Great burger, good price, nice view. This place is located at the main street. Bring your own beer. They don't sale any alcoholic beverages, service is average, waiting time is normal.

Prices are very reasonable. Love its rice and beans. Has a Pool table to play while you wait for your dinner. Outside sitting tables have a beautifull view and cool breeze from the Ensenada Honda.

We went to El Batey on the recommendation of a local. It is BYOB, but we had a cooler with us so that worked in our favor. Several in our party ordered the burgers and they were very happy with the results! I ordered the grouper fish burger on both visits during our stay. Hands down they best fish sandwich... More

I went to El Batey for a late dinner and they served good local food in generous amounts. It is an open place so heat is a little trouble. The environment needs some improvements. Overall this is more a local-ambient restaurant than a charming gourmet place but you can expect good food.

Even if you notice that the place its empty you should honestly try their buguers, they are juicy and flavorfull. The fish burger was an unexpected nice surprise, tender and delicious. I highly recommend it.

This is a very local place in Culebra, I think most of the time is open. I went there with my boyfriend on our last day in the island and on a mission to find a place that offered burgers at 2pm because everything else was closed. And we finally got a winner, the only sad part is that they... More

No one else in the place at five pm and it still took 45 minutes to get our meals. On the other hand, very good rice and beans with big chunks of pork.

First of all, the place looks like you could at least have a Medalla Beer with your meal, but I think they must have lost their license. The menu is written in such a way on a board on the wall that it takes a long time to figure out what they serve, having ordered it takes a long time... More
