About
Located right on the beach, people have been enjoying the sunsets from La Copa Llena’s open air deck since the 1970’s (formerly The Black Eagle). Offering delicious & interesting dishes such as char-grilled octopus with heirloom beans, fresh local fish, green papaya salad, and red wine braised lamb shank combined with the view of the waves, whales, and sunsets, we provide a singular casual Rincon dining experience. The specials tend to change upon the availability of ingredients, keeping the chef, Brian Raff, creative and our guests surprised. If you’re not feeling hungry, La Copa Llena has a impressive cocktail list, local craft beer on tap, and a small but diverse wine list to be enjoyed at

When we were told “20 minute wait time” we didn’t think we’d wait over an hour. After an hour and 30 minutes, we finally got seated. The waitress never came. Finally, someone saw the annoyed look on our faces and approached us, gave us a...menu & never came back. I had to get up and fill my own water. We finally place our food order and continued to wait over 20 minutes... after waiting and waiting.. my boyfriend & I got up and left the restaurant. Wasted over 2 hours on crappy service!!! Worst place in Rincon.More

I tasted my friends curried Hake fish. Very strange flavors. My beet salad was ok. Over cooked beets. Dressing uninteresting. Fried shrimp was fine. Margarita was yummy

Took my mom here on our last night in Rincon. I really liked the atmosphere as well as the location. As other reviewers have said, it it beautiful. I’m giving it a 4 because I didn’t find the staff to be overly friendly and the...food was pricey for what it was. I had Mahi Mahi with plantains and rice for around $30. It was good, but really still felt it was overpriced. Anywho, if you want a ridiculously extravagant meal during your stay in Rincon, come here at sunset. It is very pretty!!!More

Located right on Marina Beach in Rincon, La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle is a must on your visit. The food is truly delicious and professionally presented. Fresh seafood and other local ingredients. Beautiful drinks in a beautiful setting. Great place to watch the...sunset!!More

Beautiful location, wonderful service, and the food is delicious. Just a note, most of the tables are outdoors and rain will impact service.

We only had appetizers and drinks at the bar, and they were all fresh and delicious. Incredibly friendly and attentive staff.

We travel to Rincon every year during the holidays. La Copa Llena is one of our usual dinner spots. It’s a beautiful setting, and we love the ambiance with the waves crashing in the background. Unfortunately, the food was VERY disappointing this year. My steak...was overdone and should have just been sent back. My partner’s fish was the same way. We didn’t say anything, but Llena is officially on probation with us.More

Great beach front bar/restaurant. Food is excellent. Only ordered apps but they were great. Ordered a side of rice and vegetables...cooked to perfection so I would say the entrees must be spot on.

Hello. Yes, we're about 10 minutes from your guesthouse and we are located directly on the water with a beautiful view of the sunset. Small children are welcome.

Actually, we do not accept reservations. The holidays are over so it shouldn't be too terrible of a wait. Thanks.
