Best Food on Culebra. Period.

We are food snobs. Admittedly. We ate 3 meals (2 dinners and a lunch during a 3 day stay) in a row at Zaco's Tacos after finding the other dining options on Culebra a little lackluster. The food is fresh (I was dying for just one single piece of fresh produce! Found it here!), staff was incredibly... read more

The food and drink were fantastic, but the atmosphere of the back deck was tremendous. The swing was an added touch, especially for the kids. Try the desserts, they were great and capped off the delicious dinner.

Nachos (crabs/shrimp) and tacos (carnitas, pork belly) were average, burrito (carne) was better. Nice atmosphere and waitstaff, but overall food was average.

To all those who complain about service, Culebra was probably not the best vacation spot for them. The service on the island is consistently slower than what the American standard is. Everything is on island time. Take your time. Enjoy just being on the island. There's no need to be in a rush there. Now, about the food, it's delicious!... More

Yummmm! Definitely eat here at least once while you're on the island. You won't be sorry you did.Our family of 4 enjoyed an absolutely delicious, fresh and authentic meal here.

This was our second favorite place after Dinghy Dock - nice food, decent prices, simple, family-style surroundings - and lots of chickens underfoot. If you're uncomfortable with that, well - Culebra must not be your place anyway! Strongly recommend the Escalade Maguerita!

YUK ! Poor service, average food. This place is part of that mafia where they take turns to open restaurants in order to capture more people for more money and poor food/service. RUN AWAY !

The food was just ok in my opinion. Don't understand the rage about this place. Ordered a fish taco, the fish was chewy. Chips and salsa you can't go wrong. Also tried hibiscus tea, tasted like syrup...yuck
