My wife and I have been returning to Rincon Puerto Rico for the past twenty years. We came for the winter season last year, just months after the destructive hurricane season. We have always believed in supporting the local economy, but there is a limit....More

Had a nice meal with some friends. Direct oceanfront dining. Beach access with chairs to watch the sunset or relax. Small, intimate place. Attentive service Certainly not cheap but a great dinner experience.

I had dinner here alone, arriving just before sunset. My server was friendly and prompt, and recommended the pescado (wahoo) curry. It was absolutely delicious and too generous to finish. I had a prime table outside, and enjoyed my dinner immensely.

The menu is very short and pricey, the place wasn’t cleaned after the hurricane, apparently. Only the view is nice.

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.

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!
