Nice setting just off the Pan American highway, it's on the road down to Playa Coronado, but walking distance from the shopping centers, it has a nice ambience, good food and prices

Four of us ate there last night and had a very good experience. We were wanting more veges in our diet after a lot of meat/cheese/bread recently, and they delivered. This is not to say that this is a vegetarian-oriented place, just that they had that sort of thing on their menu if you wanted it.

The things we tried: palm heart salad (quite good, a bit more vinegar than I prefer), broccoli soup (quite good), patacones / smashed plantain (quite good), Argentinian sausage (very good, great spices), frozen mango fruta / mango smoothie (truly excellent), margarita (not so good), dessert titled something like "sinful indulgence" (very good).

I should note that there were quite a few things on the menu that were not available, including over half of the dessert options.

Our service was prompt and attentive. He filled up our water glasses at least 4 times, and most of the times that was without us asking.

I hate giving a bad review. The 'chef' seemed like a nice guy, but the restaurant was rated way, way too high in Tripadvisor and if I am not honest, someone else will waste there money. Unfortunately, none of the food we ordered was good at all. And the 'waitress' was about as attentive as a corpse; there was only one other table that had people at it and I had to get up to go to her to ask for a drink (she was standing behind the bar staring out. We are not at all picky, but this was just a bad experience - food, service and atmosphere were all pretty poor.

We ate at Don Chacho's the previous night and was far less than thrilled with the experience. This, on the other hand, was GREAT! I ordered half a chicken, my husband: a burger, my friend: the jumbo shrimp. We also ordered a huge side or grilled veggies. Everything was hot and tasty! Add to that our bottle of wine, and we really enjoyed our dinner. Attentive staff, timely service, and delicious food. Absolutely the best meal we ate in Coronado.

Consistently good food, nice atmosphere and a convenient location. Rincon also is very supportive of the local community.
