The menu at RIU Hotels’ new themed restaurant is based on the fusion of modern and Caribbean cuisine

Fans of RIU hotels’ à la carte restaurants in the Caribbean are in luck. The company’s gastronomy team has created the gourmet Kulinarium, a concept based on the fusion of modern and Caribbean cuisine, using mainly local products and new culinary techniques.

The menu has a marked Caribbean style. Hereafter we want to present some of the most distinguished dishes of RIU Hotels & Resorts’ new addition to its gastronomy range.

Causa de Camarones, a typical Peruvian dish, made with potato pureé and prawns. Chupe de Langosta is the name given in Peru to this broth made with lobster, potatoes and cheese.

Grilled Huachinago, a fish typically found in South America and Central Mexico. We like to serve it with Yuca, a root vegetable, and Pico de Gallo, a salad that accompanies many Mexican dishes.

Duck Magret with Spiced Wine Sauce

Arroz con Leche







Duck Magret with Spiced Wine Sauce is an interesting combination of Caribbean and French cuisine.

A suggestion to end dinner, a modern interpretation of a traditional dessert cooked with rice and milk,  Arroz con Leche.

The first Kulinarium restaurant was inaugurated in hotel Riu Palace Bavaro in the Dominican Republic. Now it can also be found in Riu Palace Peninsula and Riu Cancun, both located in Mexico. In the future, RIU hopes to add a Kulinarium to the dining range in Riu Bambu, also in the Dominican Republic and in Riu Negril, in Jamaica.

    The meal i had at the Kulinarium was one of the best i have ever had. The service staff were very well trained and there aren’t enough positive things i can say about the meal. The lobster soup was phenomenal. I would recommend it to anyone.

    We are going to be there this week and can’t wait to try this restaurant! Is there a dress code and do we need to make reservations?

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Heather,

      Formal dress is required for dinner. For the themed restaurants gentlemen should not wear sleeveless T-shirts and must wear long trousers.
      In our hotels in the Americas no reservations are required for the themed restaurants.

      We hope you have a great stay!

      Kind regards,
      RIU Hotels & Resorts

    We will be staying at RIU Reggae in Montego Bay in two weeks. Do you accept reservations for the specialty restaurants?

      Hi Cheri!

      You don’t have to make a reservation at our theme restaurants in RIU hotels in America: tables are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis depending on when people arrive at the restaurant 🙂

    We are a group of 6 arriving in a few weeks and I was wondering if we could get copies of the menus for the specialty restaurants in advance. We have a couple of picky eaters in our group. Thanks!

    • Riu Hotels
