La Ponderosa del Mar, Puerto Plata

156 12 de Julio
Puerto Plata
Dominican Republic
Tel: 809 586 1597's insider take:

In the heart of Puerto Plata town, this low-key eatery serves up traditional Dominican dishes to a crowd of locals and tourists. The menu focuses on different preparations of mofongo (a dish made with mashed plantains and either meat, chicken, or seafood in a savory sauce), ceviche, and lobster. The atmosphere is nothing to get excited about, but the food, the good prices, and the prompt service (a relative rarity in the DR) are. Hours vary (especially during the off-season), so be sure to call ahead.
