The food here was simply amazing. The grouper Mofongo and fried cheese were cooked to perfection. The portion, upon arrival, appeared normal size. However, neither of us could finish our meal. I had shrimp Mofongo my husband ordered grouper Mofongo. We had a side of mamposteao rice (or something like that) it was so tasty. The service was painfully slow... More

While this little place may be off the beaten path, don't skip it if you get anywhere near here! We ordered the appetizer combo (I highly recommend as they have the BEST mayo/ketchup sauce on the island,) and the fried shrimp. Neither my husband nor I speak spanish well and were able to order our food without a problem and... More

We have been going here for years, we have never had anything but a great meal here. The food is totally awesome, try the churasco. Best on the island, so is the mofungo. It is all good, always our first stop when we fly in. Will be there in four weeks.

The food was okay, but a bit pricey for the lack of taste. Service was good, the woman who served us was very nice. You can get better food for almost the same price at La Cambija.

I wanted to eat at a local place and decided to try Rincón Tropical based on the reviews. It was a good choice. The service was quick and friendly and the food came in large portions. Great value for the servings. We ordered the grilled skirt steak, arañitas, caesar salad with chicken and the chicken alfredo. The restaurant was "open... More

We stopped here during our roadtrip on our drive back to San Juan; we ordered lunch to-go and could not have been happier with our choice, we got a lot for our money. Their food was just right, we ordered an assortment of mofongo, rice and beans, sweet plantains, guava dessert, and we sat outside, just next to the bar,... More

Quick service, great shrimp and rice, amazing sweet plantains, uneven skirt steak (one time tender and tasty, one time tough and tasteless).

Good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. Pumpkin cheesecake to rival Cheesecake Factory ! Had the mofongo with broth , the octopus was tender and delicious . The Piña colada was homemade (not from a machine). The churrasco was tender and cooked as requested.

The place where we stayed in Rincon recommended this place. It is back in a parking lot from the main drag, Route 115. But, that meant it had plenty of parking. It was a bit run down, but, in some ways that added to its charm. The waitress spoke English as well as any American and she was very attentive.... More
