Having owned a vacation home in Rincon for the last several years, we always look forward to the tapas at Casa Islena.Yes, the portions are small,that's what tapas are!!! It is the restaurant that our visiting family and friends ask for most, and we are happy to go there several times a month, that is how affordable it is.

The Casa Islena is beautiful, and has a nice setting on the beach. We loved the Tapas, and the price was affordable.
A different idea for a great meal!

We went here twice while we were in Rincon. Loved the atmosphere, the service was very good and everything we tried was excellent.

Went to this restaurant in lovely Rincon because we love tapas, however I don't know if they are hurting from the economy or just know they can gouge unsuspecting Americans who want to be trendy, but the portions are really ridiculously small! The empanadilla was the only decently sized/price thing on the menu. We paid $10 for two small scallops--not even regular size!! Also we had the ceviche which came out as about $12 for a quarter cup of some fish. Really disappointing too is that our waitress took our drink and food order and then disappeared from our table for the rest of the night. Hopefully they share tips because we had three different servers, but our main waitress really seemed to be distracted while talking to us. I had to repeat my drink order twice because there was no eye contact as she stared at one of her other tables. Very disappointed that we were fooled by the idea of nice tapas. Had to go get Taco Maker afterwards because despite paying $75 for a meal, we were still hungry! I have never had that experience in my life. Boo Casa Islena, shame on you.
