Nice Hole in the Wall

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but it is a hidden gem. Stopped there for lunch on 2/18/15 and enjoyed it very much. The décor is cool and the menu has a good selection of seafood and burgers. The prices are really good too. We were served quickly. It opens at 11am, but I would go... read more

This restaurant doesn't look like much, but the food is great. The woman that works there makes rum cakes that are out of this world. We ate at this restaurant many times when we stayed on the island. Definitely worth the trip.

A large plate of fries and a delicious Burger while sitting outside looking at the ocean for 10 bucks. How could anyone give this place a bad review?

We ate there twice during our recent trip. Both the 12 oz. hamburger and curly fries and the grouper fillet were excellent. Prices were fair. We had a bit of a wait to get our food but is was worth it!

We were told this place used to be the IT place until it lost it's liqueur license for serving minors. Really we were here because it was the only thing open on Christmas afternoon. Nothing was fresh, fish wise, but at least he was honest about it. I asked for very little butter/oil, but it came out swimming in oil!... More

Good place to meet, across the street from Honda bay,when just getting on island or anytime for that matter. Friendly atmosphere with great bartender and super food at affordable prices. Non alcoholic beverages, only available at this time...but don't let that stop you. If you like to play pool, very nice table. If at anchor, dingy dock right across the... More

We used to go to this casual place, fast service and delicious dishes. Last summer, we were really desapointed to find out that it was loosing these values. We gave it a second chance for another souper, but we experienced the same issues: long, long waitting time, lack of food quality and a completely mixed up person trying to take... More

I visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Culebra and the food was really good. The menu states that the food is prepared at the moment (after ordered) and that is why is takes time but its worth it. I asked for the pork chops and carne frita, both with fried plantains.

Do you have to wait a little bit for your food? Yes, you're on Culebra...a fact some of these other reviewers seem to have forgotten. Just chill out, BYOB, and dig in when your plate is ready. The place is fairly no frills but the food was excellent. I had the fried chuletas with rice & beans and tostones. The... More
