Was not pleased or impressed with this restaurant at all. The service was not the best and we waited more than 30 mins for a super salty paella that was inedible. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

Very romantic place for wedding, on the waterfront and with great staff and faciliries. Food and snacks were ok. Choice of music , so so but this must if been my son's choice. I would recomend for beach wedding aficionados.

Cope Llena was only a stone's throw from our B and B (the Blue Boy Inn) in Rincon. The restaurant is a perfect spot for outdoor dining in good weather, which we had. Seated on an outside deck behind the restaurant you can hear the waves lapping against the shore. The menu was the most sophisticated in the Rincon area.... More

Every bite was delicious and I have been looking forward to a return visit. The staff - bartender, hostess, and waitress - were friendly, attentive and funny.

Went for dinner and we sat outside as the sun was setting. It is a very beautiful location. Our server was very nice and welcoming. We ordered a few small plates and drinks and everything was really good and fresh. Main courses were delicous and we had really good size portions. We indulged with dessert and the chocolate torte cake... More

Beautiful setting. Outside deck and inside seating. Looks like it is especially busy in winter given its size, but much quieter in the summer when we were there. First rate service and food. Excellent atmosphere - tables are not on top of each other. Very nice. Bill for two was about $100

We enjoyed our visit to La Copa Llena very much, so much so that I would say it was the best I have ever had in my entire life. We ordered the red snapper, the duck, scallops, and black tuna. It was all delicious and I enjoyed every bit of it even though I am a picky eater. The atmosphere... More

We found with this place with the help of our friendly Trip Advisor app - figure that! it was a Sunday early evening and the place was packed! The outside sitting has a spectacular view, specially during sunset hours. The food and service was very good too! Appetizers and fish entrees were well prepared and fresh-tasting! We'll definitely go again... More

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!
