Second visit. Love this place. But it is expensive. The food and service are fantastic. Octopus appetizer is out of this world. Tuna salad delicious.

I love fresh ingredients prepared well, knowledgeble and enthusiastic staff, great wines, clean restaurants, artful presentations, and care for the small details. The Chef of cuisine recommended that I try... More

If you like halibut, Compostela is the place. No matter how it is served, freshness and taste is so delicate and tender that you forget all other exquisite entrees in the menu. Service is excellent and if you like dessert, you will love a rich chocolate souffle with a exquisite hazelnut sauce.

We are locals and enjoy fine dining during the weekends. Compostela is our favorite. First, owners Maximino and Jose, along with their experienced staff, welcome us and my two kids like family. Second, their unique wine selection is superb and since they are wine distributors the wine they sell at the restaurant just has a15% mark up. You won't get... More

Pretty upscale ambience and service so dress accordingly. We kinda stumbled upon the restaurant and wanted to come back for dinner. The food was pretty good tapas and a great variety.

Our fourth visit to this fine restaurant was confirmation of our first visit and impression....worth multiple visits! The raw tuna special was presented beautifully. My wife's langoustines was as well. The art and ambience is a perfect setting for fine food! The wine list is extensive but expensive!

This is one of the oldest fine dining venues in San Juan. I visited it once for an anniversary, probably wont go back again, unless i win the loto. Food was good, but not $200 ( no wine) good.

I had very high expectations with respect to this restaurant. It has been a classic for quite some time in San Juan. However, although the ambiance was warm, cozy and inviting, and the service was friendly and attentive, I can't say I was impressed by the food. I was expecting more flavor. Overall it was a good experience.

Place was empty and dark and boring. Food was very good but i didn't like the fact that we were almost eating alone. Wine selection good and affordable.
