Description: The management team of Casa Islena Restaurant (also known as The Tapas Bar) has proudly taken over the the historic Black Eagle Restaurant, rechristening it "La Copa Llena". Located right on the ocean, specifically the south side of the Tres Palmas Marine Preserve, people have been enjoying the sunsets from the Black Eagle deck since the 1970's. The combination of Chef Brendan Basham's cuisine, Casa Islena's charm, and the view of the waves, whales, and sunsets, provides a singular Rincon dining experience. With the adoption of a larger space, Brendan has been able to expand the menu and experiment more while maintaining the strict standards of quality that the local community and returning tourists have come to expect for the last 6 years. We have included some of our old favorites such as the char-grilled octopus with heirloom beans and papaya salad, and introduced some incredible new dishes like poke (yellowfin tuna, avocado, and seaweed), coconut steamed mussels with homemade chorizo and fresh herbs, and a 20 oz. T-bone steak with flageolet-corn succotash and a yukon-parsnip mash. As always, the menu tends to change upon the availability of ingredients, keeping the chef creative and our guests surprised. Brunch is served Sundays from 10am-2pm with diverse offerings such as brown butter crepes and southwest style chilaquiles (eggs scrambled with fried corn tortillas and green chile-tomatillo salsa). Happy hour everyday from 3pm until 7pm includes $2 Medallas, $3 well drinks, and $4 house wine. And we're excited to continue the legacy of the ever entertaining Wednesday night Bingo starting around 9pm. Sunset live music Sundays from 4pm-7pm.Buen Provecho!

Beautiful Rincon sunsets on outdoor patio with food to match. Mango salad and tuna poke yummy. Homemade chorizo with mussels. Leave room for crepe dessert. Highly recommend.

We ate here twice, and each time was an amazing experience. The menu is surprisingly sophisticated for a small beach town. Everything we had was spot on with the flavors and super fresh ingredients. The outdoor deck has a beautiful view of the ocean, and after dark it's lit by charming string lights. The atmosphere is laid back yet nice enough for a special occasion. The service is friendly and professional.

Fresh tuna poke, delicious coconut curry, spicy paella. Good drinks and one of the better wine lists we saw in rincon. Our server Leo was very friendly and nice. Attentive but not overbearing. Location. Right on the weather, cool chill vibe. Loved it!

Great food in a beautiful setting. Go for sunset; you will not be disappointed! Everything we tried was wonderful and we went twice! Especially good was the fish curry but we were more than happy with everything else. Great staff as well. Highly recommend!
