Good seafood and a nice place to eat. Not my favorite place on the island to have dinner, but I still recommend checking it out.

We saw an advert for El Eden that said it was 'Fine dining with fun', and decided to go - it also stated that reservations were recommended, so we made a reservation a day in advance. When we were met by the owner (the 'woman' mentioned in previous comments) she said the reservation didn't stand and that we would have... More

As the owner told us after we had done almost 1 hour of waiting: "good food is not fast food", to which I replied: "so your food must be pretty spectacular!” Truth be told, the food is excellent. The restaurant is very lively, the owners are very nice and make for good conversation while we were waiting, but we made... More

My wife and i chose this hidden little place to celebrate her 40th. Seemed interesting and cozy. This couldn't have been further from the truth. To call the wait staff incompetent is being kind. Over an hour to get our food. We thought the appetizers would hold us over.. The mussels came out and most were closed and unopenable. They... More

El Eden serves wonderful food informally. Never had a not great meal. I love their triple chocolate cake. Very good wait peopel -- friendly and efficient. They were booked up for Christmas Eve -- but did give us the cake for take out.

While the food was good, the terrible customer service is a deal breaker! The managers/owners, were incredibly rude and abrasive, the rest of the waiting staff was no better and it took well over an hour to get our food. We never did get the appetizer we ordered and finally had to get up, walk to the kitchen and get... More

The meals were good but it took over an hour for our dinner to arrive. Good thing the gin & tonics kept coming.

I have no idea why this restaurant gets such great reviews. This was by far the most disappointing meal on our 6 day trip to Culebra. The atmosphere is like a college bar and the tables and chairs are so close together that I couldn't walk through the restaurant to the bathroom. Serving sizes are HUGE, but not that tasty... More

Excellent food, you must make a reservation since the place fills up due to probably not having any competition when it comes to the quality.
