Fantastic service, great prices (especially in an expensive hotel area), Sangria is delicious and potent, food was very good, though our entrees were only warm, not hot It would not prevent me from recommending Platos or going back! Overall experience was an 8+!

While visiting San Juan with my friends, we had lunch here. Food was great and so was the service! We had mufongo, passionfruit sangrias, spinach salad, el pequeno jibarito- all were great!

Great place to stop by if you're in the area and want some local food! We stayed at the Hampton Inn and it was just across the street. Great location for this restaurant, lots of hotels, and the beach is just a short walk away.

We have eaten here a couple of times on each visit to San Juan. Each time it has been quite good, hence our return. On this trip we arrived about 9 pm which is still an hour before scheduled closing. However, we were turned away by the hostess who said it was because they were having a slow night. She... More

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.
