A fun place to eat

If you enjoy Mexican food, or a good Caesar salad, Zaco's Tacos is an excellent place to go. It's like being in a tree house and has a special area for children. Food and service were very good and should be a "must" place for Culebra.

Friendly staff, relaxed happy atmosphere, gorgeous roosters, and the food and drink is just delicious. What's not to like? Keep in mind this is a laid back island---don't expect American speediness---and you will have a great time.

Great little spot to eat. Food is reasonably priced, the staff was well trained and friendly. The outdoor seating and bar make you feel like you found a secret place. The food was professionally prepared, and the chef(s) made sure to thank us on the way out every time. Worth a stop everytime you are near.

There is a "scene" at this taco restaurant, that may create a long wait for a table, but there is also good food and plenty of choices for an exotic drink or two. There are off-the-beaten track versions of soft tacos, i.e., pork belly (which was fabulous one night, so-so the next), tuna (very good). Three tacos are quite filling,... More

Food: Burritos, which we ordered, were ok, it was hard to find a single chunk of carne asada on it, don't get me wrong burrito looked huge outside, inside a pile of rice and beans. Service: was good, but you dont want to pay for good service, you pay for the best service in town and this place will not... More

Loved the atmo here! Food was excellent and fresh! Interesting without overdoing it. LOVED my tofu and spinach taco (San Diego style) They know what they are doing. Been going to culebra for 17 years and Zaco's is a needed and welcome addition. Drinks were great and the staff super friendly. See you next year Zaco's!

The food hear is really good. Mexican food in Culebra who would have thought. The carne Asada and fish taco's were good. I will return again... the only thing that bugged a little was that it was hot (no AC).... way to hot for any tequila shots.... but your on vacation... its doable..

incredible burgers on Sunday's. Love the pork belly and fish tacos Today's discovery was the lime-aid. Who would think a truly world class Mexican restaurant here on our beautiful little island.

The first and only place on Culebra to serve craft brew on tap! Halleluiah! We made at least three visits while vacationing on the island (no small feat since they are closed on weekends - well, not counting Sunday brunch). We especially enjoyed the Galeon IPA from Puerto Ricos Barlovento Brewing Company. Kudos to Zaco's! The bean, spinach and red... More

Ate lunch with another couple. Great experience. Wonderful food - had fish tacos, tuna taco, nachos, burritos, and a couple of other items. Good beer selection including IPAs. Great outdoor atmosphere. Watched chickens and roosters parade around the restaurant grounds. Definitely a must for a meal on Culebra!!
