Little John

Casual eats on the beach are the focus of Little John’s menu. Burgers and fried seafood are on offer, but Caribbean-inspired dishes are as well, including fish ceviche, plantain tartalettes, and croquettes. This casual joint offers choices for breakfast, lunch, and snack.

Pranama

Dishes are served as mild or as spicy as you’d like. Those who do and don’t eat meat will be equally satisfied by the menu here.

    Paul is 100% spot on Bullshit !!!!! The food is mediocre!!!!, often overpriced!!! the servers are often slow!!!! they rarely speak English although the majority of their customers do!!! You may be talking about a five star resort’s restaurant, not about Allemania or Bavaro beach. It’s pathetic what tourists here consider acceptable.

    Bullshit, Ari. The food is mediocre, often overpriced, the servers are often slow, they rarely speak English although the majority of their customers do. There are flies everywhere, and incessant noise from speakers (Latin disco) and endless scooters honking horns. Punta Cana is a gong show. You may be talking about a five star resort’s restaurant, not about Allemania or Bavaro beach. It’s pathetic what tourists here consider acceptable.
