An understated gem

The food is delicious, simple, and well executed. Service friendly but can be slow, but that seems to be standard in this part of the world. Terrific value for money, unusual in Jose Ignacio.

We had dinner at Lucy's just after New Year based on a recommendation of another guest in the hotel we stayed at. The service was good but the food really wasn't. We ordered 4 small tapas plates but gave up after the second. Very heavy and pretty tasteless food. Can't recommend it, sorry.

I when with my family and the restaurant was less than 20% full and we were not served for so long that we end up leaving the restaurant and having lunch in other place. It is unacceptable not to be served in due time.

After spending a couple of days in Jose Ignacio and having tried what we believed to be the only two rather overpriced restaurants in the village we were relieved to find this delightful little family run eatery at the top end of town. We were welcomed with a big smile from the owner and we enjoyed a delicious and relaxing... More

This restaurant has been in Jose Ignacio what seems like forever, initially an amazing little place to eat at where one was welcomed as family. From that it has gone to an average place where one has to struggle to get attention. We had lunch outside once where we specifically asked for no cheese on my salad as am lactose... More

Lucy has been @ Jose Ignacio for many years and is a well known average restaurant for the area. Last December we went for lunch and were greeted by what seemed a new host/employee. She was super charming and as no waiter was nearby she brought us the menus to our table. The owner Lucy appeared and out of the... More
