We loved El Eden and as it worked out, it was our last dinner during our vacation. A few suggestions: get the Mussels, the Chorizo Risotto, and the Churrasco... This was my meal, and it was heavenly. Loved the service and the atmosphere. Frankly this restaurant is underrated on tripadvisor and I would give it a higher rating if I... More

Many locals and frequent travelers to Culebra suggested this restaurant to me. I went during the prime tourist season in December so it was really lucky that we got a table so be sure to make a reservation! Both the risottos (lobster and mushroom) were absolutely delicious. The lobster was also a great deal compared to American lobster prices at... More

El Eden is the most reliable place to eat on the island. The owners, Luz and her husband, are both very nice and accommodating. I was pleasantly surprised to see they have a vegetarian option of zucchini "pasta" which was delicious. I also tried the gnocchi and the risotto my relatives had and both very very good. All in all... More

We had NYE dinner here. It was a limited menu with choice of three appetizers, entrees, etc. My friend ordered the shrimp rice ball appetizer. Big balls of fried rice with one miniature shrimp in the middle of each. The beef entree selection was billed as "prime rib." It was actually a $5 at best grocery store quality piece of... More

Always ask what is fresh on Culebra before ordering. They'll be honest with you. So we ordered lobster and seafood pasta. By the end we joked about the pasta being seafood surprise: you never know what or when you'll find something next. It was a huge plate with lots! of simple pasta. Fortunately the lobster was fresh and prepared properly.... More

We had a great dinner, starting with a frozen margarita! Lobster is highly recommended, apparently it is a must here; the lobster risotto is very tasty, but take it as a side, otherwise you will not be able to finish it. Do consider the passion fruit mousse. The wine list is very good for Culebra; reasonable pricing and very attentive... More

Culebra is known for its beaches, kayaking and snorkeling. Being such a hot vacation spot, when we arrived on Culebra, we decided to try some of the local fare, hoping that the island environment had inspired some great seafood dishes and a relaxing atmosphere. We decided to try El Eden first. The restaurant is a bit off of the main... More

Went there at 7:30pm and the owner told us they had enough people so they could close at 9. I've eaten here before but with this kind of service/mentality it is not worth it.
