This little corner restaurant is unassuming, but it was the best lunch we had in the area. The ceviche is to die for, and the fish tacos were absolutely wonderful. Everything we tried was great. Great service, and a visit from the chickens who live...across the street. :-) Lot's of places to eat in Rincon, but we went back here twice!More

La Cambija used to be legendary, the place to go for authentically prepared local seafood in Rincón. Not anymore. The food is still good, and the service is excellent but it’s just… not authentic and local. We used to come here year after year to...experience real Puerto Rican food, but this year something radically changed. Everything is in English now. The empanadillas used to be amazing, now they’re nothing special. They put sugar in the ceviche now. It’s so sweet and syrupy it made my teeth hurt. You can’t even taste the delicate fish flavor. They serve fries with the burritos (?!). They offer beyond burgers now. They also offer jackfruit, which is cool, but it’s smothered in sugary bbq sauce. Everything is overly sweetened and salted. It’s mainland, boring and blah. They still have pinchos, thankfully, but they don’t even call them pinchos, they’re skewers. They play smooth jazz and elevator music instead of salsa. So disappointed. This used to be a highlight of my visits to the area.More

My family ate here three times in December 2021. Amazingly fresh and delicious food! Dining room is simply picnic tables under an awning, so don't expect fine dining ambiance. However, the food is amazing and on par with any five start restaurant in NYC.

We went looking for fresh seafood and hit the jackpot. Ask for the catch of the day. Lowkey outdoor environment with great food.

Delicious fish burger, fish tacos, and rice/beans. Staff was very friendly. This restaurant was recommended to us by several locals and it did not disappoint. One of our favorites when in Rincon.

Nice local place! We were a bit rushed due to the curfew, but enjoyed the fresh Ahi Tacos and delicious loaded fries. We have heard from friends about the mussels and shark and can’t wait to go back and try those dishes.

The restaurant is a small, nondescript building on a small side street in Rincon. Best fresh fish I have ever had, amazing presentation as well. The Hibiscus juice (yes juice, not tea) was fabulous and the Copa Tre Chocolatie dessert was outstanding. By far the...best meal we had in Puerto Rico during the week we were there.More

My wife and I ate at La Cambija multiple times while staying in Rincon February 2021. The rum punches and mojitos were great starters. On different nights we chose beef empanadillas, grouper pinchos (skewers), churrasco, grouper filets. One night a special was fried shrimp dumplings...with kimchi aioli (my wife's choice) that she said was excellent and recommended it be added to the regular menu. The servers were all very polite and attentive. Overall the prices were reasonable and the servings (portions) were enough for two meals!More

One of the Crown Jewels of the Rincón beach area. A must go to anyone in the Rincón area, please don’t miss out on this one. Please call ahead of time and make your reservations in person. Great drinks and food, menu is varied, portions...are plentiful. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Small yet cozy. I make a point of stopping by every-time I’m in the area. I recommend it to all after a long day of beach time activities.More

This "restaurant" is nothing more than a house converted to a restaurant, with outdoor seating only, so dress very casually because it can get a tad hot and humid at times. The food is as fresh as you can get. We ordered fish tacos, fish...burger with fried plantain and lion fish empanadas. Don't be fooled by its looks, it is a great place for seafood.More
