La Verandah is the sister restaurant to Lucia, both located in the ornate Casa Colonial in Playa Dorada, a bit east of Puerto Plata. Lucia is even more expensive, and the entire setting is so 'not' the DR and you might pause before going. However, if you want to be transported to restaurants which would do well in Miami or Washington DC, this will make that happen. The setting for La Verandah, right on a manicured beach with everything marked 'plush,' is quite wonderful. The service is impeccable. The food shows great care and innovation, and we had a wonderful meal, but the cost managed to escalate. Compared to other wonderful places with great views, good service, and great cooking, La Verandah was perhaps for a different audience than our party.
