Very fun, friendly restaurant. The food was just as good as I remembered it from 6 years ago. The patio was very nice. Food was served tapas style. Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience. From the service to the food everything was top notch. Highly recommended!
Very good food but portions were really small. Bathroom wasn’t very clean, didn’t match the ambiance of the restaurant
Flavors were amazing and food was very fresh. Small portions/plates, but well worth it.
An extremely creative tasting menu, excellent wine pairings, and a staff that was warm and inviting. Great value and vibe.
Extra kudos: It’s so rare for a restaurant of this caliber to be so welcoming to a couple with a 1 year old baby in tow.
Thank you guys for an excellent evening!
Awesome experience on vacation. A must try. Food was awesome and very vibey
We had a great experience and food. Very creative. Good wine list of Spanish wines.
food taste and vine pairing good but too fast between acts.Hard liquor very expensive.
The special anniversary menu was fine but not what I was looking for. Since I was in Puerto Rico for only one night, I had no choice but to stay at the restaurant. Otherwise, I would’ve gone elsewhere. I went there looking for the Beef Wellington and since the regular menu was not feasible, it was included as an option, a minuscule portion. Always excellent but really disappointed by the portions of the plates. Service was very good.
Went to celebrate a special occasion and left completely dissatisfied and disappointed. Didn’t have great food, not a great service, loud noises. The only thing that was good was the cocktail but that was about it.
Food was extremely eclectic. Went with my wife and we each got 3-4 plates. About half of them were amazing and the other half were underwelming. The white fish was absolutely out of this world. All in all not quite worth the price that was paid unless you are very appreciative of really "out there" recipes.
The food was really good, small portions but you have the choice of picking 3 choices for 45-50$ so you won’t leave hungry...but not super full either. I had the coqueto cocktail and it was really good!
Comida excelente aunque tardó un poco en salir el primer plato. Después de eso la espera entre platos fue poca. Servicio excelente también. Las sillas son incómodas, sobre todo cuando estuvimos 2.5 horas sentados en lo que todos los platos fueron servidos. Porciones son bien pequeñas por lo que fue buena idea pedir seis platos. Es la tercera vez que voy y me gusto mucho la combinación de sabores que experimenté. El menú es muy creativo y los ingredientes muy frescos. De seguro regresaré aunque por los precios no será con frecuencia.
Awesome! Everything was fantastic.
Every dish was delicious and unique. Our waitress did an excellent job explaining the process and what was in each dish. Having dinner here was a special treat!
The food was amazing! I love tasting menus so I’ve been to quite a few but nothing like the burst of flavors I tasted at Cocina abierta. The prices aren’t on the menu so we were ready for a pricey tab but it was incredibly underpriced. The service was exceptional and we are already planning on coming back next trip.
Had a fun time with the food and the experience overall.
My daughters and I visited the restaurant recently. The food and service were amazing. We were not disappointed!
Lovely, great food. Amazing
Great dining experience (testing menu was both, exciting and approachable)!
Amazing food, outstanding service! One of our best meals in Puerto Rico.
LOVE this place every time. The service and food standards are always there. A MUST.
Fantastic restaurant for a nice dinner date. I had been before for Sunday brunch and was happy to come back for dinner! It was nice to get out of the house for a date night.
Exquisite tasting meals. Although "dainty" in size, each is mouthwatering and a work of art. There was a 35 minute wait between the first and second course, service was rushed and impersonal. Food this good deserves a better presentation from the staff. There is a story for each dish you can view on the digital menu in spanish and english. Worth the read!
We loved the variety of dishes that showcased the chef's extensive culinary range. Excellent food experience.
Everything was absolutely amazing, from wine to dessert and everything in between. delicious flavors and great service!
Some dishes were really good while some were really disappointing. All in all not that great restaurant for the price
What an amazing dining experience! The food just kept getting even better with each course. We did the five acts and were beyond impressed! Our server, Inaru, was fabulous. So engaging and knowledgeable and added to the experience. Highly recommend!
The food is excellent but the restaurant’s ambience leaves something to be desired.
The food was outstanding. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
Amazing place! Went to celebrate my first anniversary and they made us feel like royalty!
Food was good! Definitely will be visiting soon. I would recommend this restaurant experience!
The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully plated! Our server, Inaru, was very attentive, was diligent about my dinner partner's allergies, and was positively delightful!
Best place for unique tapas on the island. Not your typical dishes
the wine pairing dinner is 💯. highly recommend. you can mix & match. from 3-6 courses. great value. fresh ingredients. exquisite taste.
Nice outdoor patio area. Food was good. I would go there again.
Great restaurant! Great service and fantastic food! Safe outdoor dining available. 2 blocks from San Juan Marriott.
Food was good, but not great. Some was seasoned perfectly, some things needed salt. Service and wine selection was great.
