We had spent the morning at Hot Springs in Coamo, Puerto Rico, and we looking for a nice place to have lunch. A friend had mentioned El Platanar so when we saw the sign we drove up the hill to the restaurant. It is huge but when we arrive it was not very busy. When we left over an hour... More

The service was very good, prices are great and the servings are huge. The service was faster than i expected judging for the amount of people that were eating. The waitress was very helpful and courteous. We have a very good time without expending a lot and the food was delicios. Well be back soon....I recomend it to everybody.

My dad who lives in PR took us to this restaurant which he goes to regularly. I guess he is so used to it that he does not notice what is going on. The service is awful, starting with the waitress who took forever to even take the drink order. Then after the drinks and taking the order it was... More

You can see from the pictures that the food is unique. An interesting mix of a Plantain restaurant with HUGE servings. Most menu items are for 2 or 4, but can be ordered for just one. But get a doggie bag anyway!! Service was slow, but that seems to be the Puerto Rican way. This is not fast food –... More

It is understandable that on Mothers Day it would be a waiting time but it is unacceptable a waiting time of five hours and no even an update on the order.The staff was not friendly at all!! and they kept forgetting the drinks and beverage.

If I have anything good to say, it would be that the view is a beautiful and that the portions are very large....that is where anything good ends.....The waiter could have cared less if he waited on us or not, we would have to ask 3 or 4 times for something. I ordered the 2 lb. pork chops, my wife... More
