Fodor's Expert Review Lucía
With a setting as artistic as a gallery—befitting its location within Casa Colonial, a refined boutique hotel—and an ambitious Caribbean-fusion menu, Lucía is successful on all fronts. In a room with orchids galore, crisp white linens, and waiters in white guayabera shirts giving impeccable service, guests love the delicious appetizers, which include perfectly seared foie gras with mango sauce, or seared tuna. Remarkable main courses include rack of lamb and Caribbean lobster. The molten chocolate volcano is a signature dessert. When the digestif cart is rolled over, be daring with a Brunello grappa or the local Brugal Unico rum.
