We have run hot and cold on Rincon over the past few years. We've had some dreadful evenings where the food hasn't been great and the service has been appalling...we've also had some amazing meals with delightful service. After too many of the former, we'd avoided it for a couple of years but gave it another go in the past month. While service can still be a little too relaxed (tables not cleaned off, long waits for placing orders and delivering food) the quality of the food has brought us back a few times and I am quite warming to the place. We won't go if it looks busy, but one can get a truly excellent meal at a very good price, so it's worth a little patience.
On a recent visit, I had the menu del dia which is a great value. Something that impressed me was that the salad that came with the menu was not just a bit of lettuce and veg tossed on a plate, but a beautifully presented dish that appealed to both my taste buds and my eyes. Main courses were not large, but were hot and tasty. I really appreciate that all of the meals were served with nicely cooked vegetables, something that is rare in Spain. I am a particular fan of the salmon which I highly recommend. My daughter-in-law went for the burger and she enjoyed it so much she ordered it again on our next visit.
Rincon is a big hit with the expat crowd and we found ourselves sitting in the sunshine on a mild January afternoon with a mini United Nations. The atmosphere was very convivial and people were chatting as we finished our meals and sat in the sunshine with cups of coffee.
The young waiter is a nice guy and is very friendly and pleasant, but I think when they get too busy, folks get overwhelmed. Pick a time when it's not full, and you will likely have a wonderful meal.
