Recommended to us by a local

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. I ordered mango shrimp and was really pleased. My favorite part of the meal was the fresh salad that... read more

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

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

Supposedly one of the better restaurants in Eureka Springs, NOT!! Service was horrible, the manager/owner/waitress was rude and disrespectful. She had a horrible attitude and should NOT be in service industry! We waited forever for the drinks and then when we finally got them, they were mixed wrong and consequentially tasted awful...it went downhill from there really fast!! When we... More

Kitschy decor inside and out, so we wondered what we might be getting into. Wonderful decision to stop here. We ordered the salsa sampler which has 9 different types of salsa to try. Outstanding! Also had the vegetable soup and the Pollo Mole. Wow. Service was a bit slow but there was one waitress and a lot of people there.... More

Beautiful food with fresh local flavor. The waitress told us that 30 to 40% of the food was locally grown. You could taste it. Not disappointed at all. If you like authentic food with vibrant flavors then Caribe is a must!

I came to Eureka with my wife for a weekend getaway. It was around 1:30 when we arrived and we were starving and decided to stop in at the vividly decorated Caribé. I had the Pollo Mole which was delicious, the chicken was tender and the mole was top notch. It also came with a garden salad with fresh vegetables... More

Beautiful presentation, locally sourced ingredients (when possible), fun atmosphere; however, the food lacks 1) seasoning, 2) proper food combining for the vegetarian entrees & 3) portions sufficient to warrant the price. Every time we eat there I have buyer’s remorse: I can’t believe we fell for it again – we keep going every few months hoping that the chef will... More
