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 location was perfect, everything was gorgeous, so delicate and romantic. 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. Everyone and everything over passed our expectations. I highly recommend for any activity, dinner (highly recommend the... More

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

The food was awesome but the drinks were very pricy. The house special drink was $10. The seafood mofongo was $28 and even if you think it's a lot the amount they give you is worth the price and good to share it's enough for 2 people.

After many years of coming to Dorado, we had yet to eat off a hotel's property. This trip we did and were delighted to find this restaurant. Great seafood and outstanding local PR dishes. Luis Garay, the owner is an interesting man and makes you feel most welcome and at home.

Wonderful open air restaurant right in the middle of Dorado. Owner usually is there and checks in on you. Wonderful place to grab a few drinks. Kid friendly. Its a great place to go take a break if you're tired of resort food or a Dorado local.

The atmosphere is nice in the outdoor seating, the staff is great and the owner, Luis, is very friendly - made sure everything was to our satisfaction as he visited with all the customers! This is a spot we return to for sure when in the area. We always get the mofongo relleno (had the fish this time), served in... More

My wife and I ate here twice two years ago and returned last night for another fantastic meal. We were openly greeted by the owner who remembered us. For dinner my wife ordered calamari and the tropical grouper, I had the grilled octopus and the mofongo with seafood. The calamari was light and not at all oily. The grouper was... More
