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

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

The food was ok. We tried all the tacos our fav was the fried fish. But really there was nothing great n special. The owner was there. Great guy. The place was a lil to Americanized n the service was not the best outside of the owner stopping by which is a nice touch.

The food are very good but the waitress doesn't know much. I have a kid with special needs (gluten and casein intolerance) and they can not change the menu. I will recommend this place to go as a couple or a group of friends, but no with kids.

There are not a lot of choices on this island, but the ones that are there are really really good. Just simple taco's but they are really good and priced right! I had the pork and my son had the steak....all I can tell you is that he scarfed two tacos done in about two minutes with a smile on... More
