“great tacos”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

i can't believe a little island off puerto rico would have such good fresh and good tacos. I was waiting for them to open everyday, it was unreal.

“Great food And excellent service!!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Although we are Puertorican it was our first time "tourist mode" & 4 nights trip to Culebra...
We found El Eden because of tripadvisor.. And we decided to give it a shot because of the good reviews..... Reservation on high season is recommended.. Sit will be available right on time!!

Definitely this is a most go restaurant at Culebra!!! Food was extremely delicious .. We had the seafood pasta with gnochi pesto as side dish.... Woow the taste was perfect & Two people can eat from that!!!
We also had the stuffed mahi mahi with lobster rissoto And most say the same!!! Tasted perfectly delicious ;-)

Dessert was reccomended by our extremely nice waiter (Native from Culebra and extremely nice!!!)
We had the buddin with pasas on a rum sauce!!! Woooowww.... She was not kidding when she said we would love it!!!
They even put a candle on top and sang happy bday to the birthday boy!!!!
We really enjoyed the personalized service of the owners and their staff...

Ohhh and we went back in the morning for fresh sandwishes and coffee... Very nice... Good... Gourmet... A bit high price... But for a one day try is extremely recommended!!!

El eden... Thanks for a great time!!

“Gourmet excellence”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

This is an unassuming little place off a strange road. Had it not been recommended to me, A - I would never have found it, and B - I would have been reluctant to try it. Wow, you would miss something great if you didn't sample their delicious entrees. I had lobster risotto as a side to my fish. Both were great, but the risotto is soooooo divine! Portions are HUGE. The owner is a fun guy who used to own a dairly farm in New Hampshire. Wait staff are bilingual and very friendly. Our waitress was native Puerto Rican who recently finished her masters at Columbia University in NY. You can purchase fine wines here, mixed drinks from the bar, soda or whatever. Family friendly and very low key setting. Nothing fancy but the scrumptious food! Reservations recommended.
