The primary appeal of this place is that it is open 24 hours. We went to Latin Star twice on late nights after 4am on our honeymoon. Both times we were made to feel like we were a bother to the waitresses on duty. On the 2nd trip, I didn't order anything because I was upset by the service the... More

Stopped by this place for lunch on my first day in San Juan. Dropped off my stuff at the nearby Marriott Stellaris and walked down the street looking for local cuisine. The service was good but food was just ok/average. I was starving so it hit the spot. What made me stop in was because 7 years earlier some friends... More

I got the rice and chicken. The sweat plantains were not very good which was disappointing because I love them. The food lacked flavor and tasted plain. The service was horrible. After out order was taken we only saw the server to deliver the food. It took over 10 minutes just to get our check. Overall the food wasnt good... More

I was super excited to try some mofongo, so we stopped in the Latin Star and I ordered their Mofongo with Crab. The mofongo itself lacked seasoning and flavor but the crab on top of it was delicious! The service was a little slow but it was crowded that night. Overall, the experience was average and unless you really want... More

Compared to so many other local places nearby, this place is good only if you are really hungry. For the quality of the food, the prices are a bit high. Mind you, I review restaurants all over the world and truly hate to bash on any establishment. I will say this, I did have a good little breakfast one morning... More

The restaurant is located in the heart of Condado and it is open 24 hours so it is very easy to end up there. The food is average to poor and expensive for what they serve. You can totally find something better around the area.

If you are familiar with Criollo type food you are in for a memory lane type of experience, just like home cooking. If you are not familiar with this type of food then you are in for a Culinary, mouthwatering experience. The ambiance is cool, they try to recreate a Puertorican type ambiance with many typical articles, and the waitress's... More

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico, and Latin Star was our first meal here. They offered traditional Puerto Rican food, and we really enjoyed it! It is located steps from our hotel. The service was a bit slow, but we were in no rush. We were not disappointed!

The mashed plantains weren't mashed, traded for mashed potatoes with horrible gravy. The grilled pork chops were very dry. Not very impressed. I expected much better.
