Great food and attentive service

Stopped in for dinner and had a great meal. We had the calamari and plantain soup for apps. The calamari was great. The soup interesting and tasty. We are not plantain fans unless they are fried and caramelized, so to like it says a lot. The entrees were very good. We had the grouper in a citrus... read more

We ate here at our first night in Dorado and almost went back. The hummus appetizer they bring out for all is just delicious! We begged for another serving :-) My husband had the grouper - was prepared a bit differently than he had thought but was delicious just the same. I had the grilled shrimp - were probably 12...

If your in Dorado, you must eat here! The atmosphere is lovely & relaxing. The food is very fresh & tasty. We had the calamari but the main attraction is the whole red snapper.,its huge & delicious. The owner Luis is very attentive & goes out of his way to make sure you have a great dining experience.

Highly recommend this Delightful dining experience! Enjoyed authentic local fare, with perfect pr flavor combinations. Chef Ricardo balances sublime with signature dishes. We were a party of 4, enjoyed Tropical Grouper, 2nd grouper with a compound butter sauce, and grilled coconut encrusted shrimp. The wait staff was attentive, the owner Luis was gracious. Save room for dessert! Loved the crepes... More

It was nice that the owner greeted us and immediately made us feel welcome. The food and drinks were delicious. Our waiter, Steven was great as was the rest of the staff. The average price per plate was low $20s.

Went to La terraza on our first night in dorado. It was a great start to our vacation! Had yummy sangria and sat on the back porch! Had the crab cakes app and they were the best I have ever had. Our whole party had seafood (grouper, snapper and shrimp) all good! Would definitely come back and the owner was... More

Even as a Vegetarian I received a very great meal upon request. My colleague (non-vegetarian) was also impressed. The restaurant is close to the beach and it is very nice to sit outside. I have been here several times, but years ago and it is still great!

this restaurant has so much tropical atmosphere--it is open air & lovely--we went there tonight & had a wonderful waiter named Anthony serve us--had the whole red snapper & an Asian chicken pasta--each were very good--we met the charming owner Louis also--he really cares about the business, you can tell--everyone was so friendly--we had the most enjoyable evening out.....
