There are many North Coast food threads. Well primarily Sosua.
It is very rare to see anything about the LT food scene. I happen to think it is quite good and diverse.
There is everything from local to French, Italian, Czesk and North American.

I am interested in hearing others thoughts on their favorite LT restaurants.
Like almost all else in the DR "inconsistent" summarizes our experiences last year.

Here are a few of my memories.

1)Al Pasito - Went there Valentiines Day 2019 and had an outstanding meal. Sea erchant was the star of the show.
We tried to go back two days later and it was closed as the chef quit. When it re-opened it was so / so.
2)La Caliente Yuca - Had one meal there, Lobster ravioli and really enjoyed it. My wife had a pizza that was also really good.
3)Baraonda- Overall disappointing. So much potential , terrible chef and leadership in my opinion. Perhaps that has changed in the last 12 months?
4)El Delfin - Wildly inconsistent food and service. However the owners are the nicest people you will ever meet and we will go multiple times on our next vacation. As long as you go in with a "chilled" attitude its all good.
5)Bon Appetite - If it is still open , will not be back , 'Nuff said. Sad as it "was" really good.

I am not interested in an establishments in fisherman's village or warf. Too congested and touristy for me. However I would like to hear others thoughts. I don't trust trip adviser reviews a lot, some seem very "off"

Tre Caravelle towards Ponta Popi. Try their seafood risotto or steak with gorgonzola sauce! Awesomeness!

Whenever in Las Terrenas my favorite is to go to the fishermans' market at the old cemetery. There you can buy fresh catch of the day. They have a variety of seafood, too. And bring shrimp from Sanchez. Fresh ingredients make recipes especially great. Keep them simple. Sautee the seafood with chopped garlic in light olive oil. Maybe some cherry tomatoes. Lots of chopped cilantro or wide leafed parsley. So delicious.

I prefer places outside of town.

- Luis in Coson is good, mainly seafood, but has gotten expensive recently.
- Yocelins on the road to Coson, german food.
- Places behind the cemetery.
