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

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.

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.

Another TA member recommended the cheeseburgers and they were right! After having been in Culebra fro half a week, we craved a cheeseburger and El Batey did not disappoint! Reasonable prices; BYOB
