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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
