Reviews for Platano

Loved the food at Plátano. As a Salvadoran it’s nice to see a restaurant that is dedicated to bringing traditional food to you. Came at lunch time for my father’s birthday to celebrate. Very heavy plates with handmade tortillas. Only issue I had is towards the back of the restaurant it’s a bit dark and not a lot of lights turned on so it gives the restaurant a bit of a gloomy vibe. If more lights were turned on it would be a lot better, but the food is definitely full review

I have walked by Platano many times and finally decided to go in and try it. Boy was I glad! If you llke yummy foods centered around beans, rice, meats etc come try this place out. The yucca can be fried if you ask for it. I tried the Pollo asado and it was great!

Another one I forgot to write, for over ten years I have visited this spot in Berkeley. I have even eaten at the the sister restaurant in Lathrop, and Cafe in Tracy. All excellent, with variations in the menus per location. My favorite dinner is Pollo Asado, a grilled drumstick and thigh with casamenito and black beans. A hearty dinner that never misses. Great charring flavor. Get a side of plantains, and you can skip desssert. If you want something different, try the full review
