Platos serves tasty food to a mix of tourists from the resorts as well as local residents. There was a big birthday party going on at one end of the restaurant so we were treated to a saxophonist and singer while we ate. They are famous for mofongo, but we had a Pequeno Jibarito appetizer and the Paella Valenciana. Both... More

It was a Sunday night and we wanted to venture into Old San Juan to see the night life but our hotel concierge informed us most places close around 10pm and it was already after 8pm. He recommended Platos in Isla Verde which was within walking distance from our hotel. Our waitress, Stephanie, was very friendly and was helpful in... More

It's not the most authentic puerto rican cuisine, however the service was very good. The server was polite and knowledgeable about the menu. We decided to go here because it was very close to our hotel. A little pricey and the food was ok. we ordered two white sangrias- great! mofongo- steak- it was a little dry but garlic sauce... More

the food, atmosphere, service and especially the food are top notch. josh did a great job explaining the menu and serving our delightful dinner. this was definitely a high point during our stay in puerto rico. the kiosks and roadside stands operated by the locals also delivered great food. we will return.

We came upon this restaurant only because the place we picked out to dine at was closed. What a great place! Our waiter Josh was very nice. We had Sangria and shared an appetizer. My husband got the Skirt Steak and I got the stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon. Both meals were very good.

Wonderful coconut sangria, the skirt steak empanada appetizer was great and the chicken breast stuffed with plaintain and wrapped with bacon was fantastic and the chocolate cake was to die for! My hubby says it was the best meal he has had in a long time! Great service and nice ambiance as well!

The outside of this place is very decorated but once you step inside it's more elegant looking and has some beautiful art. The food was delicious!!! The price is a little high but definitely worth it. The staff was okay didn't really converse much, just checked on us a couple of times. The waiter messed up one order so by... More

A woman at the front desk of Embassy Suites suggested that we try this restaurant. I'm so glad she did. The trifongo was amazing! The service is a bit slow and our waitress forgot to bring us something we asked for. Other than that, my salmon w/pineapple and mango salsa was delish. We went back on our last day to... More
