Dinghy Dock is a must

Going to Culebra and not stopping at Dinghy Dock is like not going at all... pick a table bayside, order a Dinghy Burger and a Medalla beer (or three) and spend two hours watching the tides change! Throw some food at the water and see what happens... If hungrier.. order fish with rice and beans... read more

We loved this spot for drinks and apps. Did eat dinner one night while watching the tarpon swim buy. Great place to interact with other travelers.

Good food but you need to give yourself a lot of time and waiting since they have very few tables and have no interest in moving people fast. Moderate price.

We went to the Dinghy Dock thinking there might be entertainment, such as a band, but we left too early for that. However we had been thoroughly entertained by 3 young children feeding the tarpon, and left happy. The fish was delicious. Come hungry because the portions are large. We had to wait a while at the bar, but then... More

My wife and I visited beautiful Culebra for our 5th wedding anniversary in November of 2014 and the Dinghy Dock was truly one of our best experiences. Going for breakfast is an absolute must and it offers the best atmosphere on the island to have a drink. The owner, Dale, is also an amazing person and my only regret is... More

Found this spot based on the recommendation of fellow trip advisor reviews.....it did not disappointment. This is a great place for a light lunch with the most beautiful views you can imagine. It's right on the water which was really nice. You could arrive on boat or via golf cart/car. I had El Capitan burger which was good. My boyfriend... More

We love it here. The four stars instead of five is the result of the lackadaisical service. We went once for lunch and had wraps and yucca fries dockside while watching the tarpon. They are the stars and definitely reason enough to visit DD at least once while you are in culebra. Maybe we are easily amused. We returned for... More

Expected this to be Culebra's version of Friday's, but it was better in several respects. Great location on the water overlooking the bay, with tarpon fish swarming in the water next to the restaurant (which is only 2-3 feet above water level) waiting for food discards to be thrown in. Food choices were not bad and reasonably well prepared, as... More
