From start to finish this was dining at it's best! Ages 62-73. Ordered steak and seafood. All done perfectly and at the same time. Our waiter Hiram was exceptional as well as the rest of the staff attending to us. Desserts also were exquisite. Décor was by local artists and you could see the personality of the owners everywhere. Can't... More

My husband and I came here based off the recommendation from a local. We actually came here 3 times on our trip. Yes the food was that good. You have to come here. They speak English and are very friendly.

I wanted to try something local and different, and this place will go past your wildest dreams! Let's start with the service. My server was Benny and from the time that I walked in I felt like family. When I asked him to give me a taste of Puerto Rico through his eyes, he started me off with an octopus... More

Outside of the Ritz compound there are really few fine dining restaurants in dorado. El ladrillo has an old world Puerto Rican charm. Really enjoyed our dinner, service was great, ambiance wonderful and had offstreet parking lot. Highly recommend.

Food was good. Got baby snapper and house potato. Even broccoli was good. Sangria was awesome and big glass for $5.95. Restaurant was dark and could be romantic but service was super slow so plan time to be there. Music was very mellow. Parking lot right next door so that was handy. Waiter needed to pay more attention to table... More

Three of us had dinner there tonight, Friday, 9/9/16. We arrived about 6:30 and there were only a few tables with customers. We had Sangria, which was really good, and pretty reasonable, about $6.95. We ordered fairly soon. We ordered the baby snapper, salmon, and a chicken dish. There was a long wait for the food, but it was presented... More

Went here tonight celebrating my daughters 14th birthday and was blown away with everything from the service to the food. I ordered a sangria which came adorned with a starfruit and when one of our waiters heard that she loved that fruit he came back and brought her a whole starfruit, then suggested a starfruit frappé which was so delicious!...

The food was good however it felt like the waiter definitely led us towards the more expensive menu items AND he substituted a more expensive wine for the one we selected. As a result our "average" night on the town became the most expensive meal of the trip.

Located in the town of Dorado a few blocks from the town square, El Ladrillo is an upscale spot to experience Puerto Rican cuisine. We have been a few times and it has been a consistently enjoyable experience. They do have a dedicated parking lot for the restaurant. It is good for groups, good for a quiet couples night out,...
