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

We stopped here for food because it was conveniently located on the main road. The food we ordered was good and the service was awesome. The people here were nice as they are everywhere. The one downfall is that they do not serve any alcoholic beverages. Normally this is not a problem for me but unfortunately it was one of... More

Great little place for a good meal. Authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. Don't let the "bar" fool you - it's great for breakfast too. For dinner, we had the Fish burger and tried the fried "chillo" (red snapper) and it was delicious. Good service.

We had a great lunch on a beautiful day. Professional and efficient service. Two great cheeseburgers some rice and beans and plantain chips. Reasonably priced and relaxing view and location.
