“Perfect meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

La Yola sits out over the water with a thatch roof and open air dining. The food was exceptional as was the service. Our best meal in the Dominican Republic. It was expensive. $240.00 for 2.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Although this is a beautiful location the service was only fair, many local selections from the menu were not available, as well as many mid-priced wines. The restaurant at the golf cub was better and with much better service.
