kitchen at this casual, thatch-roofed beach restaurant. Staffers cook up simple, inexpensive, and deliciously prepared fish and shellfish here—including a meltingly good langosta a la termidor (halved lobster served with rice, salad, and plantains). Steaks, pork chops, and plates of paella with fries are also satisfying—and even better washed down with a Brugal cocktail and an after-dinner shot of mamajuana (a wicked Dominican brew made with rum, red wine, honey, and herbs). Ignore the servers if they badger you about having your picture taken—unless you want the steep price of a mediocre bottle of rum stickered with your photo added to your bill.
