We dined at Ostra for the first time and were delighted by the food and service. The grilled octopus was the most tender and flavorful I have had outside of Italy. For our entrees we had lobster, paella and a pasta (I forget which) and...More

Ostra is one of the finest restaurants in Boston with outstanding food and attentive staff. Their seafood is among the best in the city. They also have excellent cocktails and a very nice wine list. Highly recommended!
My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Ostra. We had delicious grilled Spanish Octopus as a starter. For entrees, the sea bream and grilled red snapper are to die for! Excellent ambience, great service and wonderful presentation. Will come back again! 😊

Went there for dinner after a long day of difficult business travel. Just a super experience. The food was out of this world. I had the salmon for entree and easily the best I've ever had. You can't go wrong with ANY of the desserts....More

Love the relaxed yet refined nature of Ostra’s piano lounge. Live music nightly is excellent. The food and service cannot be beat. Salt Crust Bronzino is not to be missed. Octopus appetizer along with all crudos are excellent. Salmon typically is one of my favorite...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
