Cool place I have nice woman serves food right out of her house. It's very unique experience but be open-minded and you will have a great treat. The food is good. Like a grandma's homemade meal. It is located on the main road coming to or from flamenco beach into town. Easily reached on foot from the town center. Hours are hidden mess she could be open sometimes closed others.

Barbara covers up her sign when she isn't open. You park on the rutted area that is where a lawn might be if it were not a parking area. The night we ate at Barbara's there were several parties that appeared to be friends/regulars along with us. Barbara cooks in a room in her house, you eat on the front porch. Go in, order what you want, she cooks, you pick it up, walk out to the porch, pay when you bring the dishes back. Pretty simple and very good ! Neat experience and excellent food.

We arrived on Culebra late Sunday afternoon with no groceries and no golf carts were available. Thankfully, Barbara was open on a Sunday evening and in walking distance from where we were staying near the airfield. What a happy experience and a great way to begin our time and get settled into how things work on Culebra. We loved being here among locals and visitors. You can tell Barbara and here dinner place are just beloved. Nothing was open for us to BYOB, but friendly local expats shared their wine. Don't go there expecting super-quick preparation, or for her to have everything that is on the menu. She's one person doing it all herself - she has what she has and it is GREAT! Be prepared to slow down and enjoy the wait in the evening air with conversation and kitties. The other customers will fill you in on how to order, get your food and pay. Before or after your meal, stop for ice cream 2 houses up the road....and that lady will make your waffle cone when you order it and serve it warm! What else do you need?

Food was great, funky atmosphere, BYOB, Barbara is amazing doing it all, literally. She only hangs her sign out when open so it is easy to miss, but don't. It is so worth it.

We saw the lights on at Barbara Rosa's after walking past it for a few days, and finally was able to eat there on a Thursday and Friday night. This is my favorite place to each at Culebra. Barbara is a great hostess and cook - the food was authentic and tasty and her porch (and Carly the Cat) made for a great evening! We had such great burgers the first night that we went back the next night for fish. You bus your own plates and order from a window in her house, but that's part of the charm. Barbara came out to talk to us for awhile, since we showed up so early and she had some free time. I felt like I made a new friend! Carly is a hoot, too!
