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!

Visited la Copa Llena after hearing rave reviews and was not disappointed. All the food was delicious, and the view was one of a kind. Truly spectacular setting for a weekend in Rincón.

My only complaint is the lack of high quality coffee. Management should look into investing in a high grade espresso machine.

Wonderful supper at LCL. Well crafted and unique cocktails and appertivos, followed by outstanding main course. Seared duck breast with a great wild rice and Brussels mix; wife had fresh catch, Mahi, in almond sauce. Dessert of summer custard was the best.....we will return and you should too.

We celebrated our anniversary here on the patio with a wonderful dinner and beautiful sunset. No problem getting a table right at sunset, as this is a slower time of year a week after high season ended. The service was excellent and the food simply prepared and delicious. The empanadas were recommended by the waitress and were great. Located practically next to the Blue Boy Inn, it was easy to walk back after our lovely dinner.
