The hospitality of this restaurant stands out. The host and waiters continuously checked on our family to ensure we had what we needed. The meal started with complimentary hummus and chips- delish. For dinner we had skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, whole fried snapper, and fish tacos. The food... read more

Both food and service , just not acceptable. The last and final visit, food took over 90 minutes and when finally showed up was wrong and I found metal and... More

My husband, daughter and I dined here on 4/9/15. The food was excellent! The staff were very helpful in explaining the food dishes to us. My daughter was contemplating ordering the Mofango but was not quite sure what it was. The waitress went above and beyond when she brought out a plantain and the bowl it would be served in... More

We dined here last night. It was Monday so there were not many diners. Our host promptly greeted us and took our drink order. Several in our party ordered the La Terraza which is their signature rum drink. It was delicious. For food we ordered fish tacos and skirt steak dumplings with chimichurri. The dumplings were really tasty and interesting.... More

We found this place after traveling from the states to Dorado for almost 10 hours. It was on a list the hotel provided us of restaurants in the area and we... More

Thumbs down!!! 1 hour wait for the food; only to be delivered to half of our party. Skirt steak, monfongo, cheesebuger and quesadilla....not a fan!!! Plus someone doubled parked behind us and blocked us in. Needless to say we all have stomach aches.

We were treated as if we were the most important guests in the restaurant but I'm pretty certain all the other patrons felt as special. The waiter guided us from the start of service and our party of five was thrilled with each delicious selection. The mofongo was exceptional. The outdoor seating area was delightful but when the first raindrops... More

We enjoyed Calamares (fried squid), Mero Calamar (grouper), Arroz y Habichuelas (rice and beans) , and Flan de Vainilla (Spanish-style vanilla custard) on on outdoor terrace. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was very helpful in recommending dishes to try. My only complaint is that the lighting was so dim that I could not enjoy the food presentation.
