Good chalupas

Visited Caribe shortly after our arrival in Eureka Springs. Tuesday is Chalupa night and we both gave them a try. We ordered the veggie and the mixed seafood. Food was good - but not great - and moderately priced. Might choose to go there again if we return to ES, but not sure.

In plain and simple terms, the food sucks, the staff is rude, the manager/owner/waitress is the worst I have ever come across. I do not recommend this place, please give your money to other much more courteous and worthwhile restaurants in Eureka Springs.

We've been here for dinner any number of times and always had a good experience. They have great margaritas.

We were hungry and stopped on a whim. Boy, are we glad we did! The guacamole tower was fantastic, the margaritas some of the best we've had, the meal was amazing, and the salsa? To die for! Would we go back? YESSSSSSSSS!!!! Don't miss a chance to dine here!

Caribe is one of our favorite spots to dine in Eureka Springs. We love the festive atmosphere and the wonderful food. This visit we went with two other couples and everyone had a great time. The food was amazing. Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves. Being out of downtown you don't have to fight the crowds as much. The service... More

A local store owner recommended this restaurant to us. Per his instruction, we ordered the salsa platter. It was delish. My husband ordered the smoked duck. It was very moist and flavorful.

Kind of a weird little place, but good weird I guess. Food I thought was really good and my wife thought so, also. They make a real attempt to get fresh, organic greens and such when available. The service wasn't super speedy but there was only one waitress and we went at like 1:30 p.m. for lunch. This place isn't... More
