We have just returned from a lovely week in the D.R. While waiting for our table at La Yola, we struck up a conversation with Luis at the bar.

I enjoyed my experience at La Yola. Very good food, excellent service and nice atmosphere/ views. Only downer was that they allowed smoking at it's an open air restaurant.

We loved this restaurant! The service was outstanding as well as the food. Highly recommend!!! We had the Tuna Tare Tare, the Coconut Shrimp, and the Black Bean Soup. They also gave us a complementary spinach dip. It was the best dining experience we had during our visit.

This restaurant is adjacent to the Cap Cana Marina and a short cart ride from Tortuga Bay. It is one the water, but is well sheltered from the high winds that are frequent in the area. Food was good as well.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here in early March and I cannot say enough good things about this place. Joander service was prompt, polite and very enjoyable. He made the night. The food was great, the ambiance was incredible and I cannot wait to go back. Thank you Joander for making it such a magical night!
