We had dinner at Das Alpen with our two teen girls and German exchange student. We thought the food was great and reasonably priced. There was a good beer selection (we are admittedly not beer connoisseurs). We tried the Weiner Schnitzel, Gulash, and pasta and all was great. The atmosphere was nice as were the staff. We recommend it.

My husband doesn't eat meat, so were ordered the pasta, which was good but not great and of moderate size. We each had the caprese salad, which was a special, only to be presented with the house salad which came with the pasta. It would have been good to have been told that. We each had soup, and I had...

We ate there while on spring break with out two boys and was very pleased with the atmosphere, service and food quality. The German good was very authentic and very well prepared. We'll go back when we are in Rincon next time!

Convenient location, Das Alpen Café offers a respite from the usual criollo fare so common in Puerto Rico. As advertised, they offer German and Northern Italian food. We found the menu to be loaded with some great offerings. We started with the house soup - potato and leek and it was excellent. We all loved the Jaeger Schnitzel (done in... More

Das Alpen Cafe! Sounds and looks pretty authentic with Spaten Brau umbrellas etc - its OK but nothing special or even that authentic, a rather uninterested waitress ( we were the first and only customers), loud French {?) music; oil and balsamic dip for the bread (very southern? Italian), lukewarm red cabbage and somewhat soggy Wiener Schnitzel. As we said,... More

I always visit on a Sunday or a Thursday ~ never on a busy Friday or... More

Rincón is better known for big waves, deeply tanned surfers, and pizza joints than it is for fine dining and Das Alpen Café will not change that image. At the Southwest end of the plaza in heart of downtown Rincón, the restaurant is unassuming and having arrived on Three Kings Day (Puerto Rico’s second Christmas) we were not sure it... More

My friends and I stopped in for dinner at this beautiful café, located on a side street behind the main Rincon town square. The appetizers, food and drinks were excellent in quality, although for me, the portion sizes were a little small for the matching prices. The service there was also fast and friendly, so I would, indeed return on... More
