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

This place was a stop on a whim. I am so glad we stopped. Fresh veggies grown in the area and amazing food. Great service as well! A must stop for visitors.

This is our second visit to Caribe, and we were once again very happy with the experience! The night of our visit they were having a wine and food night with a local winery, Railway. I have the duck breast and my wife had the shrimp scampi. The food was delicious, and the wine pairings were excellent! We really love... More

We arrived at the restaurant after traveling for a day trip to Eureka Springs only to be told that they weren't seating anyone else. From where we were standing, you could see about a half dozen empty tables and servers bringing food and servicing other tables with patrons. We went back out side and noticed that their OPEN sign was... More

Fresh delicious food made her style. The duck was outstanding. Yummy nachos. And the mango salsa is so unique. The salads are so good and huge. I can't say anything negative about this place except I wish it was still downtown.

Very friendly and accommodating! Good food! Their "Queso" is called something different, but it is amazing!

My daughter and I regularly travel to Eureka Springs, and Caribe is our favorite restaurant in town. Excellent food with a Latin bent, but head and shoulders better than the average Mexican restaurant. They use fresh, often locally grown, ingredients, cooked on premises (no yucky processed garbage here), and the prices are very reasonable. The portions are so generous that... More

As a local farmer, i will say that KJ (Caribe's owner and chef) is the biggest supporter of our local farmers, and as a result, the food she offers is freshest and flavors-full. I recommend the large size salads which are generous and so colorful. The rice and beans which come with the enchiladas and other dishes are superior in... More

Many trips to Eureka, but my first to this restaurant. It is always a good sign when you see locals eating at a place. For some reason, I didn't think it was a Mexican restaurant. But, it was good. We had a little delay in service, but there was one waitress for ten tables and they were busy on a... More

We have gone to their location 2 times and they were closed with a note on the door stating some reason they were not open. Their hours are published and they do not follow them. Last week again I called before going 3 times and no answer. That's it, I am done trying to spend my money here.
