Just perfect!!! We are seafood lovers and the grill lobster was awesome. We also tried mussels and rissotto and both were excellent but lobster still my favorite. Make reservations (highly recommended). This place was great, no one is rushing you. You go to the cava and select your own wine. Enjoy!!!

The quality of the food is very good. However, the service is awful. It seems that unless you know the owners or you are from Spain, they don't care about you. Culebras is a small island where life is slow. Nonetheless, this was slower than slow.

This local restaurant is 'reservations only' because it is open maybe 2 or 3 days per week, but it has exceptionally fresh and delicious food so be sure to call ahead before you fly to Culebra.

We had the skirt steak with risotto. Steak was fatty and greasy. We had great skirt steaks at 2 other places on Culebra. The risotto was gummy and clumpy-I wish I had gotten the rice and beans. Husband had the soup special. It was basically a bean soup, and it was very good. One kid ordered pasta with red sauce-nothing... More

One of our friends ordered the fish of the day but unfortunately it was overcooked. Overall we had a good dinner time and we will go back in our next visit to... More

I loved the ambiance here! The local artwork was gorgeous and the way the place was decorated made eating there a good experience. We were not very hungry, so we just ordered small sides of the lobster risotto and it was fantastic! The owner was very friendly and told us about the local artist when she saw me looking at...
