This had lots of variety from fish to chicken to beef and pork. The chicken soup was good. Nice place to get a feel for what it is to be a local.

The place looks ordinary and low key but the food was nothing but extraordinary! We ordered grouper mofongo and grilled chicken, both items rated our top food experiences in Rincon.

They have a good lunch special. Good taste and excellent service. I will go back. I really like the "mofongo con pollo" and the appetizers.

Loved the tiny bar. Friendly staff. The outside looks a little dumpy, but once you get inside your forget! Our server was really helpful finding our way around and showed us a good map with suggestions for dinner.

Bolitas de mero, arroz mamposteao, churrasco, and stuffed mofongos are among the dishes that we tried. Really good, best prices in Rincón.

We usually eat here for dinner one night when we go to Rincon. They have a good menu and the prices are decent. I don't ever have drinks here because the location has no view or scenery, but it's good for a quick bite to eat :)
