An interview with Carlos Alberto De Moya, Co-Owner /General Manager
Juanillo Beach Food & Drink is the quintessential, hip, Caribbean treasure complete with a spectacular ocean view, creative international cuisine, great service and an ambiance of casualness. It is not just a restaurant. It is an irresistible way of life that keeps you coming back for more. Awarded with Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence twice, this restaurant is in the top 10% of the best restaurants in the Punta Cana region and this includes all 5-star restaurants within the luxury resorts. Yes, it is delish! It is a find, an escape, a place for smiles, fun, laughter, great food and service. For your whim and convenience they will serve you on the beach under the mini gazebos or in the open-air restaurant. Hit the spot with a ‘Cubeta of Presidente’ (bucket of beers on ice)! As one enthusiastic visitor wrote in Trip Advisor, “ … I love everything about this place: the beach, beach view, ambience, music, food, and loveable staff …There was no need to go anywhere else. It is magical.” Yes, it is!
