La Yola

Fodor's Review

Dining on the deck here, gentle breeze blowing over the Puntacana Marina, you feel as if you are actually aboard a yola (a small, local fishing boat). The cuisine has Mediterranean and Caribbean influences, and service is attentive. Seafood dominates the menu (you'll also find beef and chicken selections). Carpaccios, ceviches, tartares, Dominican-style conch (lambi) and Spanish (Gallega) octopus. Main plates, including the catch of the day—usually red snapper, grouper, or dorado (mahimahi)—are artfully prepared and presented. Fresh lobster with curry sauce side or the shrimp trio are always great options. Most side dishes are extra. Through a glass-floor portal, you can sometimes see what you ordered swim by! There is a long Happy Hour, and you can watch as the boats pull in and the sun goes down.
