Dinner was incredible!

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... read more

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-:)

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

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
