“Fresh & delicious with superfriendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Wow, I totally disagree about the service, but it could have been the timing. The food was spectacularly fresh and delicious, and the service was flawless. As Maggers noted, the outdoor setting, staggeringly fresh fish, and well-trained wait staff made this an exceptional meal all around. We've been coming to Rincon for 4 years now, and this is the best meal yet. We had fish tacos (one order of mero/grouper and one of dorado/mahi) and tostones (fresh & hot, tender, home-made, not the cheap icky premade frozen ones), accompanied by a refreshing sandia-parcha/watermelon-passionfruit mojito.

“Great food at a good price but service could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Had a great dinner here with my family, but service was a bit slow. Had some of the fish on the stick, with the grouper being some of the best I have ever had. The burritos and tacos were all good, but there was some disappointment on the size of them. The prices are very fair. Only complaint is with the service. While it was slightly busy, it seemed like it took way too long for our order. Overall, it took almost an hour from the time we placed the order until we received it. Then they took away our plates but wouldn't give us our check in a timely manner. So while the food was really good and at a fair price, the service was a disappointment.

“Food was fairly good but the service was awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This place is quite well known in Rincon but it may be resting on its reputation a bit too much. The food was good but not spectacular and the bar staff were unhelpful, verging on rude. I wouldn't go back. Try Lucky 13 instead, much better food and staff.

“Best meal of the week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

...and we had some great ones! But La Cambija won thanks to the charming outdoor setting, amazing fresh fish and top notch friendly service. The full staff worked as a team to serve and make their customers feel welcome. Our Rincon favorite!

“Delicious fish tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Stopped by here after a morning of scuba diving with the excellent Rincon Diving and Snorkeling company!

But, on to the meal - the food at La Cambija was amazing! One of the best meals we had in Puerto Rico! The fish was very fresh and the service was great! The service was so fast and the wait staff was very helpful. The food really was delicious though - I hadn't been planning to stop for lunch and was very very glad that we did!

The food was a great value for such fresh fish, and the atmosphere is a great outdoor beach vibe type of place, very enjoyable!
