We weren't going to bother with La Hacienda. It's not directly on the seafront, and when we visited the road in front of the restaurant appeared to have imploded - two whacking great sinkholes at either end. Not very inspiring.
But for some reason, we decided to give it a try. The food was absolutely beautiful. My main, panfried conch with the most delicious baked potato and seasoned tomatoes was delicious. My husband had the goat in wine - perfectly tender. Chocolate mousse was superb.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated, but there were no other diners there. I fear La Hacienda may be overlooked due to its location. Such a shame because the meal we ate was without question the best of our vacation - counting both the DR and Puerto Rico actually.
