We had not been to La Terraza in maybe ten years. We have it another try and would say it is just okay. Their menu has changed. Not quite the variety of Puerto Rican food I would have preferred. Service was good. Atmosphere is fun. Just not a memorable time.

This place earns five stars for service, the staff was very attentive, willing to accommodate our special requests and very efficient. The menu was somewhat limited, but has a bit of everything. Three of the dishes were great, but my stuffed chicken was a bit salty.

This restaurant offers great food and quick friendly service. I recommend sitting on the 2nd floor deck. They grow their own herbs onsite too. You can choose from Puerto Rican or American style food.

We were in Puerto Rico a little before Spring break season and had a hard time finding places with people! This was a fun spot off a main road that had really good food and good service. Yummy drinks too. Worth the stop.

Went to Puerto Rico looking for mofongo. Found the best seafood mofongo at La Terraza which made my anniversary meal out of this world!🤗

Excellent food and outstanding service, with the owner himself welcoming you in and presenting the daily specials. Stay away from the "House Drink". not worth the $10.00. Be prepared to pay high $$ for your meals. Dining area is not enclosed and ceiling fans do not provide enough cool air to be comfortable.

The service was more than excellent, everyone from the supervisor to the bartender and the waiters were more than attentive and kind, not to mention helpful. The food was to die for.

Casual and friendly atmosphere in the heart of Dorado. Food is good and entrees are plentiful. Choices for all kinds of dietary persuasions. The owner came over to say hello and was clearly present for the staff and guests. A lovely evening.

Highly recommend a visit. The owner, Luis welcomed us with open arms! He and his staff were attentive and fun. The atmosphere was intimate. Red snapper filet was good and the skirt steak w/ mofongo was pretty good. Request your steak Med-well rather than Med to ensure it is done. Luis went the extra mile and invited us to a... More
