Good Food, Family Friendly

This is the place to go in Dorado if you are craving local cuisine and some good seafood. The ambiance and service are consistently good, and the food is of superior quality. Alberto, the owner and Chef, is always around to please any particular cravings not on the Menu, and children can always... read more

This place is full of locals of dorado. It has local cuisine which is acceptable maybe good but never extraordinary. It has some nights live music which makes it impossibuto have a conversation when someone opens the doors to come into or out. Stick to the basics.

Decided to have a late lunch (4pm) on a rainy tuesday afternoon with my 8 family members. extensive menu, superb meal-local crab stew (salmorejo de jueyes) could not have been better. Huge grilled redsnapper (chillo), mofongo stuffed with shrimp, asopao de pollo (chicken stew), and my favorite, conch (carucho) salad. The restaurant was cleaned and all to ourselves. Glad to...

This casual restaurant offers great seafood and Puerto Rican specialities. The halibut and lobster were delicious! Very nice portion size and and very nice waitstaff.

my favorite dish is the octopus salad, which is always fresh and tasty. The prices have gone up and the quantity had shrunk but in general this is one of the most well known restaurants in Dorado. Good garlic bread. If you are a meat lover you should try the chuleta can can (pork chop) with tostones (fried plantains)

We've been coming to Dorado for about 8 years, and we never miss eating at La Villa Dorada de Alberto. The fish dishes are always fresh, and the service is always superb. The Spanish sausage and the fried cheese appetizers are excellent. If you're driving, the parking can be a bit dicey, but they usually have someone helping in the... More

A party of four. The air conditioning certainly was a plus. They stocked far more beers than most of the restaurants. Fish and shrimp dinners were very good, the sirloin steak was paper thin but "okay". Service was prompt and server spoke very good English.

Visited at night and had a fish (chillo al horno) which was excellent. Place was full but service was very good. I will recommend this place.

Looks like a dive from outside but is very nice inside. Across the street from the beach. Excellent conch salad. Interesting seafood dishes. Clean.
