Based on other TripAdvisor reviews we were expecting some really good food. I had chicken fajitas and although they were sizzling, the lacked spices and were fairly bland. My husband had a massive pork chop which he liked. Waitress had to admit the vegetables were frozen. Bocelli was still singing.

The Chimichurri and Mofungo was quite tasty and plentiful. The televisions were all tuned to a PBS special with Andrea Bocelli (it was afterall Valentine's Day). The service was excellent as was the Sangria.

We decided to try this placed based on other traveler reviews. After having to buzz in for entry we were motioned to choose a table in this relaxed yet strange environment. The atmosphere was a mix of faux brick over cracked stucco with some sort of Vegas singer performance being played on several tvs throughout the dining area. This DVD kept sticking and skipping which was just about as bad as the content it was trying to play. Atmosphere aside, the food was FABULOUS. I ordered grouper in mango sauce. My husband ordered the special which was encrusted grouper stuffed with lobster and covered in a garlic cream sauce. Both dishes were superb. The fish was very fresh and cooked to perfection. It was served with a nice side salad w/cranberries and almonds and a choice of a side. We ordered traditional rice and beans. While it took a bit of time for the meal to arrive (30 minutes) it was worth the wait. The restaurant wasn't overly crowded and the time waiting for the meal was reasonable. The service as okay as there was only one waiter taking care of all the tables in the restaurant - about 6 or 7 in all. The meal was medium priced - about $51 for 2 entrees and 1 beer not including the tip.

My mom and I had dinner here while staying at the Hyatt. We had a light dinner of Caesar salad and rice and beans. The attention to detail was incredible (please see picture of the pita crisp that said "Greenhouse Cafe" - so neat!) The food was delicious, but was a little overpriced for what we got (most restaurants in this area are quite overpriced, though). The service was excellent and the interior of the restaurant was very nicely decorated. It had a sort of Italian/Tuscan theme. Great find in Dorado!!

We loved this place! Beware the authentic PR food though - we had no idea everything was so fried! The grilled mahi mahi was amazing, and they had a fantastic stout beer locally brewed (harbor something?). The atmosphere was relaxing, we watched a marc anthony concert on the TVs while we waited for our food, very entertaining. Our waiter spoke English well and was very polite. I recommend this place, but stay away from the appetizers if you don't like fried/greasy.
