Fun and close to Villa Maria Playa

This was a fun little place. Lots of people, good service, ok food, but a good vibe. Also, steps away from Villa Maria Playa.

We ate here twice in 12 hours and it wasn't even close to our hotel. Last night we had their special wings, Grilled Dorado (Mahi) plate with rice and beans and the skirt steak with veggies. It was delicious! Tourists, locals, and surfers all having a great time dancing to an awesome little Caribbean band with bongos. I didn't want... More

This spot was recommended by a friend and boy I'm glad she did. The ceviche was amazingly refreshing. Live music and great atmosphere.

Have been there 3 times before and left because they never came to take our order at the bar, the bartender was more into talking to clients than working. This time I went and there was nobody at the bar so I gave it a shot. Ask for a beer at the bar, told the guy taking care of the... More

Favored by famished surfers just up from the waves -- this is a wonderful place. Just above the beach (you can take a walk there after lunch?) - we loved the ambiance and the food. They also have a gift shop, but it actually has things well above the stupid tourist stuff.

Bartenders are always great, and this is the only place we go to eat a burger. We're transplants from TX, live in Isabela now, and make the trip to Rincon any time we want a burger. I have the jalapeno cheeseburger, and the wife has the fish sandwich. You better be hungry, or order the kiddie version. The full size... More

The most popular and consistent bar in Rincón Puerto Rico. Great service, outstanding friendly bartenders and Waitstaff. Live music on weekends, great spot to watch the surfers and sunsets. Charming shops and local artists selling fantastic art, etc. Gotta go to the Calypso!

Come for Sunset Happy Hour and Apps! The vibe is chill and they have direct access to Maria's Beach, which is a great spot to see the sun go down.

Good local spot for a casual lunch after a day on the beach. Dog friendly and the staff was so nice...even when the dog peed on the patio. Bucket of water some spray and it never happened! Pretty views, very cold beer for $2, cheap prices and options for everyone including my fellow vegetarians!

Cute little spot near the beach and close to lighthouse. Small bar area does get busy. We went during time there was only the bartender doing double duty so it did take time for her to get to us. Good drink specials.
