Highly rated and lives up to its reviews. Run by a couple and their son this is a gem of a restaurant and is a true local experience. The red snapper with creole sauce was amazing. The owner ended up giving my girlfriend a coquí necklace as it was her birthday! Would go back in a heartbeat.

Delicious red snapper in creole sauce, although the sauce was a thick tomato and not what I would call Creole. Owner waited on us and was warm and friendly. We would go back gladly.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at El Rincon Del Sabor! Our evening began with a warm, personal greeting from Luis (the owner) and continued with a viewing of a DVD that provided an overview of Peurto Rico as we waited on our food that was being prepared by Luis's wife. Once our food arrived, we were amazed... More

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

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
