Fodor's Expert Review Estela

$$$ Rincon Caribbean Fodor's Choice

On weekends, patrons come from as far as San Juan to dine at this cozy restaurant. Operated by husband-and-wife team Juan and Nerylu, it's found a niche in Rincón offering dishes made using locally sourced ingredients—you may even see a fisherman pull up with a giant yellowfin tuna. The regularly changing menu by Chef Abel Mendoza might feature dishes such as queen-snapper sashimi with papaya and tiger's milk (the liquid used to cure ceviche), braised short ribs over root-vegetable mash, or duck à l'orange with roasted squash. You can't go wrong with any of the daily specials. The dining room can get loud, so ask to be seated outside on the terrace.
