Yovany and Jean Carlos were the most amazing and accommodating! We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary and they made it excellent! The lobster was to die for and the environment, location, and staff were superior to any restaurant we have visited in Punta...Cana so far!More

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

We had a beautiful evening tonight to enjoy La Yola restaurant. The venue is beautiful, overlooking a very nice marina with numerous large boats docked there. The restaurant is gorgeous with huge bamboo ceilings in an open air environment that we really enjoyed. Our waiter,...Jean Carlos, was fantastic. He spoke excellent English which was great because our Spanish is not very good. He was enthusiastic, fun and worked very hard to make sure our evening was spectacular. There were five of us and we all shared our meals since they were so delicious. We recommend that you go and have a great night there like we did!More
