Had a wonderful meal at LA Terraza. We had a great mojito and enjoyed the spicy shrimp empandilla. Anthony and others were also helpful with suggestions of places to visit while in the area. We went to the nearby Puma gas station and purchased an actual road map - this made navigation much easier as GPS goes out at the... More

Friendly atmosphere and great tasting food with a good presentation, but the prices were extremely high. The service was a bit slow but our waiter was very friendly. Do not try the cheesecake.

We found Restaurante La Terraza on our first night in Dorado and it was really nice. The staff was immediately welcoming and friendly, answering questions and describing the specials. The atmosphere of this open air restaurant is tropical with all the sounds of nature surrounding you. The menu has a lot of variety with many local specialities. Right off the... More

Ate on the patio with covered tables. They also have area with open seating and roof. A few times we heard cars racing in the street nearby but the tree frogs drowned the noise out. Owner came to talk to our table. Waiters were very friendly and helpful with the menu selections. They had a good size menu and just... More

Beautiful setting downstairs. We were not allowed upstairs since we had children in our party of 7. It seems I ordered the best out of all the meals at my table. The whole fried red snapper was delicious and a hit at my table. Everyone else's food was described as "ok". The fried cheese appetizer was dry and sauce was... More

If you're in Dorado and you don't eat here, your trip was an epic fail. Amazing food. Beautiful atmosphere and best of all, great service. I'm a pain when it comes to food/service. No complaints here....

We went back after a terrific experience the year before. Service was awful the food not much better. No one cared! After serving this below average food no one came over to the table to see how things were. We couldn't order dessert because the new waitress who finally came over didn't understand. A total disappointment! Too many better choices... More
