You walk up, you order, she calls you when it's ready, and you return your dishes when you're done. Dassit. Barbara Rosa, as others have said, is a bit guarded, but I guess I would be too if I was allowing a constant stream of...More

That fresh grouper fillet is like butter- perfectly prepared, fresh, moist, just a little sweet, just a little savory, generous serving accompanied by a nice little salad and some solid steak fries with genuine potato taste. Mmmm, mmmm good. She's not particularly social or friendly,...More

The food at Barbara Rosa's is fantastic. It isn't a restaurant with wait-staff and piped in music. But it feels like it fits Culebra to me. Small, local, variable hours, friendly and delicious. That's the Caribbean. We ate at all of the restaurants on Culebra,...More

Visiting Barbara's is something you just have to do, if you're lucky enough to catch her when she's open. You are basically eating on the porch of her house, and she's a very sweet woman. We were the only people there on the night that...More

This place feels like mom and pop decided to go to a garage sale and open a restaurant with the items purchased. Slow service decent food but nothing to rave about. Awful decor and furniture. Trailer park meets island setting! Daddy works the bar and...More

Barbara Rosa is an excellent one lady operation with home cooking Island style. Walk inside to order, enjoy a good conversation outside on the porch while your food is being cooked especially for you. BYOB if so inclined. Everything we had was wonderful and you...More

Great home cooked food! Period. In fact, it's exactly like stopping by mom's to have dinner. In fact, if I were her son I would be 40 and still living at home. She will stand and talk with you if it's not too busy and...More

The restaurant isn't open every night, so you should call before you go (or have a Plan B). On different occasions we had fish and chips, grilled fish and a breaded pork loin. The food is simple, more like home cooking than fancy chef preparation....More

OK, Barbara Rosa plays a little hard to get. She's closed most of the time, she doesn't advertise, and you just have to believe that it's worth your time to keep checking to see if she's open. How you know is that while, normally she...More
