“Great authentic Puerto Rican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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.

“Did not disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

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 will no doubt share a story or two of life in Puerto Rico. The food is authentic, freshly made, and very home style. In fact the night we were there some local fishermen delivered the days catch of lobster. For the hour we were there we felt like we hade joined Luis and his family in their kitchen.

“Best Place To Eat in P.R.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

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 visit his restraint and to see him, he made me feel like I was home. I advise anyone to drive to him. He would even open early for us to eat. This place is a special treasure. Try the chicken in sauce with rice& beans & sit back & enjoy. When leaving PR, I feel sad, that I will have to wait another year to eat like this.

“Ordinary restaurant serves up some extraordinary local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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 food. There were four of us and every meal was amazing. Just as odd as the location - there was a singer who's voice is just too full and rich to be singing in this place. I'll admit - he was a bit loud for the space, but he was amazing. We ended up buying a CD from the guy - he was just great. This was our first venture our of the resort, and after eating here we never went back. There were so many great eateries in Puerto Rico it hard to pick a favorite - but this one comes close.
