We read the reviews for this place, so we decided to try. Very good food. The shrimp mofongo was excellent as well as the snapper. The sangria was fantastic as well! Very warm reception from the owner. Excellent service!

When our family of eight entered El Rincon we did not imagine the treat that lied ahead. Our experience began with a warm smile and a heartfelt "Bienvenidos extended by Luis (the restaurant owner). The food was indescribable. Our collective meal included appetizing chicken wings, fish/beef dumplings, chicken mofongo grilled chuletas, shrimp creole, arroz y gondolas and more. It was... More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it. The owner is wonderful and very friendly. We all had something different and it was delicious. I had the red snapper in creole sauce and highly recommend it. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is friendly. The prices seemed in line with other restaurants of its type... More

Nestled in a residential neighborhood this restaurant is worth the search. The owner is welcoming and makes you feel at ease the moment you walk in. We ordered three seafood dishes and his wife (the chef) created a vegetarian dish for one person in our party. The creole sauce on 3 of the dishes was flavorful and complemented the meals... More

The food was amazing! Fried chicken wings, shrimp cocktail, lobster mofongo, porterhouse steak, mahi mahi....delicious. But, the most enjoyable part of the evening was meeting and speaking with the owner. He is just lovely and has so much knowledge about Puerto Rico. It was a wonderful dinner...very authentic...my husband said best rice and beans he has ever had....such a nice... More

We shared an order of red snapper in creole sauce and octopus in creole sauce. The octopus dish was one of the best things I have ever eaten in my entire life. Seriously. It was that good! The flan was also wonderful. The owner/waiter was gregarious, fun, and friendly.

When I entered, I was greeted in a very friendly way by the excellent, small waiting staff. The food looked and smelled delicious. Great value.

This was the first meal we ate in Puerto Rico on our visit here. I was recommended here by a co-worker of mine who is originally from Puerto Rico and he recommended the Mofongo de Camerones con Arroz y Gandules (Shrimp Mofongo with Rice and Beans). My first taste of Puerto Rican food was incredible! The mofongo is shaped into... More

This place is off the beaten path in a residential area and you actually have to buzz in to get in. Once in, you are treated to Luis the owner. Very friendly, very Puerto Rican and very funny, who also took a quick pic with us after the meal. He was helpful with every dish, plus he wanted to know... More

The most friendly service of our Puerto Rico visit when the gregarious owner welcomes you and maintains conversation with every table. We were buzzed into the closed shop with a small clean dining area containing about 8 tables. We had skirt stake, red snapper, mahi-mahi in garlic sauce and shrimp mufungo. I have tried mufungo all over the island and... More
