We went here on our first night in Luquillo on the advice of the hotel. You cannot tell from the outside how friendly and welcoming it is once you walk through the door. The owner is everywhere making sure each person is getting the best service and the food is satisfactory. Our drinks and dinner were excellent, the over all... More

Mother, father and son do it all here. We were impressed with the attention to detail and cleanliness of the restaurant. The lobster gumbo was incredible, perfectly seasoned in Puerto Rican style. The tres leches cake was a perfectly light and sweet cap. While mom, the boss, cooked, dad and son handled the full dining room without skipping a beat.... More

Enjoyed a very special evening at El Rincon watching the Super Bowl. The owner greeted us and brought us a farewell shot of rum; our waiter was the owner's son and the chef was his wife! I ordered lobster as did my two friends....it was fine, but I think I prefer Maine lobster!

This is a family restaurant, with a father and son working the dining area, and the wife as the cook. The 2 men were very accommodating and helpful at explaining menu items and giving us other recommendations that we requested.

Whilst we've been staying in Luquillo we've eaten at El Rincon del Sabor several times. We've been made to feel so welcome by Luis and his son Rafael and we would definitely recommend it to anyone. The Creole Shrimp is superb!

We were looking for a small authentic Puerto Rican restaurant and found this family owned and run place. Very clean, personable, delicious cuisine. We had shrimp and snapper, both in the Creole sauce (a bit sweet for our taste, but otherwise seasoning was well balanced and flavorful). Great value. Loved the rice mamposteao as well. Come enjoy!

What a diamond in a small beach town. This restaurant is worth pulling off the main highway and coming to find. Just a block from the local square El Rincon charmed us into a food delight. The chef is Mom, waiters are Dad and son. Does local get better than that? The empanada appetizers were fantastic! Gumbo can get a... More

There's a reason this place is number 2 on Trip advisor in Luquillo, Puerto Rico! First of all the service is top notch, you feel almost like you were invited over for dinner by a local family. The setting throws you off a little because the front of it is a souvenir shop during the day but don't let that... More
