I stopped here for a quick snack; sat the counter and ordered a 'tortilla de patatas'. As I was waiting for my order, out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a roach. I turned my head and yes, I was pretty sure it was a roach, but hoped I was mistaken and that maybe it was... More

I had a very nice ceviche and sopa de res (short rib soup) and both tasted authentically latin-american. I sat at the bar and the wait staff were very friendly. At the end of the meal the owner comped a dessert he called empanada and it really was delicious: a fried plantain cake filled with cream of rice. I was... More

Nice place on a very hot day in DC. Recommend the Nachos and burritos. They also served Spanish food which look good but we did not order. When we visited, we were the only two customers for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. We had great service and good food.

My favorite! True Spanish, and Mexican food! Try the homemade sangria. The food was fresh and delicious. Portions were large and I ate every bit of it. Very small and easy to miss but don't!!!!

We went to El Rincon, a long time business in Adams Morgan - I believe about 35 years, for dinner and drinks. The place was only half full but the atmosphere very authentic. Somewhere south. The Appetizers were great, especial the Spanish Chorizo, and the entrees were ok. Large and filling, very tradition. Enjoy bottle beer for drinks. The waitress... More

No matter what our destination is in Washington, DC, dinner is always at El Rincón Español. The service is professional and friendly and their paella is even better than what we have found in Madrid.
