Great first meal on the island

We were picking up our rental car next door and asked the rep where we could get a good meal (since the airlines don't even give you pretzels anymore -- cheap sobs -- thank you for letting me vent). He recommended Platos and it did not disappoint. My bride had the plantain stuffed chicken and I... read more

We walked to Platos from the Ritz. Easy stroll. Heard the sangria was very good. Ordered the passion fruit sangria. It was good but had pulp threads from some fruit, that made it hard to enjoy. I ordered the pork with onions and sweet plantains. The pork had a sweet glaze on it. Good but not great. Plantains were ok.... More

as soon as we walked in felt the place wanted to be upscale on a low budget, we were shuttled to a table where the hostess had promised it to someone else. so we were shuttled to another table at the other end of the restaurant and it smelled as if had rained on the chairs and the cushions had...

Not a flashy place but excellent food. Down the block from El San Juan, great atmosphere, excellent sangria and great food. Large portions with authentic Puerto Rican Cuisine..

The food was really good, we were out to find authentic Puerto Rican food and this seemed like a good choice. We had Mofongos and dipping bread to name a few dishes. It was little pricey but normal for the area. The dim lighting really set the mood and we were glad we chose this place.

Food selection here is good and located among many hotels in area. Walking distance from them. I prefer their mofongo with shrimp, very good. They can be a little pricey

We were in San Juan Aug 9-14. We were walking close to our condo and decided we'd stop in to Plato's for lunch. It turned out to be our favorite place that week. I had the bacon-wrapped chicken stuffed with plantains, with a side of rice and beans. My wife had a dish with pork, cheese and plantains with rice... More
