Great restaurant while staying at tortuga bay. Food great, service great, atmosphere is second to none. The restaurant is literally on the water with cooling breezes coming in off the water. Highly recommended. If no breeze it will be hot so dress accordingly

We ate at La Yola two of the six nights in Punta Cana. It is right on the water with an open atmosphere. Great food and friendly service.

Of all the restaurants within a short walk (or golf-cart ride) of the rooms at Tortuga Bay or Punta Cana Resort, this proved to be the most ambitious of the lot, beautifully appointed and professionally run. The dinner menu features meat, fish, pasta and local Dominican favorites (e.g., suckling pig and goat stew plus local veggies). We chose local fish on our first of two visits and loved the red snapper fillets, served unadorned but expertly cooked and seasoned. Second visit centered around beef, and we found the "choice" 8-ounce steak more than enough to eat (12-oz would have been overwhelming), very tender and sauced expertly. The Greg Norman-brand of beef, extravagantly expensive, was not necessary, we feel). The setting is open-air and facing a marina. Service was very polky the second night when a large tourist group kept the kitchen busy, but the food made up for it. Other restaurants in Tortuga Bay are were not as gracious, and could not match the utter loveliness of the setting, warm and garrulous bartender to boot!
