We ate there two nights in a row because we loved the setting and atmosphere. The first night the service was slow and the food arrived semi-cold, the second night it was busier and the food and service were much improved. In our case atmosphere trumped food and that's why we gave it a second go.

This is a very cute restaurant in a small hotel, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. The food is not up to par with other restaurants in the small town of El Valle. But it would be good to have a drink and enjoy the typical atmosphere.

We stayed at a B&B around the corner from Rincon Vallero. Because nothing was in walking distance and we were tired of calling taxi's, we walked over to RV to have a glass of wine. It was just beautiful and peaceful and reasonably priced. I bought some food and fed the ducks. We ate there one night and the food wasn't great, but wasn't bad. The main problem was that there were 10 to 15 people and one waitress, so the food was cold.

We are not foodies and tend towards places that offer ambience. Rincon Vallero scores highly in that regard. Having said that, the meal was quite reasonable, quality, quantity and price.

Our guide book recommended this as a good family place. Hmmm if you want to chase your kids into the goldfish ponds, sure. (Some of the fish are huge and pretty neat.) The menu is WAY to big. The whole place needs updating and felt like it had a layer of grime all over. I am glad we were there at night because we could only feel it and not see it. I was afraid that the birds chirping in the roof above us where we could see their nests would crap on us or our table. A stray dog wandered in and searched for scraps under a bunch of the tables. If you want a different experience, this is for you! I wouldn't change a thing about our night. The waitress was very friendly and efficient and the food was tasty. Pass on the veggies in favor of fries or yucca or even better, the patacones! Creole octopus, sea bass with mushrooms in foil, and sea bass a la macho were hearty and tasty. You need a car to get here or taxi.
