Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 4 August 2021

My family and I had a wonderful meal at La Yola. Jean Carlos was our server, and he welcomed us with a huge smile. He had awesome recommendations (get the eggplant app, it was fantastic) and helped make our night enjoyable. We were a group...of 12, so it was difficult I am sure to get all of our attention, but he handled us with perfection. The restaurant has an amazing ambiance, right at the marina, and everyone raved about their meals! I cannot forget about the drinks...they too were delicious.More

Swami was a wonderful server. The food is amazing. Relaxing environment. Great music. Cuisine is unique. Personalized flavor. GPS May get you lost. Look for Punta Cana resort and club. Across from airport. Look for Blvd Del Mar.

We reserved a table at La Yolla for ly wife's birthday and couldn't have chosen a better spot. We were delayed getting to the restaurant by more than 30 mts but given the nature of the occasion they were waiting for us with a wonderful...table with a beautiful view. The food was just fantastic and the service was spot on. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!More

We had an amazing dinner at La Yola! Antonio recommended the eggplant Parmesan, and it was out of this world! Together we had the steak (with amazing potatoes) and the surf and turf penne. Both were so good. We finished with the cinco leches—a traditional...Dominican dessert. Delicious! Can’t recommend La Yola (and Antonio!) enough! Don’t miss this waterfront gem!More
