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

Came to eat based on a great referral from a friend. We had an 8:30pm appointment. We were greeted and walked to our table. It was for a wedding anniversary so they employees went all out to make our table stand out from the rest...of the restaurant. The atmosphere is great for couples with a live pianist and saxophone playing in the background. The lights are dim with a slight breeze from being right above the water. We were a group of eleven and had an excellent time. The tuna tartare was to die for. Steak was on point as was the desert. Highly recommend this place and will definitely eat here again.More

My wife and the three boys were tired after a beach day. When we arrived at the La Yola ("the boat"), the scenery was spectacular, the staff were super friendly and most important - the grilled lobster aced it! Thanks to all the staff

We’ve been coming to La Yola for over eight years and our visits always leave us wanting to come back again and again. This our spot to celebrate all our special moments,ñ from birthday’s to family get togethers. We always feel so at home with...the team at La Yola. This trip we got the pleasure of having Jorge with us for our three dinners here. He is outstanding! His energetic smile and lovely demeanor makes you feel like your dining at your home away from home. No matter how many times we come here it feels like we’re visiting family. Thank you Jorge for such an amazing trip! You have no idea how memorable you made all our visits to La Yola. A special thank you to Yovany who will always go above and beyond to put a smile on your face. He has been with us since the beginning! You can always tell when people love what they do and the team at La Yola does just that. The food is delicious but the team is impeccable. A must visit in Punta Cana-thank you! Looking forward to many many many many more visits here.More

Waves lap gently and melodic bachata music floats across a tender breeze. The smiles of gentle waiters - long lost friends that somehow you feel you know - welcome you with authentic warmth. Gorges tends to your every need with kindness and expertise; the dishes...are balanced, fresh, satiating. Honeyed rum flows...Here is the Dominican Republic.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.
