Fodor's Review

Lucia's menu is comprehensive and contemporary; billed as Caribbean Fusion cuisine, the Italian chef has put his own accent on it. The setting is as artistic as a gallery—befitting its location within Casa Colonial, a refined boutique hotel. Picture orchids galore, crisp white linens, and waiters in white guayabera shirts giving impeccable service. Guests love the one-of-a-kind appetizers, like the Seis-Viche, six varieties of ceviche presented in individual spoons. A main course might be a grilled duck breast, crispy leg confit, and foie gras served with rum-mango sauce and mashed pumpkin. Carnivores with more basic tastes can order an Angus filet. The molten chocolate volcano with vanilla ice cream is the dessert you want. When the digestif cart is rolled over, be daring with a Brunello grappa or the local Brugal Unico rum, and look through the glass wall to the orchids clinging to the trees and the tropical mangrove garden. It's the good life at Lucía.
