We arrived early for Rincon Surf School and the surf school suggested we eat at Casa Islena. The restaurant is also a small hotel (lovely surprise) and the view from the outdoor eating area is priceless! Everyone found something great on the menu and the service was fast, and super friendly. Loved it!

This is a great hotel that has a wonderful restaurant. Check it out for breakfast (which is huge) and lunch.

We went to this place for breakfast which is very affordable compare to other places in the area. (I don't mind paying a little bit of extra money but the food better be good.) Food was really good. Great service. Minimum wait to be seated. Great location and beautiful view. I will definitely go again.

Casa Islena is beautiful no doubt about it. I went for lunch after I heard they have good salads and sandwiches and I was totally disappointed. While the service and the view were great, everything else left much to be desired. I got a Greek salad with fish, it was pretty much a plate of romaine lettuce with some feta... More

Nice place. Good sandwiches with great selection of premium beef cuts. Superb salads and fresh fish. I found it a little expensive for the kind of food served, but is right in front of the beach and apparently you have to pay for the view.

Have been twice for breakfast. Staff are friendly and the wait was minimal with seating usually right away. Had a traditional Gringo style breakfast of eggs, homemade sausage (which was a little dry), toast or pancakes. Food was good overall and service was excellent. I would recommend for breakfast.

We stayed at the hotel and had breakfast and lunch at Casa Islena. Marie does an amazing breakfast (breakfast burrito!!!) and Mitch's margaritas are just what's needed after a day at the beach. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through Rincon. Its delicious, clean and very friendly.

Seems to have been thrown together by people who have no experience running a restaurant. Prices are high, food is mediocre. Not much effort is put into anything. I'd suggest steering clear unless it's the only place open.

Great breakfast spot! It is a perfect little place right by the beach. This is a pancakes and eggs sort of restaurant but does it well. There aren't a lot of breakfast options around town but I was more than happy to frequent this one.
