“Excellent Puerto Rico Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I had dinner with 4 of my colleagues here last night. The food we ordered were recommendations from the nice lady who's son is the owner of the restaurant. For starters we had Sword Fish nuggets and Shrimp with Coconut batter. The appetizers were served within 5 minutes!

We had 3 entrees and now I forget the Spanish names of the dishes - rib eye with melted cheese on top with a side of plantains (trifungo), fried pork chop with crispy skin, and chicken fillet wrapped in bacon. The serving time was very reasonable and the food was served hot. All of the entrees came with a choice of white rice or rice with beans. We ordered cheese and pistachio flan for dessert. Excellent choices to end our dinner.

The hostess and the waitstaff were very fluent in English. They kept checking with us if everything was alright. We were taken care of and made to feel important.

This is a nice and quaint restaurant with adequate decor. It made me feel like I was really eating in Puerto Rico. There were TVs in each corner playing a video with Andrea Bocelli and other singers. Excellent atmosphere. This is a great place to bring family and friends if you're staying in a hotel nearby.

“Great Food in Dorado, Puerto Rico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I live in Dorado and my office is in the same buillding as this wonderful restaurant. Puerto Rico food with a touch of elegance and Latin style. Good service, Good wines! Friendly owner who tends the bar and always smiles. Dorado beach is right down the road and you can have your order to go. If you come to Dorado you have to try this place.

“Great food and experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We visited the Greenhouse Cafe in early December 2012 and had a great meal. Staff was very friendly. The place is small, but a fun experience. Would highly recommend!

“Possibly worst meal lifetime; how could anybody give positive review?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Food horrible. Service non-existent. Waited well over an hour to get inedible food. Can not believe some locals recommended it. Must be relatives of owner!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This was the best part of Dorado PR. The food is truly authentic, the service was wonderful, and the restaurant was clean and I didn't feel like I was getting ripped off. I really enjoyed it.
