My husband and I ate there on our last day in PR, while the food was a bit SALTY it was pretty good. Chicaron de pollo was very good but salty. All of the plates were reasonably priced. I would recommend that they cook with less salt.

The best thing about this place was the coconut sangria. I found the food a little dry. The service was slow, but why would I be in a rush in Puerto Rico.

I had the opportunity to dine at Platos Restaurant my first night in Puerto Rico. The fresh Red Snapper with rice and beans was delicious! The portion were huge enough to share. We also ordered the green mussels in saffron sauce appetizer which was outstanding. They also serve excellent wine and coconut sangria. Our server was very nice and helped... More

The server recommended the Churrasco, grilled flank steak, so that was one of the meals we tried. Our piece was very chewy and not that tender with more fat than should be expected. That dish was disappointing. Our other meal was the Chicken Breast in a Creole Sauce which was very good. Also very good were the selection of Sangrias.... More

We had a great experience at Platos during our first night in San Juan. Platos is a quick walk from the Intercontinental Hotel and it came highly recommended by our bellman. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was crowded when we arrived, but we were quickly accommodated by the efficient staff within 10 minutes (we had no reservations.)... More

I visited this restaurant my first night in PR. The food is great. Try the coconut sangria! They will even bottle it up for you to take with you if you order a pitcher of it.

Ate dinner here twice. Enjoyed the skirt steak; very well presented. Drinks are ample. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very nice atmosphere.

The restaurant was very nice. The food was good, but the drinks were better. TRY THE COCONUT SANGRIA!!!!!!!!!! The service was a little shaky and the food could have been a little better (they ran out of shrimp for my paella!!) but the drinks made up for it.

I've had good home cooking...this is not it. Maybe the chef was having a bad day but this food was terrible. The beans were slimy, the rice was hard, the meat was covered in some fruit sauce. What is this? I feel this is just for those ignorant tourists who don't know what good Puerto Rican food is. It's a... More

I always wanted to go to this restaurant, because I had heared great things about, and it was all true. The service was great, the food even better. Best experience eating mofongo with skirt steak that I ever had.
