Compostela's wine selection is one of the best in the island, their tapas menu is perfect pairing with their wine menu. Excellent service and knowledgeable sommelier will make this an unique experience.

Food is very good, but prices are extremely expensive. The place is small and does not look like an upscale restaurant, but like a place to have a chat with your friends while having a beer.

Dined at Compostela numerous times and this remains, to me, the top one or two of the finest restaurants in Puerto Rico and surely one of the top 10 in the entire Caribbean, yes, topping even those St. Barts haunts. We started with Billecart-Salmon Rose and the octopus carpaccio (theirs is a somewhat thick, baby-carrot width tentacles with EVOO, sun... More

Bodegas Compostela is very intimate and the food is phenomenal. They had us at octopus- truffle oil pasta. It's not the cheapest meal we had while we visited, but it was great. Service was awesome, they have a great selection of wine and if you like looking at paintings-- they have some great ones.

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.

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
