Fodor's Review

Housed in a beautifully restored criollo-style house, Rincón Argentina is one of the city's most popular restaurants. Completely unpretentious, this is the kind of steak house you find all over South America. The specialty of the house is parrilladas, meaning just about anything that comes off the grill. Don't pass up the skirt steak, served here with lip-smacking chimichurri, or the mofongo prepared seven different ways. On cool evenings, take a table on the terrace. Otherwise, wander through the maze of dining rooms until you find a table you like.

Replaced with new restaurant

Rincon Argentina closed months ago. We were in Ponce for Carnival this February. Staff of the former restaurant have opened La Esquina del Sur right next door to the old location. Address: Calle Isabel #42, at Calle Salud. Excellent food and service, despite the noise from the wonderful parade going on right outside the open windows.

Hidden treasure

Only a few blocks from the main plaza, restaurant lived up to our expectations. Extensive menu, excellent service, wonderful food and good atmosphere. Argentine Grill Platter is a must and seafood linguini was excellent also.
