We are seasoned travelers and sushi lovers. We've been to Pools several times and dinner has never short of great. Poolside sushi with surfing classics on large canvas is a beach lovers paradise. But two nights ago they outdid themselves. The Wahoo Special is the best sushi roll we have ever had. In this last visit to Rincon, we had... More

Incredible food, service, and overall experience. Owner made a point to make sure everything was exceeding our expectations. Timmins might be the best server we have ever had! Make sure you try the seared catch of the day and all of the desserts. A must try when you visit!

The sushi at Pool Bar is consistently fresh, delicious and the service is always good. Definitely my favorite meal in Rincon and I try to eat there once a week!

Wow, this is one of the best places to eat in Rincon. Laid-back, friendly vibe with delicious Japanese dishes showcasing fresh local seafood. We liked it so much that we came back here the following night for another round! They project surf videos on the wall which is cool. The only thing that's a little odd is that the bar... More

We went for dinner and ordered a few things to share. It was so fresh and mind blowingly delicious! Coming from Seattle WA we are a bit picky with sushi but this place was amazing. You have to try the coconut flan! You just have to.

Pool Bar is one of our favorite spots in Rincon. After discovering it on our trip last year, it was the first and last place we had dinner on this trip. Fun atmosphere, great sushi. Service can be a little inconsistent but you're on island time so have patience and enjoy. Ask for the fresh catch and specials - they... More

The setup is a little weird as the bar and kitchen are different entities but this shouldn't really bother you once you get to know it. As there were 8 of us we ordered a lot of different items, I'd say our favourites were the daily specials (tuna) that were also the plates with best presentation. Rolls were good as... More

We have been to Pool Bar for several years. This is the first year, Oct 2016, that the food and the excessive amount of time to deliver the food to the table were horrible! It was so bad we had to ask for the last few rolls to go and even then it was another 30 minutes. Not all the... More

Since bar and food are two different entities, it was strange at the te of ordering. Service was a little bit slow and the food were average. It was a nice place with the pool and the lightning, though.

This place is hard to find, tucked in a neighborhood sort of above Tamboo. It is very fun, the sushi is outstanding, fresh, beautiful, Timmons waited on us, he was super knowledgeable and fun to talk to, is a spear fisherman in the day, so really knows fish. They have a big outdoor movie screen with surf movies playing, a... More
