Food was very good and fish dishes were about $20. The bread?? Soup was excellent. I was not happy with $6.50 for a medium sized bottled water.

We looked for a local restaurant to provide a family dinner and decided to try La Terraza. We were able to be seated on the back balcony patio -outdoor seating. The service was prompt for drinks and our meal but we had trouble reading the menus and seeing our food! We used our phones for light- only one candle on... More

Luis and his staff are extremely warm and friendly. We called the same day for a reservation and they were able to accommodate us. We had a lovely time, the only downside is that the food took quite long to come out but when it did it was very tasty. It is open air which is wonderful in PR and... More

This was an OK dinner, but not the super special Xmas Eve experience we were hoping for. First of all, it's really odd to arrive for dinner at 7:45 and be the ONLY folks there on a busy holiday night in a tourist town. It started to fill up by the time we left but felt pretty dead and awkward... More

We were on a family vacation to Puerto Rico. My wife and I like finer restaurants but the kids are kids. We all absolutely loved this place, even the kids. The service was amazing and their attention to detail and kids was perfect. The food was outstanding. Would highly recommend!

Visited this restaurant on our last night in Dorado. The owner, Luis Garay, could not have been more accommodating (we were a party of 10 without a reservation). We all enjoyed the various meals that were beautifully served, not the typical Puerto Rican food which we had a lot of during this trip. (not complaining!) All our meals were served... More

Place is great for a patio dining experience, but so dark to see what your are actually eating. The presentation of all the meals we were served and surrounding tables was mouthwatering but I wish I could say the same for the quality. Service was really slow and we waited for over 45 min for apps and then meal immediately... More

Not only was our service by Tara the most attentive and friendly and accommodating we could ever want but every dish, from appetizers which we customized to the plantain-crusted snapper that was outstanding - they were all beautifully prepared and served and delicious. Everything about this restaurant is really beyond what you would expect for the location and reasonable prices!... More

Went to La Terraza for a business dinner. We all had various seafood dishes. I had grouper, it was fresh and well prepared. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. The terrace allows for outdoor seating. The owner came over several times to ensure we enjoyed our meals.

There were 8 in our party and Ada handled us so smoothly and timely that we were never in need of anything. Our food was amazingly delicious and backed up by 5 stars from a diverse group of people (Jamaicans, Americans, British and an Italian). We were in Dorado for 4 nights and visited on our 1st night. We tried... More
