We had some really good food at El Dorado. The service was very friendly and fast and the ambience is nice as well. Obviously it is a little bit more pricey to eat European instead of Thai food, but is is absolutely worth the money!

Great place, great food, great staff.sit in the back or at the front for some people-watching :-) Diefferent style cuisine makes it a bit of trouble selecting the right one

Good restaurant with a big variety of food. There is a daily special board which all look delicious. To be honest we could have eaten most of the menu. Would definitely recommend.

We went to this restaurant for BBQ. We were seated and served quickly. Food was good - several types of meat, vegetable salads, salsas... Interior was nice and clean and prices were reasonable. BBQ all you can eat for 290 TBH.
