“Excellent sushi and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Very laid back, casual atmosphere around a pool. Loved the surf movies playing on the big screen in the background! We came twice because the sushi was so delicious and the service was very friendly and not slow. I would definitely come back if we visit beautiful Rincon again.

“Not a good experience...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Too many things in the same place. First, oir group sat beside the pool but a group of kids were jumping into it and we all got wet. When we asked the waitress to at least tell the kids not to do it the friendly answer was: "thats wht the pool is for". Next, the waitress cleared out that if we wanted drinks we had to go to the bar and ask for them because there were different tickets. Third, because it was "low season" the menu had only sushi and fish related dishes...not even one different plate. At the end, our party of 5 decide to go to another place.I know that Rincón is a very laid back place but...

“Trendy and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

After 2 weeks of traditional Puerto Rican food, we were feeling adventurous, and decided to try Pool Bar Sushi. Their credit card machine was down, so we didn't order as much as we wanted. The ambiance was very trendy and laid back -- tables around an LED-lit swimming pool, tiki-bar and surf videos playing on a large screen. We ordered two rolls and they were both great. The shoft-shell crab was my favorite. The house salad with crispy noodles on top looked amazing, but they had just served the last one, so I didn't get to try it. Be sure to try the Banana fritters for desert with vanilla ice cream.

“Sushi Great! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

The sushi is really something to write home about. All the apps we ordered and roll were awesome. We had a big party of 12! One thing we didn't care for was the bar and good are separate so you have to keep getting up and getting your own drinks and have 2 tabs. Not the end of the world but a little bit of a pita.

Dinner was great. The rolls were fresh, beautiful and yummy. Nicole at the bar mixes so nice, potent portables. And my daughter will be having a play date with our waitress' daughter. Fun, friendly atmosphere. My 7 year old loved swimming in the dark!!
