Romantic dinner for 2

Other than the charming ambience, there is not much to like here. It's one of the priciest restaurants in the area but the food was subpar. What really bugged us was the service. We walked in and stood waiting for about 15 minutes for anybody to greet us. Then they only had two waiters in the entire restaurant that would... More

From the minute you walk into this old fashion homey entree way, and the smells hit you, you know are in the right place. With a ambiance that is sadly no longer found too often any more, you are taken in with friendly service, and a traditional Puerto Rican menu. The grilled Pork chops were wonderful, the lobster sweet, the... More

Lovely homey atmosphere with local art on the walls. Menu that had it all from meat to fresh fish of the day. My grouper was perfect as was my husbands pork chop. Shrimp cocktail started the meal and chorizo in wine. Vanillabflan was the perfect ending. If in Dorado it's a must go!

We were visiting Dorado, PR on vacation to celebrate a milestone (60 years young) birthday with family and friends. It was a great experience. The food was delicious - the lobster, of many seafood dishes, prepared to perfection! The restaurant is family owned and operated and everyone was warm, gracious and helpful. The decor and artwork in the restaurant is... More

My husband and I had dinner at El Ladrillo (The Brick) on January 14th. It is family owned and operated. Lovely hospitality and wonderful food. We both had the Fricase Pollo, a regional dish that was delicious. The service is leisurely, giving plenty of time to enjoy conversation, drinks, and the remarkable artwork. We had lots of fun with our... More

We visited on January 2nd with our entire family (adults). Between us we had the filet mignon in red wine reduction (one of the best steaks ever - and we are used to Mortons and Ruths Chris), the whole snapper, the grilled grouper, garlic and wine shrimp and seafood paella, two soups, and two desserts - all of our meals...

I went, not once but twice to this establishment! !! Both times I left the kids behind because this restaurant is a romantic setting. You must make reservations, if not you will wait a long time for a table. So if you have gone and it took you forever to get service the fault is yours. The owners will personally... More

Delicious food and beautiful Restaurant! The staff was very friendly and while we went with our 3 older children and my parents, the place had a very romantic atmosphere. Beautiful paintings and artwork to look at while you wait for your food. Would definitly go again!
