“Funky, fun, sense of authentic atmosphere”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Would be a bit tricky to find on foot in the dark. Not cheap but good value and variety. Lobster risotto with saffron is featured -- I liked it, my husband was unimpressed. Great mussels.

“Treasure within”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

When you walk up, you'll be doubtful that this double wide trailer could possibly be the nicest restaurant in town. But believe it. The decor is fun. Don't mind the coolers. This is romantic outside the box. I had the lobster risotto and it was one if the best meals I've ever had. I can't remember what my husband had, but he enjoyed his too. Make reservations or miss out!

First night I went in for dinner and was greeting, seated, and treated like family. The menu was explained and customizable. Mussels were awesome lobster was perfect! Must and will go again. Ended up going the rest of my nights on the island. Can't wait til next vacation to go back

“an oasis of freshness”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Puerto Rican cuisine relies heavily on the fryer. El Eden does not! After meeting owner Richard and friends earlier in my travel day, I wandered over for an early meal (solo) at the bar. The "liar's pasta" made from zuchnini "spaghetti" was an extremely refreshing, flavorful dish. And the soup of the day (a white bean) was delish as well. As an added bonus, El Eden sells take out wines and beers that are a cut above the stuff available at the other stores in "town".

“Loved it! Great Food, Great Ambience!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Congrats to Luz and Richard for their consistent quality on the food served. Everytime we go to Culebra, this is the place to have lunch and dinner. And when the owners are in, nothing escapes them. The risottos, the seafood, everything is just too good for such a small island and market. How do they do it?
