One of my favorite restaurants. For appetizer we had the Foie grass with a ron de barrilito reduction on top of guineito niño and crostini de mallorca ( yes it was soooooo good I learned the whole name), but we should have ordered the 4 oz portion, We just wanted more.... Then I had the 8oz beef tenderloin, pure perfection!!!... More

If you like a Great steak in a small romantic setting while in Rincon, this is the place. The meat comes from the US fresh and the cook does a masterful job of giving it flavor. The service was personal and friendly. Look no further for a steak place in the area.

High end steakhouse Hidden by a dive shop and food trucks. Clean, modern. Chef makes it when you order. Steak seafood was exceptional. The personal touches with the food made it a lovey evening.

We had an opportunity to have a business discussion at this Restaurant with a lot of great reviews and recommendations. The Caldo Gallego was good and savory, more light than traditional, but very good. The falling off expectations was the meat temperature requests and the tenderness of them. We ordered medium and medium rare rib eyes and got them over... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere upscale to eat in Rincon. I am glad we chose this establishment. We both got the filet with the goat cheese topping with a red wine reduction. This was by far the best steak I have ever had. The service was fantastic and the prices were great considering the quality of the... More

This restaurant remains a local landmark for foodies. We last visited three years ago in a different location, and are pleased to see that quality has been maintained. We had a party of six for our current visit, and most were more than content with their offerings. Be advised that this place provides up-scale dining with appropriate pricing, but if... More

This is a favorite of ours when in Rincon. The meats are outstanding. Chicken was so moist and tender that my traveling companion said it was the best he had ever eaten! Steaks were great but a bit disappointed that there was no strip steak because they ran out. In a steak restaurant you run out of steak? Rice and... More

The quality of the steaks and the service as well as everything else we tried in the menu was excellent. I truly recommend this place if you want to spend on some nice steaks and wine.
