19 of us descended upon the restaurant but as we had phoned and ordered head they were prepared for us. Food was good especially the grouper with sweet lemon sauce. Service was good but coffee maker was broken meaning our last night in PR was without coffee and flan.

Phenomenal authentic Puerto Rican cuisine - went with an eclectic group of 6 friends and all of us had a terrific meal - empanadas, sort steak, pork was amazing. Get the "mashed tubers" as a side dish. They aren't potatoes exactly but they are root veggies that when mashed and prepared taste like the best union of Thanksgiving mashed potatoes... More

Second time in puerto rico- and we returned to plato's because it was so good on our first trip. It did not disappont! From the mojito to the fried cheese appetizer, chicken mofongo and shared coconut flan everything was perfect. And the service even better!

Had dinner here with friends. There was a live band. For dinner we had the Churrasco (skirt steak). Cooked perfectly! The sauce they use on it is delicious! Their passion fruit Sangria is also super tasty! Our waitress was extremely nice & did a great job. The dress code is casual. Also a fine place for kids to have dinner.... More

This is the food of my wife's heritage and after many years of marriage it has become a favorite of mine as well. We very much enjoyed Platos empanadas as an appetizer. I had the Mahi-Mahi filet with coconut-passion fruit glaze over a tuber mash. The fish was cooked to my liking...it was tender and flakey and not dry...the glaze... More
