A German rest. in adjacent to the town square in Rincon? Who would have thought! Excellent (German) beer, tasty German and Italian (and Hungarian goulash). Sometimes you gotta take a break from Rincon (no pun intended). And when in Das Alpen you feel you're someplace else (without having to buy a plane ticket).

I love walking into to Das Alpen and grabbing a seat at the bar, services is always great, and I often begin to forget I'm in the tropics. Whether I am enjoying a glass of wine, a cold beer, or a wonderful dinner, I can't help feel a little transported back to Germany. You will truly enjoy their German or... More

What a pleasant surprise..! While vacationing with my wife, looking for someplace to brunch, stumbled on this great place. Shared four different plates.... heavenly..!! Great coffee.. Clean, fresh.... even chatted with Mr. Carlos H Caro, a local coming back to town for his 57th annual high school class reunion. Good prices and excellent service by Ashley... Will be back...!!!

I am frequent reviewer for TA and other sites and this is the first negative review. I will never be back to this restaurant and would never recommend it. We waited more than one hour and never got our food. It was not even half full. The waitresses were totally indifferent. They never apologized and the food we did see... More

Definitely a must visit if you're in the mood for a traditional European dining experience. Very nice dining atmosphere. Food is filled with just the perfect amount of flavor with every meal I've tried.

considering the low level of cuisine in the entire region this place was quite good for a NYC foodie.

My husband and I have asked ourselves: "What a curious thing?! A German restaurant in Puerto Rico?!" But on our last trip to Rincon, some friends invited us to meet them at Das Alpen. What a delightful surprise! The food and the service were wonderful! I have not eaten much German food in my life, so I have no basis... More

Atmosphere isn't nice at all. Service and food was good. I wasn't impressed by the place. In my opinion it looks too deteriorated. Location is very good and everything was as ordered.

Das Alpen is a curious blend of German and Italian dishes, leaning more to the German side, I think. But they just kill a few things that no one else around here does. For example, they do a double cut brined and grilled pork chop that will have you talking to yourself. The jaegerschnitzel is another favorite. Everything on the... More
