This is a cozy restaurant with eclectic decorations. They have a parking lot (definitely a plus in Puerto Rico). They take reservations and I recommend you make one as space can be limited. The service is good but definitely slow so don't come into the restaurant starving!. The salads and vegetables are nothing to write home about but the fish... More

Found El Ladrillo on Trip Advisor and decided to try it because their menu included not only steaks, fish and shellfish but Paella which my husband loves. When we arrived we weren't sure the restaurant was open but discovered that there is a buzzer at the front door. The interior has a very European/Spanish feel and features beautiful art throughout...

We joined friends while spending a few days in Dorado and decided to dine nearby for a dinner out. The atmosphere was subtle old world with candles and artwork on all the walls. We were seated promptly and drinks offered immediately. The menu had a variety of offerings and specials. We chose chicken dishes, seafood and a pasta dish. Everyone... More

Called the day of for reservation and restaurant was able to accommodate the three of us. The front door is locked but don't let that fool you, inside is a beautiful and cozy restaurant that you don't want to miss. Artwork covers the wall and our waiter "Tony from the Bronx" could not have added more color to the atmosphere.... More

The service and staff were exceptional (Tony from the Bronx was a delight and made us feel like we have known him forever, very warm, charming, and so helpful with giving menu selections). The meal was terrific from start to finish. We dined as family of 5 with all enjoying each unique dish. The PR meals were amazing and so... More

We stayed at a hotel with 2 good restaurants but one evening we wanted to try something else. We took a chance and drove into the Dorado town center. In the evening the town was deserted, everything closed, dark, we were just going back to the hotel when this interesting looking restaurant showed up. It stood out from the rest,... More

Amazing in every way - personality and character, delicious food, great service, reasonable prices, beautiful atmosphere, best art gallery in a restaurant anywhere, friendly owners there serving as well, great sangria pitcher - we've tried a lot of top-rated restaurants in Puerto Rico and found this to be better in overall. The paella was amazing, as well as the tuna... More
