Excellent Mofongo!

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

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.

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.

We try all the up-scale and novel restaurants on our visits to Rincon, and they are fine. However, this is just the place when you want a down-to-earth, no-frills, wholesome, local meal. Their fish dishes are inexpensive and available in a variety of options. It's no big deal, but everything we have sampled was tasty and the place is clean... More

We enjoyed this place. It wasn't amazing, but it was a solid choice for Puerto Rican food. The service was fast and pleasant.

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.

Rincon Tropical is a conveniently located small, friendly restaurant where you can get a more than decent home-style Puerto Rican meal. We had the carne frita to start, crunchy pieces of deep-fried pork to dip in various sauces. Then I had the fileta de chillo criolla; the snapper was good, and the sauce may have lacked subtlety but it added... More
