Just returned from a 10 day stay at the fabulous Hotel Alesie for what will be our 6th year in a row of returning here. Although we have a great buffet breakfast every morning in the restaurant Baraonda it is always so nice to come for lunch or dinner. Food is always spectacular as well as the service. Shout out to Luis who welcomes you with such Dominican hospitality and warmth you feel very special and cared for. (Plus his English is on point! Hehe). He recommended the Mahi Mahi that I ordered as my 2 dinner companions were having steak. Rarely does a restaurant do both well but Baraonda succeeds. He also aced the wine recommendation! All of our entrees were excellent. (I sneaked a bite of steak!) Another favorite is the Shrimp Thai salad. I had that for lunch on another day. Also shout out to Martine who makes a killer Mojito. Best I had in LT. Definitely worth a visit. You'll be glad you did. If not for the food then for Luis and the attentive staff.
