Excellent Mofongo!

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

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

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

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. The grouper mofongo comes with a creole sauce and it was so far the best mofongo I've had across the island. My friend's said his grilled chicken was the best... More
