This place feels like a real local joint, and the menu is traditional dishes, so we were looking forward to our dinners here. However, they ended up being a bit disappointing. The shrimp dish only had about 4 shrimp in it, and the pork chops...More

My husband and I went to El Caobo while visiting Culebra after reading the review about the flan. The restaurant is run by a man, Marco, who took our order and ran the bar while his wife cooked. It was a Friday night but we...More

A local told us about this hidden gem. We had been told that she made the best flan so we initially came to try the flan. She was out but said she would have more flan on Monday. We returned on Monday for the flan...More

It is a small restaurant with simple and basic seating arrangements. The owner takes the orders and serves the food while his wife cooks in a little attached kitchen. They have ample choices for drinks. Food menu is not too big as I believe everything...More

So this is truly local - food is good and made to order - one at a time. So come early and be prepared to wait. Prices are reasonable and drinks are cheap. Wouldn't choose it if only here for a day or two as...More

Great owners.. Great Food. Good Prices. And very local not commercialized. It was like having a meal in someone's home.

Inexpensive wine and Medella, and food is fantastic. Just a hole in the wall, but worth checking out. One my more memorable meals on the island. Owner is very nice.
