I had a special low carb request which they were able to accomodate. They make Celery Root Mofongo! I am impressed. Drinks are great. The best spot is the outside seating
Great, attentive & friendly service throughout our outdoor dinner and after-dinner drinks at the bar. The cocktails & food were delicious; we ordered bourbon & gin based drinks, stuffed calamari, mofongo & ceviche. Or dessert was a nice glass of wine from their program and a spiked coffee at the bar.
Nice place to go every other week! Good food, excellent service, reasonably priced.
Thank you for the wonderful meal and service!!! Loved the Pineapple & purple corn glazed duck and Tuna & watermelon ceviche!!!
Great service and super friendly waiters ready to serve you. The food was also real good . It is a very casual place with great food and very reasonable in terms of pricing
The music to loud, we ask for straw for mix the drinks, the waiters said they don’t have for reduction in the inventory. The soup was cold, they don’t have coconut water for the drinks.
Excellent service, fabulous food (you must try the plantain carpaccio with tuna tatake - an incredible combination of sweet and savory) and a tremendous value.
The food was wonderful with so many tasty and unique flavors! Kudos to the chef!
We went to Cocina Abierta after finding it in OpenTable. Our favorite restaurant in San Juan!! Great quality ingredients, very original cuisine, outstanding service - they accommodated our vegetarian requests and adapted some dishes to replace animal ingredients. The results were delicious!! And they still brought me some of these ingredients on the side since I do eat meat. Very strongly recommend this place over other more expensive default options in Condado and broader San Juan. .
Delicious dinner on our last night in San Juan! We wanted something a little special and definitely got it with Cocina Abierta. Highly recommend the plantain carpaccio. Foodie-approved menu at an extremely reasonable price.
Great food! Really nice patio seating and delicious fresh cuisine. A must when in PR!
Fantástica comida en familia. Repetiremos.
We went for my birthday. They made it very special for us. Jorge (our waiter) made us feel particularly welcomed. His recommendations were fantastic. The food was exceptional. We are only here for four days but we are going back again before we leave (that is how exceptional this place is). Highly recommended. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
Different style and a well mix of flavor.
Wonderful experience, great food! We were on vacation and since we liked it so much we returned on our last evening. Highly recommend.
Honestly, one of the best meals I’ve had in a LONG time. Claudia was the loveliest and great at her job. I want to make another trip to Puerto Rico just so i can go back. A must stop!
Everything about this place was amazing. Highly recommend!!!
horrible seating! chairs were from some place like k-mart; so uncomfortable you could not enjoy your meal.
Excellent environment. Tasty Food.
¡Espectacular! ¡Para volver!
The mofungo of celery root with beef cheeks was AMAZING...the octopus starter was chewy😬..service lovely...dining el fresco while not a pretty view was much quieter than inside.
Great food! The plantain carpaccio is delicious! The service was outstanding!
Great find in San Juan. Delicious food and lovely service. It was so nice to sit outside. Very creative menus and reasonable prices. So glad we went!
Amazing food. Party of 3, 2 adults and 1 10 year old. If there is one item on the menu you MUST try it is the Sweet Plantain Tuna Carpaccio (I think that was the name). It is AMAZING. I am a bit of a foodie and anytime we travel, I do online research and I always check EATER. This restaurant came up multiple times. The prices are very reasonable for the size of the dishes. Very cool atmosphere. Our table was right next to the kitchen, which i do not normally like, but in this instance it wasn't too loud or distracting. The featured drinks from the bar was fantastic. My son ordered the cheese burger. The only small feedback is that the fries with the burger were extremely soggy and soaked in grease. However, the burger was EXCELLENT.
Mada was a great server, very attentive with great suggestions for food and drinks. It was very lively and when a group of six was seated right next to us, noisy. But the food was innovative, delicious, and good portions without going overboard.
The food was delicious with a wonderful mixture of ingredients, the service was fanatastic.
Good food and ambience. Service was fast and desserts and appetizer were awesome. Good coffee as well
I loved the service. I ordered the beef tenderloin and it was really good. My boyfriend ordered the catch of the day which was horrible cooked. He couldn’t eat it but he didn’t tell the management. I bet they would’ve been able to fix it.
My favorite restaurant from my trip to Puerto Rico. Amazing craft cocktails and outstanding dinner. Can’t be beat!!
Great meal and a great staff. Really enjoyed everything. We had a VERY loud party behind us, but still enjoyed the evening.
My girlfriend and I loved it. Carlos the bartender gave us amazing cocktails, the food was one of the best full course meals I've had in a long while. Me and my girlfriend just chilled at the bar and cracked a few jokes with the staff that was very attentive and fun. Been talking about my experience to my co-workers who are foodies as well. Would love to come again and try the whole menu. Cheesecake and the mignon were to die for.
Service was great! Overall dining experience was excellent! If your picking spots to eat on your vacation, this should be a stop on your list! This is not a fast dining experience. It is smaller plates so people will order more items on the menu and it will take an evening out of dining. If your a foodie you will love it! Only negative was that our table was not ready for us when we arrived because of the before mentioned eating experience. Yet don’t worry they have a bar where you can sit and wait and have some lovely cocktails or get a glass of wine from their nice wine list! We will go back!!!
Wonderful service. Personable and professional
Food and service was amazing will definitely recommend Cocina Abierta to friends
Cocina Abierta is a must-do in Puerto Rico! We loved every dish we had!
Chose Cocina Abierta on our first night in San Juan. Great choice. Such an interesting and delightful menu, lovely presentation, and - above all - delicious. Highly recommended.
This is my favorite restaurant locally. But my issue lately is that you leave the restaurant smelling like food. It didn’t happen before, but my last 4 visits I, quite honestly, need to go home and shower. So I can’t make plans for afterwards if my choice to have dinner is Cocina Abierta.
Been coming to Puerto Rico for 40 years. This is by far the best overall dining experience ever.
Our compliments to the chef, the servers, and the owners. If you only dine out once, do it here.
It was my birthday and the food was quite frankly tasteless and not good. I was very sorry becasuse the place and ambiance was very good.
