Really good flavors and excellent service, I ordered the churrasco and mofongo and was really tasty, I didn't order alcohol but I think the pitcher of sangria was about $30 and they have multiple flavors! The service was great place looked clean and neat.

Beautiful Restaurant, I felt welcomed and my food was very good. I had chicken and shrimp Alfredo. What a delight, my passion fruit Margarita was perfect, could of been a little a stronger but it was fine. Clean looking environment and enjoyable scenery due to it being right off of a main street

This was a quaint little restaurant. I had the shrimp fettuccini and some sort of fried cheese and both were delicious. The coconut sangria is beyond delicious.

This was a great little restaurant in walking distance of our hotel. We had the Monfongos - Langosta/Lobster and the Fried Whole Red Snapper. Both entrees were delish - with more than enough food. We actually ordered more than we could eat - they gladly boxed our leftovers for us. The Coconut Sangria was wonderful! Our waitress Christina was lovely... More

We had a nice dinner at Plato's, located near our hotel. Puerto Rican food is the specialty. Wine is available by the glass. Beer is cold. The Churrasco is recommended.

One of the first restaurants that we visited in San Juan was Platos. The food was wonderful - we had the Queso Frito Del Pais appetizer, Mofongo Pollo, and El Jibarito/Guisado which we shared. Drinks can be a bit pricey - $13.00 for champagna sangria (it was delicious though.)

I like to try new foods when I travel and while this restaurant was very authentic and indicative of the local cuisine, I personally was just not a fan of the local style of cooking. Ceviche is good if prepared right but the plantains that Puerto Rico is so famous for are just a little bland and monotonous for me.... More

We went to Platos on our short visit in San Juan. I am Puerto Rican but live in the US. I ordered the Lobster Mofongo. 4 members of our family ordered the Churrasco Mofongo and my mother ordered soup. The soup was the only really good thing we tasted. My lobster mofongo smelled when they put it in front of... More

Service was terribly slow. But, to try to make up for it they offered us a free drink from the bar. That was also slow. Our food showed up at the same time. It was nice that they tried to compensate us. :-) The only saving grace for this place is the mamposteao rice. If you go here you MUST... More
