This place was beyond delicious. Perfect way to start our vacation. The owner was welcoming and the atmosphere relaxing. The chef recommendations for the day were spot on and everything was better than we had hoped it would be.

This restaurant was close to hotel and we went there in the rain. Service was very good. I had the pins colada shrimp which was very good. Ambiance was very nice. Could be romantic. It was a very enjoyable dinner!

Tremendous service from the owner (Luis) himself! He came over and welcomed my family and said "mi casa es su casa" and then showed us to our table. He served us our meal (I had seafood mofongo and it was delicious) and the desserts were just amazing. Fantastic food, fantastic service... period. If you're a first timer to Puerto Rico... More

Great local place we visiting while staying in Dorado. The place was a nice surprise. The staff were great and the food was even better. Fairly priced and great value.

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!🤗
