“Mini angus burger toped with foie”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

The highly original chef tasting menu, including radish cuscus with New Zealand lamb and tomato crust, accompanied by the chef's own wine selection and a final desert with brandy & Dominican cigar sited and enjoyed in the most superb orchid and lush garden was difficult to beat; maybe even competing with world's top restaurants. The chef's CV reflects that. Spain's Bulli, Cerdaña tops and Germany gave this young chef a highly culinary adrenaline push. The perfection was near. Thanks chef & the rest enjoy it.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Located in the Casa Colonial Hotel, it is a super nice, super chic, high end restaurant. Wether you sit inside or sit on the patio it has a serene feel to it, while enjoying great, modern food!

“Dominican food with a twist.”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

This is the best restaurant in Puerto Plata so look no further. I tried to find somewhere else to eat just to switch it up but ended up returning back to Lucia's. The Duck Confetti, Chicken Marsala, Steak, Goat cant remember everything we tried but it was ALL Good.

“Delicious meal, but a bit too formal”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Excellent meals with wide variety of options. Only wished it had been less formal with the ability to eat outdoors.

“An elegant and romantic experience”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

We stayed at the neighboring Casa Colonial which is all inclusive. We decided to have one upscale and romantic dinner escape and the Lucia came highly recommended. We couldn't have had a more enjoyable evening. Peaceful, white linnen, candle light dining with the most incredible menu of Mediterranean-Caribbean fusion selections made this one of the top dining experiences ever.

If you are a seafood lover you will find the freshness of the local catch makes your meal even more awesome. Even if you are part of an all inclusive package I highly recommend at least one dining experience like this.
