great tuna and lamb

This is a new restaurant, so be patient. The pepper crusted tuna was superb, as was the rack of lamb, but avoid the Italian house specials. They don't yet have control of these.

The menu is a copy of New York/ Jersey Shore lunch with salads, cheese steaks , burgers, pickles and fries. Small portions and NY prices. The food is adequate. The seating is outdoors and comfortable with a good ocean view, you must look over the hotel pool and over a wall to see the ocean. The restaurant is clean and... More

We ate here several times while spending six nights staying at Casa Islena: breakfast every day (it was really the only option), a couple of lunches and a couple of dinners. It operates as part of the inn for breakfast, as Island House -- leased to a couple who have high ambitions for the restaurant -- for lunch and dinner.... More

We were in town for a month over the holidays and were fortunate enough to eat at Island House at Casa Islena several times before and after surfing. Every meal was outstanding. The breakfast sandwiches were excellent as were the new dinner entrees. Service was impeccable and lots of friendly conversations. The Bloody Mary's are perfect after a long morning... More

The Bloody Mary at Casa Islena is still absolutely the best. The service today was outstanding and the view of the ocean is fantastic. I wish they would bring back the Sunday Brunch, but if they don't, the Cubano sandwich is outstanding for lunch.

The best French dip sandwich I've ever had. My friends enjoyed their lunches. Pretty view... I will try casa islena for dinner and let u know. Lunch was a little pricey. I think it was worth it. Enjoy!

Low key friendly place for fantastic sandwiches and rum punch for our late lunch. The kids chicken nuggets were not homemade but all the sides and salsa were great. Portions are not big so you can still swim after lunch!

I had breakfast there and loved the food. Put it this way: the toast was hot enough to melt butter on it, and they don't skimp on the bacon. Lots of locals came by for breakfast as well, which I think tells you it's a good eat. Free wi-fi in the seating area.

When you have breakfast three times in the same place I guess i don't have to say its good. First day had a simple breakfast eggs,ham and sausage. Second day had a egg sandwich that was good too. And on my last visit had a Breakfast burrito, which was big and good. Also tried the bloody marys and the mimosas.... More
