As described by other patrons, the food was very good. This was our first experience with local cuisine and my first taste of shrimp mofongo. We were the first customers for lunch. Luis was welcoming and happy to offer tips for local sights. My entire family enjoyed the meal very much. The experience was a very nice introduction to the... More

Went to this place based on tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Excellent home cooked food in simple atmosphere. Luis was genuinely kind and took care of our every need. My wife is from Puerto Rico and the food here is the real thing. Everyone loved their meal.

I use Trip Advisor all the time for restaurant reviews. The reviews of El Rincon did not steer us wrong. It is a lovely family run place off the beaten path in Luquillo. Luis and his family are ready to serve you, and better...treat you like family. Gracious handshakes and pats on the back await you at El Rincon. Luis... More

I am from Boston and ended up in this little secret place to eat. Luis the owner is the sweetest man in the world, he gave us a celebration shot of local "moonshine" as they call it and began to serve us the best cooked meal on the island. I have gone back to P.R three times& make sure I... More

We tried this restaurant based on some positive reviews we read here. When we asked the concierge at the hotel for directions, he simply wrinkled his nose and offered to make a reservation elsewhere - so we headed out on our own. Nestled in the back of a touristy knick·knack shop, this very ordinary restaurant serves up some extraordinary local... More

We ventured out one night to have dinner at El Rincon Del Sabor and are so glad we did. The owner Luis and his wife were closing up because they were leaving for vacation the next morning, but he and his wife were kind enough to cook for us anyway. The red snapper with creole sauce was delicious. My wife... More

What a little gem. All the locals said we had to eat here and I am so glad we did. The mofongo was the most delicious on the island and I are a lot of it while I was there! Stop on by for sure.

My fiance and I heard a lot about this restaurant, and so we went for a walk one night from our hotel, the Luquillo Sunrise Inn, to look for it. We never found it. But a couple nights later we tried again, and did find it this time. The front is a small gift shop, which you need to be... More
