The food was absolutely out of this world. I'll be looking for another opportunity to visit. A little pricy but totally worth it.

I love Tex-mex and was thrilled with a spur of the moment decision to stop at this small privately owned restaurant. It is an old house turned into an eclectic brightly themed festive eating establishment. I was a little disappointed there were no chips and salsa to eat while waiting on our order but that was quickly forgotten once our... More

We ate at Caribe on Sunday for a late lunch. Restaurant was not full - maybe 5 tables occupied. This is a really neat place in terms of decor - lots of art, and one whole wall of framed molas that were incredible. Service was very fast and friendly - as far as I could tell, there was only one... More

We sat almost two hours at a table but could not order food because we were in "wrong" area. Asked to speak with manager & was told she refused. Asked again & was told by staff owner was in back but didnt care if we were unsatisfied. As we were leaving...a young couple at door with a baby were told... More

We tried this place. The food was just o,k,. but the service was lousy. We were staying nearby so it was convenient... BUT. The owner seems always hostile (3 different visits) even to her customers, not to mention her employees. Too bad. Maybe she should stay in the kitchen and improve her recipes, including her attitude.

Wow. Socially awkward!!!! We just couldn't get any peace. I am a full time, successful musician and very easy going, and I can not believe that the owner would yell and people in her restaurant. The salsa was decent, but that was all I enjoyed. It was so tense and weird. I will never be back.

So far the margaritas are sumptuous and the avacado appetizer is phenomenal......just enough heat and avacado and the homemade chips are FABULOUS! Duck entree critique to follow!

The best kept secret in Eureka, hands down the best meal in town. If you enjoy fresh and unique flavors with a fun atmosphere this is the place for you. This is not your typical Spanish cuisine with a refried beans and nachos this restaurant reaches the audience who wants authenticity and a foodie experience. A must try for any... More

If you happen to be in Eureka Springs between a Thursday and Sunday do NOT leave town without experiencing KJ's Caribe. After attempting to dine at another place that turned out to be closed we found ourselves at KJ's and what a delight! One does not merely "eat" here. If you tire of the blah blah cookie cutter chain establishments... More
