We agree, #1 Restaurant in Luquillo

Having frequented many of the local restaurants, we found El Rincon far superior to others in the area. A two person show, wife is the cook while the husband is the greeter, server, busboy and waiter.

Very authentic and genuine. You walk through a store front to the restaurant with 6-7 tables. Husband is the waiter and wife is the cook. I had mixed seafood mofongo and my girlfriend had mixed seafood soup. The flavors were fantastic and quality of food excellent. I will go there every time I can!

The restaurant is not the easiest to spot as it is behind a store and you have to hit a buzzer / doorbell to get in, but it is definitely worth hunting down! You walk through the store to get to the restaurant. The dining area is quaint. The wife is the chef and the husband, Luis, is the waiter.... More

It might not look like much from the outside - it's actually located behind a gift shop - but if you want a true local experience of delicious food (besides the kioskos), you should definitely visit El Rincon del Sabor. Our host/server was amazing - fun and friendly and animated, he put lots of love and care into his interactions... More

The food was prepared made to order by the woman who owns the restaurant with her husband. Her husband acted as the server. The food and service was excellent. You must dine here.

Best red snapper creole ever! Luis, aka Pukey, is a tremendous host. Carmine's cooking is outstanding. It is a small restaurant, but very bit worth finding this gem in Luquillo. Memorable in every way!

If last year wasn't fabulous enough, Luis actually topped himself with THIS year's birthday celebration for Chuck (known in Luquillo as Carlos). Our entire family and friend enjoyed superb meals and special entertainment once again from "Uncle Geno." Luis, as a host, is unparalleled! He is extremely welcoming and makes everyone feel like family. He baked a special cake and... More

Best food in Puerto Rico! Luis was a fantastic host when our family visited El Rincon Del Sabor in Luquillo. We loved our delicious, authentic Puerto Rican cuisine in a warm, welcoming café. If you are near Luquillo and La Pared beach be sure to enjoy a meal and drinks at El Rincon Del Sabor.

This is a must visit every time I visit Luquillo. The only issue is it's popularity as now it's busier than ever!! Luis is still the host with the most!!! Great meal and service. Looking forward to my next trip!! Thanks you Luis.
