Do not judge the restaurant by its cover. The inside is beautiful and the owners are super friendly and give superb customer service! The creole sauce is to die for!! My favorite dish is the red snapper with creole sauce. It's delicious and a large portion of food.

Owner and restaurant lived up to their reviews. Our first dinner in Luquillo. We received excellent advice on places to see. Only regret is that we didn't make it back to get the grilled lobster!

Kudos to Luis for his customer service. Wish we would have taken a picture with him. He makes you feel so comfortable. Must eat here. His wife is the cook and he is the host. What a perfect combination. The food is good and so is the atmosphere. The restaurant is in the middle of a neighborhood. He buzzes you... More

My wife and I took our five kids to this restaurant tonight. It is in a shady neighborhood, and we were concerned driving up. Once we got inside, however, everything changed. We had an awesome time and unbelievable food. The owner took excellent care of us all night, and even finished the meal up with free rum shots. We had... More

Luis, the owner, greeted us and introduced himself as we sat down at our table. He was very friendly and helpful. The food was pretty tasty (typical Puerto Rican food). My girlfriend loved their beans. Luis must have enjoyed our company because he gave us shots of rum on the house! I'd happily come back if I were to visit... More

My wife and I had two appetizers, entrees of mixed seafood gumbo and mixed seafood in garlic sauce. We also had fruit and cheese for desserts. All the food we had was tasty and properly prepared. And to our delight, even though we weren't the only patrons, Luis took time to explain each dish, and we were lucky enough to... More

We chose this restaurant and it was an excellent choice. My fiance had the shrimp mofongo and I had the lobster mofongo. The hospitality from Luis (owner) and Carmin(Luis wife) was out of this world. The pina coladas were very good, we enjoy our dinner and learn a little more about Luquillo. If you visit Luquillo, visit El rincon del... More

We chose this restaurant based on trip advisor. Normally that works well, this time it turned out badly, the location was awkward , a dark street with difficult parking. The building entry by Doorbell passing thru a gift shop was awkward. All this would not have mattered if the food Was good. Unfortunately it was not. Porterhouse. And churrasco were... More

We were there several times. It's a true family affair: Luis (owner) and Carmen (the chef and wife) and son Raphael make this place a very unique and special local restaurant.
