Unique restaurant, but food and service did not meet our expectations

Aviones restaurant, in the town of Barranquitas, PR, is approximately a 1.5 hour drive from San Juan. The restaurant's venue is unique: they have two DC-3's and one Convair-440 embedded within this lush mountainous terrain. The inside of one of the DC-3's has been converted into seating area for... read more

Did not meet our expectations. The food was avarage and the service was poor. Some of the dishes from the menu were not available. After a long wait, part of the order was brought to the table and the rest came in about half an hour later. By then, some members of our group were almost done while the others... More

I believe the most attractive thing about this place is that dining is on board an open plane. Other that, there is really no scenic views. Also, they have sort of a motel on premises. Not the most appealing.

I read the reviews about Aviones Restaurant on Trip Advisor and was concerned about the bad reviews. My adult sons (airplane lovers, one of them a pilot) outvoted my concerns. I am happy they did. Appetizers, drinks, food, and service were excellent. It was deliciously cool up in the mountains where it is located. And where else can you dine... More

Came with a party of 12 and ordered food. Food did not take long and was very tasty. Ribs were undercooked and our party wanted to eat in one the planes but was told that it is very dusty and air conditioning was off.We were very satisfied and would like to recommend this this restaurant.

The only attraction was the airplane in the middle of the jungle. Just one waitress for two dinner rooms, the food was unseasoned, they took it so long to take our order. You can choose where to eat, but honestly the airplane is very tight and smell like moisture.

My husband and I live in the area. I purchased a coupon for four and to my surprise the food was enough for two. We tried to have our meal on the airplane but it was way to hot. Was told the air conditioned was down. The food was average and to my surprise the bill was manually added and... More
