Wonderful menu, with full descriptions of authentic Puerto Rican and other Caribbean dishes provided. Have the mofongo, mashed/fried plantains stuffed with beef, shrimp, chicken, or fish, with appropriate sauces. Grouper chunks, deep fried, with aioli and maybe reduced Balsamic. Excellent steaks...and juicy burgers as well----can't miss. Live music Fri-Sat nights. Excellent time for families (earlier) to couples and friends (any... More

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott nearby and ventured into the neighborhood for dinner. We chose this restaurant for the colorful decor on the exterior, not knowing much about the menu. We were one of the first to arrive for dinner and seated promptly. I had the passion fruit sangria (sweet and refreshing) and my husband had a Medalla.... More

My wife and I told concierges at 2 different hotels that we were looking for a restaurant with local flavor and both suggested Platos to us during our stay in Puerto Rico. We booked it, but had reservations (ha!) when we saw the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor and Yelp. Our experience was wonderful though. We followed some of the food... More

A: this restaurant. Terrible service and inedible food do make for a pleasant experience. I'm not sure what was bought to our table but, it certainly wasn't paella. Please don't expect to enjoy a meal there.

We stop at Plato's often for their appetizers and a Medalla. A couple of the "must try's" are the plantain boat filled with meat and the sweet shrimp. They have entertainment some nights and the place is usually packed then, but if there is no big line outside, it is worth giving it a try. The regular menus is good,... More

My wife and I had dinner (February of 2015) at Platos and we generally enjoyed the food that we were served. My wife had a chicken mofongo with garlic sauce and I ordered the churrasco with mango chimichurri. These dishes were very tasty and nicely presented. BUT.... unfortunately, this review has a great many "buts." First, one's first impression upon... More

This was the least impressive food that I have had during my multiple visits to multiple parts of Puerto Rico. However, I'm stuck here because it was also some of the best service we have received. For drinks we had sangria which was an impressively-sized beverage but seemed to be mostly juice. Apps: chicken chicharrones, and 'fried cheese [I forget... More
