Went for dinner our first night in Rincon, so we decided to go to the beach the next day and have lunch there again.
Food is overpriced for entrees, sandwiches and wraps are a good price. Mixed drinks were pricey as well, but beer was fair.
As August is the off season, we never saw it get busy or loud. Good to go to if you're on the beach, not necessarily worth making the trip just to the restaurant.

We were told it was a family friendly hotel however we were rudely awakened (literally) to the fact that it was not at all. Every night, all night, there was very loud live music playing outside right below our room, including drums, trumpets and whistles. It would have been hilarious if we weren't traveling with small children and Grandma. We had specifically asked when booking if it was a family hotel and were told that it was perfect for families, only to find out that that we couldn't even go near near the water because of the extremely dangerous riptide that had in fact swept away a little girl shortly before our visit. Completely defeated the fact that we booked a beachside hotel when we couldn't enjoy the beach at all. We were terrified to let the kids near the water at all. We never got a good nights sleep either. When we brought it up to the manager, he was heartless and told us that he would not refund our fees for the remaining nights if we chose to leave and go elsewhere, despite the fact that he had completely mislead us when booking.

Not bad, a little more than what I like to pay for food. Nice location, right on Sandy beach. Would go back for a few drinks. Probably not to eat though.

Has the unique experience of having dinner along with my family at this establishment. Open bar/restaurant right on the ocean which provides a decent menus of appetizers and sandwiches/wraps as ell as some main dishes. Prices were comparable to what you would expect for this type of establishment catering to the tourist in Rincon. Appettizers and wraps were ok but nothing to write home about. Service was pretty quick and yes the BEER was cold as it is everywhere on the island. Foe me I feel the place really beats all others in Ricon due to accessibility to the beach and it's very nice to catch a quick swim and keep coming back in to catch up on another cold drink. Also you can bypass the restaurant and just BYO and use the beach. I would definitely return.
