I cannot say enough ably out this restaurant. Not only was the food excellent but the staff and the ambiance / décor was fun and interesting. It was Chalupa night when we were there and they were absolutely the best thing I've eaten in awhile. Great place, out of the way but worth the short drive.

I love to go and just get their salsa sampler appetizer. We sometimes get the jalapeno pie as well. Our daughter loves their nachos. I've never had anything here that wasn't awesome.

As other reviewers have stated, it is small and noisy. Not a big deal. I realize that they rely on local produce; HOWEVER... don't advertise what you don't have. I ordered 3 different things off of the menu and was told they were out of each (the waiter had to disappear for a while and then come back to tell... More

I have read some negative reviews and am sorry to hear them. I would advise people going to eat at CARIBE to learn to relax, take it slow and easy and enjoy! The black bean soup is delicious, the salsas fresh, the guacamole fabulous and the chaplupas very good. Running a cafe is very, very hard work. Visitors: learn to... More

Not what I expected either! The talipia shrimp Enchiladas had no shrimp. The mole chicken lacked flavor. The salad was good. Service was slow and inattentive!

Don't go in a hurry or starving at that particular moment. New owners are getting underway and have some unusual and delicious menu items.

I was expecting Caribbean food and you might be able to call a couple of dishes Caribbean but mainly this place is Tex-Mex. Food was decent, I had a beef burrito and wife had veggie enchiladas both of which was good and hot. I found it odd you had to order chips and salsa and they were extra. There were... More

We visit Eureka Springs on a regular basis but decided on a recent trip to only visit restaurants we had never visited before. This restaurant was on that list. This is not a traditional mexican restaurant. The menu items are unique and we enjoyed our entrees. I had shrimp and tilapia burritos and they were very good. My partner had... More

Caribe just unveiled their new lunch menu, with lunch being served on Tues-Sun 10am-3pm. House-made cheeses, smoked eggplant, lamb meatballs, soups, sandwiches, bowls, and even a few brekkie items. Always fresh ingredients Always great flavors!
