The pictures look great, but the food was terrible and they were very dishonest, by recommending a plate that they didn't even have the main ingredient (Lobster) especially since by itself Is a $28USD item and just gave us langonstinos. we ordered (Parrillada de mariscos)...which on Jan 19th 2022 is an $80 USD plate. We were told it had fresh vegetables, even though the Broccoli was yellow and the other vegetables were just as past due. The pulpo was very hard and undercooked. The lambi was also hard and the calamari was like rubber. Even after our disappointment, we just wanted our check to leave. When the server came back and asked us about the food. I politely and respectfully told them the food wasn't good, we weren't mad, but just a bit disappointed and all we wanted was our check. They said they would notify the staff, so they would do better next time. 10 mins pass no check im looking around for our server and another waiter came over an asked if we needed help, we said we just wanted the check. Another 10 mins pass and still no check. So I got up and walked over to our waitress who was sitting down just alking with the other staff/ bartender and she completely ignored me when I addressed her face to face. She acted as if i was bothering her conversation. And rudely said she'll be with us in a minute. So we waited in total 35 minutes to just get our check. This place was very unprofessional. They should have been honest and said they didn't have lobster instead of passing off longostinos as actual lobster. And been respectful of our time and should have gotten us out of there in a reasonable amount of time, there was no other reason to hold the check up, other than to build up enough frustration, that I would take time out of my vacation, just to write a bad review. I hope this helps the next tourist to stay out of this trap.More

My group had a good time at Jellyfish. We would of enjoyed more drinks if the servers came to take orders but they saved us money. The only thing i didnt care for was the waitstaff coming to the table without masks on. Not everyone...is comfortable.More

Wr’ve had a dinner at this restaurant during the vacation on Dec’2021. This place didn’t meet our expectations despite very high scores in the past. The food was average (our choice was grilled red snapper fillet, tempura shrimps, tuna tartare, grilled vegetables and a bottle...of wine). The service was also loose. There are some better places at Punta Cana where you can have much better food and service even at relatively lower costs.More

Thought it was extremely overpriced. My bfs lobster was good but my chicken parm tasted like they reused the deep fryer they used for fish and it was seafood tasting. Im sure it's fantastic for seafood but they need to work on their selection of...turf itemsMore

Wasn’t really worth the price. Had the shrimp salad and grilled seafood for two and the seafood was cut into small pieces and was overcooked. The place was nice enough and staff generally friendly though. The salad really wasn’t much of a salad. Not much...to it.More
