refreshing meal

We were tired after a day on the beach but were rejuvenated by the good food and drinks and the experience of sitting by the river as boats went by. Excellent churrasco (skirt steak) and mofongo.

Menu is small but good. Staff are efficient and happy, a nice simple environment for visitors to get a decent meal and relax. A nice dockside bar for cocktails with large tarpons swimming beside you. (I'm sure they are feeding them to keep them hanging around!) There's not many restaurants I would recommend in Culebra, but this is one of... More

We made many trips to Dinghy Dock while in Culebra and it was outstanding every time. The key thing to know about dining in Culebra is that it is hit or miss as to what will be open and when. Dinghy Dock is open consistent hours each day for lunch and dinner. The view is great and there are tarpon... More

We sat at the bar, asked for the house drink, bar attendant served the best bushwacker on the island, period. Beautiful setting , relaxed atmosphere, I really liked this place. Don't be fooled by the exterior.

The restaurant has a beautiful view of the bay. The food was OK, the service was good. They have a friendly staff and a nice location. The service is super slow though.

This was totally our favorite - 1. you get to be right on the water - which every restaurant should offer but this is the only one I'm aware of on this island - 2. really great house margueritas - 3. excellent food. This seems to be "Cheers" of the Caribbean.

Location is great: it has, as the name hints, its own dinghy dock, easy to reach from Ensenada Honda anchorages. You can step off your dinghy right to the bar or restaurant floor. For the same reason it is a favorite spot for local fishermen, willing to sell their catch of the day. Through the day you'll see some very... More

Nice location its like floating in the water. Very energetic scene and wait time is a bit long since dining room seating is limited. Arrive early for dinner. Big tarpon fish on the water is entertaining to watch while waiting for your table. Mix drinks is just awesome. Try the passion fruit frozen mojito! Just great! Seafood is very fresh... More
