This is the dining room upstairs at the Lazy Parrot. Formerly run by Smilin' Joe and Lia, then the Saltaire folks, now in the hands of Francisco, and he acquits himself well. An interesting variety of tropical and other flavors, nicely done, and reasonably priced. The drinks were sufficient to wipe out my memory of what we ate, but both of us loved our dinners and intend to go back again. If you live or visit Rincón, check this place out. I do believe he's staying open for the summer, unlike several other local eateries, so this might be your best bet.

Your comments are so special when you refer to all the great restaurants the Lazy Parrot has housed over the years. Sometimes comparison's are hard but the Lazy Parrot has been a consistent restaurant option since 1989. Francisco's, will be open all summer and we look forward to seeing you again!

My wife, daughter and I were on vacation in Puerto Rico visiting family. We arrived at the restaurant early evening and had no problems getting seated for a table of 8.

Service here was quick and top notch. Our server understood Spanish and English, Everything we ordered from the menu was excellent and priced reasonably. My tiburon appetizer was excellent and the catch of the day of Mahi-Mahi was outstanding. I could list everything we ordered but it would take a lot of space and in the end get the same review EXCELLENT!!!!!!! This is a must go to place if you are on the western side of the Island.

The Owner/Chef came out to ask us how our meals were and made it a wonderfully personal experience. 5 stars all the way!!!!!!!!

The House Salad should not be called that but it should be renamed The Tropical Salad! Excellent!!! We first had breakfast this morning and it was was even better! Try the Frittata!

Located in the main building at the Lazy Parrot, this is a medium-higher priced menu. Specializing in local and island food this is a great stop to taste local dishes. We had mofongo con pollo or mashed garlic plantains with chicken as our main dish and tres leches or three milk cake for dessert. We also had the hite sangria which was one of the best i have ever had. Our bill was north of $50 but the food was excellent and fresh.

My husband and I have been to this restaurant twice and both times the excellent and creative spin on Caribbean cuisine has been a pleasant surprise. On my last trip I had an amazing grouper stuffed with shrimp in a cream sauce and fluffy whipped sweet potatoes. My husband remarked about the great sauce on his lamb chops.
We sat at a private table in a garden setting ( suggest reservation for that)
Service was stellar. Can't say anything negative about our experience at Francisco's.
