Review on El Rincon
What a joy to discover El Rincon! Unless you spend your life cruising around the quieter areas of Epsom Downs, you would run the risk of never finding out about this delightful, family-run Spanish restaurant. Established in 1992 in a pleasant local shopping parade, it is a stone's throw from the famous Tattenham Corner of Epsom racecourse.
Proprietors Conchita Casares and her partner José Romay, aim to provide top quality food at fair prices - and they succeed! In addition to tapas and a full carte, the restaurant prides itself on a range of fixed-price weekly, weekend and seasonal menus.
Specialities of El Rincon are the daily-caught fresh fish and world-class paella. For starters try the cocktail of melon with prawns and mango on a bed of lettuce, dressed with cocktail sauce or tournedos of smoked salmon with prawns, eggs and mayonnaise. Main courses include suprême of chicken with prawns, chillies, basil and a rich tomato sauce and the wonderful braised lamb cooked with shallots, celery and carrots. El Rincon is also worth a visit simply to try the fillets of sea bass cooked with Serrano ham, almonds and garlic.
The wine list features a special section devoted to Crianza wines. In order to be categorized as 'Crianza', a red wine should be aged for a minimum of 24 months, of which at least 12 months should be in oak casks.
