I would probably give this a 3.5. The food was good and the drinks nice. For the price one might expect a little more. But all in all, it wasn't bad. I'd recommend the Tin Box as... read more

Do not bother to go to this restaurant. You will come out still hungry after paying almost 35-40 pp. it took us 10 minutes to place an order for dinner. Live music was advertised to play on Friday night and we were also informed that there will be a DJ, but there was no sign of such event for the... More

Went on a Friday night because they advertised that steel bands on Friday and Saturday starting at 7pm. There were no bands at 8:15 when we left. The place was empty when we got there and only had a few more tables when we left. It is on the water, but not much of a view, since its on a... More

We have spent 4 days in Culebra with the luck to choose Mamacita's on the first day for our lunch. Didn't go anywhere else afterwards (thus have no comparison on the island), we were so satisfied with all the food, the service and the atmosphere. The stake is the best not only in Puerto Rico but one of the bests... More

I live on the island of Culebra and I haven't been to the new Mamacitas since the change in ownership. The review is based on my personal experience dining at the restaurant on a Monday night and the food was superb!!! The prices are a little on the high end, but, no more different than many other restaurants on the... More

We like the food and service very much! The price is much better for lunch, but pricey for dinner. The location is great, you can see the ocean canal and boats passing by. They have few vegetarian options. I wish they had whole grain alternatives, like brown rice, whole wheat wraps and pasta.

This place was under new management when we went there, it was as good if not better than it was rated before . You can sit right by the water and watch tarpen play in the lighted water. If your lucky like we were a green sea turtle paid visit . Would highly recommend this place for the entire family... More

The place is beautiful and the positive side is that when everything else is closed in Culebra you can count on Mamacita's being open. However, the food is pricey and not a good value for your money. We ordered penne pasta with shrimp and alfredo sauce. The shrimp were of the pre-frozen kind, the sauce was right out of a... More

Excellent food and service, prime location with lively ambiance. New ownership to re-open in November with new menu. Promises to be another great place to eat while in Culebra

I visited Mamacitas for dinner although I liked the place, the food was not that great and the service either. I ordered the Mofongo de Pana with Shrimps. I liked the mofongo but the shrimps did not have any sauce and I was still hungry afterwards. I also tried the desert and did not enjoy it. The food was expensive... More
