I'm a local, and I live less than 5 minutes from Platano Loco, but it was a while since my last visit, so I went along with my husband and kids, and now that I'm reading last reviews on this place I fear it has become a hit-or-miss. It was past noon on a mid-January Saturday, so all the fuzz... More

Im a local, and I could travel from anywhere to get a "Burrifongo", (wich is a Burrito filled with chicken or ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and Mashed Plantains). The place is like a "Chinchorro/Restaurant". It's very inside the mountains of Aguada, so the views are amazing. I recommend the "sorrullitos of Plantains". All the food are inexpensive and tasty....

Getting there is a whole adventure on its own. Twist and turns galore it gets u dizzy getting up there its on the tip of the mountain. The food is mouth watering delicious with great prices and fast services. I recommend that you try the sopa de platano.

We visited this place a few years ago and last Saturday we went with friends and family. Now they have a big place and lot of space. Good food, but not so great.
