This restaurant’s construction and location are right out of a classic Caribbean movie. The service is great. The wine is very expensive for what is offered, but this seems to be the case at most Punta Cana establishments. The food was good, not particularly exciting...or impressive for a true “foodie”. For appetizers, ceviche was good. The eggplant parm appetizer missed the mark. It was prepared fine, the flavors just were overly sweet and disappoint those who are true lovers of Italian food. Would recommend the skirt steak as an entree, it was cooked nicely, not overdone at all and we ordered it medium-rare. Some of their more adventurous cocktails were really tasty and packed a punch. Food took way too long though, but the server was really accommodating and personable. The live music left much to be desired.More

My family and I had a wonderful meal at La Yola. Jean Carlos was our server, and he welcomed us with a huge smile. He had awesome recommendations (get the eggplant app, it was fantastic) and helped make our night enjoyable. We were a group...of 12, so it was difficult I am sure to get all of our attention, but he handled us with perfection. The restaurant has an amazing ambiance, right at the marina, and everyone raved about their meals! I cannot forget about the drinks...they too were delicious.More

Great Atmosphere, Really Good Food, Definitely a pleasure having Antonio as our server. They had live music which made the atmosphere much better. In addition, the whole restaurant sang my girlfriend happy birthday, the musician even came and played my girlfriend happy bday music and...made her feel super special. Would recommend coming here.More

There is no dress code. We had dinner there. We wore casual clothes. I had on shorts and a collared shirt. Great food, service and views.
