This place is great! Great location, good environment, fresh food and the people are awesome. Make sure you meet the owner "El Capitan". He played on the movie Runner Runner which as filmed in Puerto Rico. They have seasoned entrees so call in advance to see if they have fresh marlin or shark! The place is brand new and the... More

Being a local I was surprised the place was empty. We ordered the kids meal that arrived promptly. The waiter later came with our entrees and told us "the kitchen did not do your appetizers" there was no explanation nor they offered a way to mend this. Will not come back!

Very tasty local food, nice presentation, and friendly service. It's Not a tourist trap or overpriced hotel-restaurant. The decor is very modern nicely done. The only bad little thing was that the bathrooms didn't have paper towel and the location is hard to find - some signage off the main road might help. Patio is beautiful and we really enjoyed...

The seafood was fresh and beautifully presented. Place is well decorated with local artist paintings. Our waitress Yennessi was very thoughtful and always caring for our needs! Great value at Dorado area!

My friend and I drove by this place while looking for the public beach and scouting real estate in the area; we decided we'd try it out a couple hours later, when we later arrived we asked if we could sit on the outside patio as I had my dog with me, they happily said yes and asked if they...

Costa Criolla is an EXCELLENT restaurant! On a suggestion from our hotel, Hyatt Hacienda del Mar, we tried this restaurant – and were delighted! It was little difficult to find in the dark, but we were seated immediately upon our arrival on the outside deck for a warm evening’s dinner in March – while everyone at home was freezing! The...

I love discovering authentic, local cuisine when traveling. This is definitely it. This bright, airy restaurant is packed with locals of all ages. Our family of four (two picky eaters) had no problem finding someone to eat. The halibut with mango sauce was perfect. The drinks were half the price of those at the nearby resorts. Service was friendly and... More
