The food here was very good. Authentic puerto rican food. The issue we had was the wait for our food was almost an hour. If the waiter had told us it would be that long we would have ordered appetizers. It's just simply too long to wait for food.

We ate here our first night in San Juan. It was a great place to try out the local food. Definitely try the mofongo! We also had fresh caught fish. Our waiter was most helpful and gave us hints of places to go.

We got the Lobster Monfongo and the skirt steak. Both dishes were great. The Skirt steak was the better of the two. It was packed when we arrived, our server made us aware that it would be a bit of a wait in the kitchen. We appreciated the heads up. Overall, service, food and drink were a good value

Went with my brother in law who was there the week before as he enjoyed the duo Matices so we booked a table in the bar area and enjoyed ourselves. My sister in law loved her beef steak. My wife enjoyed her salmon. I found her salmon and my red snapper over cooked for my taste. But generous portion needed... More

Excellent service. There was a misunderstanding with my order, and it was immediately corrected. The plate -which was really nice- went on the house. That is what makes the difference between a good place and an evening to remember. I will be back!

The music is too loud and the food is bland. I ordered shrimp soup that turned out to be a shrimp less gumbo. The churrasco was well presented but it was totally flavorless, I won't go back.

This place was recommended to us by a gentlemen at the rental car place. We visited to on our way back leaving Puerto Rico. Parking can be rather tight depending on what day and time of the week you visit. Walking distance from the beach so you can form your own image. The food was phenomenal the prices not overly...

We were visiting beautiful Puerto Rico in August for a destination wedding and Platos was within walking distance from the hotel resort. Thank goodness it was! Absolutely fantastic food! I have no experience with Puerto Rican food but I am in love with it now! My only comment is the staff, who were very friendly and spoke English, were a... More
