We went here during the European championships last year. Germany vs Italy. First of all walked into the German place next door, after about 10 minutes no one served us, so walked in here. Immediate attention, the ambiance was good because the game was on, unfortunately Italy lost, but had a great meal. The oxtail was off the chain. Service... More

We were there on our last night of a week long vacation. We were craving pizza and this place was recommended. We were not disappointed. This was a little slow, but who cares..pour some more wine! It was worth the wait...Good pizza! We would go back...

It was a great meal. The server was very helpful I just wish the wait was not that long for the food.

Look, if you've ever been to the Caribbean you know that service is super slow, which is okay, that's all part of unwinding and de-stressing while on vacation, go with flow. This is how bad the service was at Yucka Caliente...while we sat there, 3 tables just up and left after at the very least 20 minutes without any service,... More

Very mediocre ,at best..Beach front location seem to justify poor to mediocre food at premium $$ in las Terrenas.. Skip it ,not worth a 55 US$ lunch for 2 pizzas,1 salad and 2 beers...PIzzas burned on the side and uncoocked in the middle...low quality everything but the view...Nice staff..

Great pizza! My favorite is the Popeye, but all varieties are excellent. The drinks and view are spectacular.

The place is nicely located at the beginning of the Pueblo de los Pescadores, right on the beach. The food quality is ok, but nothing special... there are definitely better places where to go for a nice dinner

Although it is a bit expensive, this restaurant offers a very good menu. The waiter we had was excellent, very professional, he knew the menu well, and even exchanged a liqueur I didn't like that I ordered and he didn't charge me for the new one. We ordered a starter to share of shrimp ceviche which was very disappointing as... More

We chose yuca caliente because they offer a large menu that had something to accommodate everyone in our group: my vegetarian daughter, my meat loving son, and my husband who needs his food moist. We all loved our meals so much that we returned the next night. My pizza had a crispy, thin crust (my favorite). My husband really enjoyed... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Las Terrenas and enjoyed our meals immensely each time. Very tasty food and attentive service in a lovely setting made for a great experience. Plus, they were playing Spanish-language music, which made the experience feel more authentic than some of the other restaurants in town...
