“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Costa Criolla is an EXCELLENT restaurant! On a suggestion from our hotel, Hyatt Hacienda del Mar, we tried this restaurant – and were delighted! It was little difficult to find in the dark, but we were seated immediately upon our arrival on the outside deck for a warm evening’s dinner in March – while everyone at home was freezing!

The Special that night was a seafood soup served in gigantic bowls – which I couldn’t finish! It was delicious! My husband finished mine after he devoured his excellent sea bass dinner!

The wine was good, the service was excellent and everything was reasonably priced. You owe it to yourself to dine at this really good restaurant on your next trip to Dorado!

“A great local find”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I love discovering authentic, local cuisine when traveling. This is definitely it. This bright, airy restaurant is packed with locals of all ages. Our family of four (two picky eaters) had no problem finding someone to eat. The halibut with mango sauce was perfect. The drinks were half the price of those at the nearby resorts. Service was friendly and bathrooms immaculate. Worth the taxi fare.

We didn't eat outside (it was raining) but we saw outdoor seating.

“Pretty Bland”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Disappointed. The Sangria and bread were excellent but food was bland. I ordered paella but this was just seafood served with rice and it was bland and the mussels could have been fresher

“Nice taste of Peurto Rico.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, a nice introduction to Peurto Rico. Don't sit outside, too many motorcycles riding by made for a loud evening!
