My family and I had a great dinner here after calling first to see if they could accommodate our vegan diet. And accommodate they did! Tony suggested the eggplant creole dish with some plantains, both sweet and regular. We also ordered salads, red beans and rice and a baked potato to share. Our onmivore son ordered the Pechuga a la... More

We ate here and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is neat and the food is great! The wine selection was very large, which was also nice.

El Ladrillo is a family owned restaurant in the town of Dorado. One of the few restaurants with fresh everything, from juices to fish and lobster, steaks also great!! The local side dishes, like tostones, and rice and beans are great too, and we are locals, so we know. It has been in Dorado for more than 30 years, and... More

So our only regret is we found out about this restaurant the last night before traveling back home otherwise we would eat here everyday. The food was absolutely delicious, we had lobster, broiled fish and seafood stew all were phenomenal. My daughter who is not a seafood lover asked the waitress if she can get her chicken Alfredo, no where... More

My family and I visited recently and had a wonderful experience. Tony was our waiter, and not only was he extremely well versed on the menu, but the history of the restaurant itself. We even had the pleasure of dining along side Ponce's famed artist Wichie Torres whose artwork was displayed throughout the restaurant (yes, pieces were also on sale).... More

We have been dining at this restaurant for over 20 years. For classic dining it is a wonderful experience. The food is prepared perfectly and the ambiance is lovely. The walls are lined with dozens of paintings from local artists and visiting Ladrillo is like a trip to a museum! The staff is warm and welcoming and the service is... More

We were looking for a highly rated place to get lunch on our way back to the hotel from the beach. We decided to give this place a try and were very happy we did! The place is beautiful and so is the food. A word of caution, this is not a casual dinning spot, we arrived and immediately felt... More

Had the most amazing time here. Came here with friends for our last dinner and we dressed in all white. The drinks and food were really good. Kind of on the pricey side but I think it's worth it. The art on the wall definitely was the icing on the cake. Loved all the pieces. Recommend it.
