El Dorado dish up whole and protein-rich food, such as steak or fish, baked potatoes along with a side of herb rice and veggies. Among appetizers Chat Potato (BDT 99), Nachos (BDT 180/250), Wrap (BDT 249/199), Alfredo Pasta (BDT 270), Calamari Rings (BDT 250) and Dori Fish and Shrimp Mix Burger (BDT 360) are mention worthy.

Well from mains had some of their signature dishes. The luscious Lemon Butter Fish (BDT 420) left me surprised with its tangy taste. Served with fresh herb rice, the best thing about this mouth-watering dish is the rich and zesty sauce that elevates its taste and makes you crave for more. Crusted Sirloin Beef Steak (BDT 780) was delicious. A blend of mild spices and mushroom sauce creates a smoky, crunchy coating on grilled beef sirloin, served on a bed of herb rice and veggies are spellbound.

Simple but tasty and with lots of flavoursome sauce, Valencia Chicken (BDT 359) was worth having. The bright orange sauce along with chat potato and sautéed vegetable is low in calorie. This low fat elegant chicken is a must have. Cilantro Chicken (BDT 359) had tons of incredible flavour. The zesty cilantro-lime marinade was amazing. And the chicken comes out perfectly juicy and tender.

The whole Grilled Red Snapper (BDT 780) was a bang on. The mild flavour of snapper fish fillet was moist, tender and flavourful. Highly recommended for seafood enthusiasts.
