Great and authentic food

My wife and I had mofongo - mine was the steak, hers the lobster, and my daughter had the mamposteao. We all loved the food, and the down-scale decor and locals eating there made us feel like we were enjoying an 'authentic' PR experience. And the price was good too. Highly recommend it.

We came here in January, 2015, and my review was "eh... just ok". We came back to Rincon this month (January, 2016) and came here twice. The food was awesome both times and the drinks were perfect. They are never very busy, so, the service is attentive and helpful. The steak Mofongo was SO good, and generally, everything we ordered... More

The restaurant was very clean, for being outside. Pablito was very friendly and helpful. The Seafood Soup was delicious! The Shrimp and Rice a definite must! It was also, walking distance from Villa Cofresi (which is also on my Must list).When you're in the neighborhood, passing by, make sure you stop in. You will definitely enjoy it!

the food was good... quality and freshness of the seafood was evident... not a fancy place at all, with plastic chairs and cheap tables. it's the meal u come for, not the ambiance.

Although the food is better than average, the environment causes my Average rating. I love cats, but there are a few feral types that hang around and since this restaurant has open sides, they wander into the restaurant easily enough.

This restaurant is a hidden jewel. It is very clean, the wait staff is very efficient and friendly. The food cannot be praised enough. It is so fresh and delicious. In the three days that we stayed in Rincon we ate there all three days. It is that good and my mouth is watering thinking about it.

Very traditional dishes - the fish stew was delicious, especially with the homemade hot sauce added!

It is one of the most visited restaurants in Rincon, PR. Good food good prices. No A/C except on a private room for private events. The service is average. Close to beaches.

Real good Puerto Rican food. Not over priced. Great family place, close to the center of Rincon. Have been many times and have never had any bad food. This restaurant is highly recommended.
