We ate here our first night in Dorado. It was on the main street with parking on the side. Don't mind the roosters in the parking lot. The door is always locked but all you need to do is buzz the waiter and he'll let you in. The service and food was fabulous. Plus there's all kinds of cool art... More

Place was very quiet and staff was very friendly. Whole red snapper was cooked to perfection as was the skirt steak. Priced a bit above moderate but well worth it.
