Great location, good music. Drinks and food were fine. Service was slow, even with a place almost empty. The waiter forgot our drink order. When I re-ordered it, the other waiter rushed it.

The food is very tasty and reasonably priced. The scallops are to die for. They are located right around the bars and open until 12am.

Made a pit stop here during an Old San Juan family outing with the grandkids. Great location and friendly casual ambiance. We had mostly appetizers to share (carne frita, alcapurrias, and langostinos) and food was very good as was the service.

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner for 50 people at Ostra Cosa last weekend and could not rave enough about this incredible restaurant in Old San Juan. Alberto, Katia, and the rest of the team were unbelievably accommodating, actually closing down the restaurant for us...More

Ostra Cosa has a great location. It's outside and a great place to people watch. We drinks first and then went back later for a snack of calamari. It was very good. The only thing I didnt like was that the drinks were very weak...More
