This is an amazing restaurant that is located within the small marina of the Punta Cana resort. We took a golf cart to the venue. The roof is an authentic thatched roof and it screams "sun, surf and fun." Our dinner was delicious and the bartender made outstanding cocktails. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the area.

Indeed the barman was very good, the service was good but the food was average. I was a bit turned off by the accuracy of the reviews after experiencing some restaurants in Punta Cana. When the reviews praised a particular restaurant the actual experience was somewhat mixed. To be very good you need to work harder, experience more and utilize... More

I picked La Yola to give my girlfriend a surprise birthday dinner. The staff did a great job from setting our table by the deck, covered in pedals and balloons I had previously given them. From appetizers, to a delicious passion fruit drink they were advertising, to our main dishes; everything was a delight. Excellent ambiance and great food.

We visited La Yola as a break from the ho hum food at the Westin and the food was very good but also very expensive. My medium rare steak was served very rare but had good flavor. Our waiter brought us a complementary spinach dip appetizer. Mariachi band was great- very talented! Big wine list but again be prepared to... More

We were a bit hesitant to try this restaurant, due to other reviews. So glad we decided to give it a go. The food was amazing, the prices are right in line with all the other restaurants in the area, the staff was accommodating, and the views are outstanding. We enjoyed it so much we went back for another evening.... More

Booked the reservation from the Westin Hotel where we were staying. Was not sure what to expect. The restaurant is situated in a marina and has a cool but tropical vibe. The menu is varied from traditional apps to local favorites. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating. One guest in our party wanted shrimp with garlic, lemon And butter which... More

We loved dinner here. The service was above average for "island time". The food was very good and enjoyed the pace for which they served us. It didn't feel long at all. One nice thing about the restaurant that we all liked was they set the tables so everyone has a nice view of the marina. This is the only... More

Great view and atmosphere. Food was good but as some have stated pricey for the quality, for a family of 4 with drinks our meal was $230 U.S. dollars, we would visit again if staying in the area. Overall very good experience and rating.
