Such a wonderful experience! The octopus app is one of the most beautiful presentations I’ve ever gotten Juan Carlos was my server on my birthday and he made it extra special for me and his hospitality made the restaurant even better! I highly recommend La...Yola!More

We visited our favorite restaurant twice during our recent trip! The food has gotten more consistent and was delicious. Excellent presentation and you can't beat the service or the setting. We always feel welcomed as family there, even if our visits are very infrequent (due...to distance only!). Can't wait for our next meal there!!More

We had an amazing time in La Yola Restaurant, the food was delicious, we had Churrasco (sooo yummy) and Filete de Chillo. So recommended, Jorge was so cool and he did care about all the details. (La Grasa ;))

The setting at la Yola is lovely, great ocean front location and open decor. Great location for lunch when you can enjoy the view. My family and I have been coming to la Yola for likely 20 years. The food and service have always been...good. The menu has a great range of offerings. All sorts of seafood and rice and pasta dishes, pretty much something for everyone. I had the shrimp cooked in coconut milk which I enjoyed. We also had an eggplant dish that was very good too. They have a nice wine list. We recommend la Yola, enjoy!More

Finding this is a little tricky. It is in the Marina and just a matter of following signs. It is at the end of a road that currently is a dead end. It is within a secure complex, like all good touristic places and to...gain entry they require you to leave your ID at the gate. Having read this on TA already we gave in a drivers licence rather than a passport. The welcome at the restaurant was very nice and we had a very good table right by the water. It wasn’t very busy. I had the octopus as a starter which was excellent and my partner the Caesar Salad, very good. We then had the red snapper for main. It was good but the red snapper was slightly overcooked. Service was good and friendly. Would certainly recommendMore

I truly recommend La Yola for a long list of reasons. Ill start with the wonderful staff. I was planning a group dinner for 13 people, with varying needs and dietary restrictions. It was a pleasure working with Yoanny and his team. They made the...experience smooth and memorable and it was a great first night for the group. The setting was amazing and the food, phenomenal. Whether you are planning for a bigger group/event or want a small intimate experience, you can't go wrong at La Yola and should not pass up the opportunity to visit while in Punta Cana. Thanks again.More

Amazing experience!! Service is excellent, food is impressive. Everything was delicious!!! We ordered the ceviche, spinach dip, octopus, and tuna tartar and they were all so delicious. And for the main dish we had churrasco, risotto, and linguini. The decor is very Caribbean style, with...a high-end glamour. Overall, an amazing place for dinner with family or friends!More
