“Another Great Night”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

After a romantic seaside dinner earlier in the week, we took the rest of our family here. Very friendly with great service and great food & drinks. We tried 4 different pasta dishes and they were all exceptional. I had the fajitas with mango and it was a great combo. Highly recommend!

“Best meal in Punta Cana”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We spent two weeks in Punta Cana and had two of our best meals here. It's located right on the water, has a beautiful view, and excellent service. Our server, Yovany Santana, was so accommodating and kept insisting that he could make anything happen. He had great wine, appetizer, and entree suggestions. We enjoyed it so much the first night that we made reservations to return before the end of our trip. There's a great variety of food, unique specials, and wonderful drinks. It's definitely a place worth going to when in Punta Cana.

“Beautiful Setting, Great Food”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

The location of La Yola can't be beat - it's right on the water of the Punta Cana marina and the interior decoration, all wicker and low light, sets a delightful, casual beach ambiance. The bread and olive oil starter was delicious, as was the crab cakes appetizer. I ordered the grilled octopus salad, which was generously portioned, fresh, and tasty. My boyfriend ordered the catch of the day, which was mahi mahi in a coconut sauce - yum! The service was a little slow at times, but we absolutely recommend giving La Yola a try for a romantic dinner on the sea.

“It's OK, and worth trying”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

The place has a nice ambiance, and there was a trio play imaging music at each table, which were very good.

The food is OK, and priced like other restaurants in the area. I gave a very good rating as others in my party liked it. However, I would personally rate it as average.

Compared to the food at the Westin, where we are staying, it was notably better.
