As a local we have been dining here for more than 3 decades. Simply put this is one of the top restaurants in Puerto Rico. Maximiliano (in the dining room)and Jose (in the kitchen), Rey ( not related) make a great team to deliver a great dining experience. The restaurant was closed for renovations several years ago and was changed... More

Mine day our driver Jimmy from Bracero Limo said, " John...have you been to Botega Compostela? " That one question changed the pattern of our lives in Isla Verde. This restaurant ( hosted by it's totally warm and charming owner " Rey" ) never disappoints...everything served up is fastidious in prep, plating and essence. The wines Rey makes available for...

We had a great lunch there with typical Spanish food and wines. Great attention from the owner Maximino. A kind of a Bistro feel, informal but quality food and wine. You can also buy wine to take out there and other Spanish products. Parking is very convenient right in front and they also have valet. Really good food, the kind... More

With Compostela you can't go wrong. Consistent quality food, great wine selection, excellent service and pleasant atmosphere. Fish, seafood and light dishes are probably their most popular selections. Ask for the day's specials they are usually a good complement to the menu. If you have a sweet tooth you must try the chocolate souffle with a hazelnut custard. Compostela is... More

The decor is not great- seems like someone put expensive art and tables in a garage- but the food is great, the wine list is one of the bests in Puerto Rico and the service is excellent. Good for business or social.
