Don’t judge a book by its cover

From the outside it doesn’t really say much but once your food is in front of you nothing else will matter. Absolutely delicious!

Every dish is good but nothing exceptionally note worthy to make it worth the hype and wait times. Reservations are a must.

The service was very good and nice. The food was awesome, the margaritas are good too. Remember to ask for the day special. I try the sword fish with lobster, shrimp and cheese, very good. My wife try stuffed chicken breast with goat cheese and spinach, awesome.

Just Marvelous from beginning to end, staff is extremely friendly and attentive of every detail and the food is just delicious! Trust me I am fastidiously picky but here I found my favorite restaurant in the whole Island 😀

This restaurant was recommended to us by my dad's friends. So we decided to go on our last night in Culebra. We left the best for last, yeah ! This restaurant was amazing. Great prices, big cups of sangria and dessert, oh wow !!!!!! We ordered for starters the Fried Risotto Balls and the Concha Salad. For drinks we ordered... More

I had heard so much about El Eden I was expecting much more than I got. The rice balls and seafood salad were good but the pasta had little flavor. On a tropical island i expected outdoor dining and there was only one table overlooking the parking lot. The interior of the restaurant was a mix of Tiki bar, wine... More

It is always packed with locals and I expected great meal but the food was so so, maybe because It was during off season-:( However service was great-:)

Don't be fooled by the lack of ambiance or the rude staff when you walk in... my husband and I nearly walked back out - boy are we glad we decided to give the place a chance! Service was slow, decor crude, but the food was absolutely delicious!!! Everything from the mussels to the lobster risotto (made with saffron... mmmm)... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is a whole different story. It's not at all fancy or trendy -- it's kitschy (the mermaids!) and adorable. The food is phenomenal and the prices a great value. (I live in Manhattan and I don't expect to pay NYC prices in places like Culebra.) You will also have... More
