All of the positive things people have written about this restaurant are 100% correct. Food, service, beverages and hospitality were top-notch. How great would life be if every business person treated his customers like Luis does? A couple of observations based on other reviews: We did not have any trouble finding the restaurant, and even though there is a gift... More

We dined at El Rincon del Sabor last Saturday night, for the first time, based on the tripadvisor's reviews. We arrived early (5:30) as there was a festival going on and we thought it might be packed. We were the first ones there and got instant attention from Luis and his son, Jose. As we scanned the menu, Luis brought... More

We had such a wonderful dinner at the delightful El Rincon Del Sabor during our stay in Luquillo. The owner, Luis, greeted us and in about 2 minutes, we felt as if we were eating in an old friend’s kitchen. It didn’t take long for him and my husband to form a man-bond over shots of Luis’ bootleg rum. This... More

As stated by other reviews, you enter through a gift shop w/o AC, but in the back is a nice eating area. The owner was very kind and gave us suggestions, saying his wife (the cook) makes amazing creole sauce, which was very true. The owner brought us out two complimentary shots of Puerto Rican moonshine a piece, which was... More

You can't help but love a place like this. The owner is the heart of the establishment, his wife is the cook and his son busses tables. They were slammed the night we ate and they had two or three groups waiting where they could find room until a table opened. A gentleman who appeared to be a friend came... More

A little lacking in atmosphere, but totally made up for by good food and a delightful host. Try the Puerto Rican fare - Mofongo or the native style rice.

We had a great dinner here. My husband had the red snapper with shrimp and I had steak. Food was great and the hospitality even better. Price was very reasonable. Our children, ages 7 and 8 enjoyed every bite of their meals as well.

We found El Rincon on Trip Advisor after a dissapointing experience at a restaurant in Fajardo. The owner was extremely hospitable and gave good recommendations. Most of us got a dish with his wife's creole sauce which was excellent. While the food is great, the reason to go to this restaurant is for all the extra experiences that add value... More

We went to dinner tonight and had one of the most amazing meals of my life! Luis and his family really out did themselves. From the service ( we felt like family) to the food. We started with fresh, crisp salads. I had the mofongo with shrimp. My boyfriend ordered the creole octopus. His parents meals were the shrimp salad... More

We were lucky enough to be driving by just as Luis was opening up. We asked if they were serving lunch and he said he'd ask the chef...who as it turns out was his wife Carmen. Happily, she said yes and we enjoyed a fabulous red snapper and shrimp with Creole sauce at Luis' suggestion, accompanied by rice and beans... More
