My son and I recently visited Rincon for a surfing vacation and while there, visiting Do Galego was on our "to do" list for sure. My son lived in Spain for two years, teaching English to Spanish students in the Northwest region of the country known as Galicia. The dining in that part of the country is excellent and we were hoping that Do Galego was going to be the same---we were not disappointed. We shared several tapas dishes and their home made sangria. It was outstanding. Our waitress just happened to be the owner, and after learning that my son lived in Galicia, introduced us to her husband, who is from Santiago, Spain. He and my son had a wonderful conversation, in Galician. If we were not in Rincon, I would swear this restaurant was in Spain. It is the real deal and a must do when visiting Rincon.

Looking for restaurants in Rincon we run into this spanish cusine. We asked for the paellas and it was great! Great service. We met the owners and the cook and owner is a true man from Galicia.

When we got to this place and we saw it from the outside I can tell you that we hesitated. It looks really tiny and quiet (too quiet) We visited on a Saturday evening. Once you walk in; it is very cozy, nice and very Spanish. The Chef is from Spain and the 2 waitresses are local. Very helpful, nice and friendly. This place is almost all Tapas with the exception of 2 big dishes. Food is REALLY good, affordable and Tapas are big enough that you will definitely get full. They have a variety of wines and sangrias. When we got there there was another couple and by the time that we left the place was full.Give it a try! You wont be disappointed.

Do Galego is an excellent tapas restaurant in Rincon, PR (probably the only authentic one) and would be so anywhere...Spain included. We have been to many tascas that specialize in tapas and don't say this lightly.

And they are consistent. The owner is from Galicia, and our favorites include the Caldo Gallego, Gambones, Chorizo in Wine Sauce, Albondigas en Salsa Espangiola, Masitas de Cerdo and Patatas Bravas. There's plenty more on the menu and the weekly blackboard.

It is small and the decor authentic; feels like you walked into a neighborhood place somewhere in spain.

Nice wine selection with reasonable prices (mosey over to the rack and pick one out) and authentic Sangria; you actually get a full jarra with the ice on the side, nice.

Buen provecho!

Cozy little restaurant (only 6 or 7 tables) with friendly staff. Croquetas de bacalao and paellas where excellent. Remember it's a Tapas menu, so don't expect dinner dishes.
