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

We had an amazing experience during our first night in Punta Cana. In fact, it was so good that we made another reservation for our last night on the island. The location is great with a beautiful view and the food was delicious. Our waiter,...Jean Carlos, made wonderful recommendations so we could have an authentic Dominican meal. Although the restaurant has all types of cuisine, I opted for the “asopao de camarones” or shrimp stew after trying the pumpkin soup. The suggested drink, La Yola Passion, was exactly what we had in mind for our first tropical drink in Punta Cana. Our suggestion would be to have an early dinner or late lunch so you can enjoy the view.More

Jamie and Joaquín were awesome at the restaurant, please ask for them when you arrive. The food was excellent, ambiance was beautiful and the service was the best. The views in the restaurant are all good, it’s set by the water.

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.
