The tiny island of Culebra is one of the last places you'd expect to come upon culinary excellence, but that's exactly what you get at Juanita Bananas. Executive Chef Jennifer Daubin focuses on local ingredients, most of which come from the restaurant's own greenhouses. Seafood is a specialty here—no surprise, as Daubin's parents ran a fish restaurant on the island for nearly 20 years. Look for dishes like buttery sweet lobster with garlic and lime or chunks of delicately fried grouper. The informal dining room rests in a hillside wooden bungalow overlooking trees heavy with papayas and passion fruit. One caveat: despite the restaurant's small size, the staff sometimes seems harried.

Open Fridays through Mondays 5:30 to 10 pm.
