Good find

During slow season (May) and early in the week, this might be the only place you find open. But food was very good, especially the appetizers and specials we tried, bar staff was fun and informative (of things to do on Culebra), and drinks hit the spot. Dinghies from the moored boats really do... read more

You can tie up your boat at the dock and get a little table overlooking the bay, with huge tarpon swimming beneath you begging for crumbs. The crab cakes were delicious and the service surprisingly fast and polite on an island where this isn't the usual!

Wonderful food, recommended to us by the locals. Beautiful atmosphere, especially around sunset. You sit on a dock and watch these HUGE fish swim around. Get the local fish to eat, you won't be sorry! Kinda pricey, but well worth it!

If you need to have lunch in Culebra then Dinghy Dock is good choice. While you are eating you can sit by water and feel some nice breeze on hot and sunny day!

One of the best views of the harbor! Great food, fun place. Try to sit at one of the small tables right beside the water and watch the tarpon swim by waiting for food. It's quite a site to watch them jump out of the water to catch the food thrown to them by guests and staff alike.

We arrived by Dingy to the Dingy Dock to go to Flamenco Beach! When we were done we stayed and had drinks and lunch! I had a virgin mango daiquiri that was delicious and chicken and stake nacho!! it was so big it filled up! This place is super laid back and just a fun atmosphere!!!

EXCELLENT time to be had. Vibrant bar scene. Food looked and smelled fantastic and if I had not eaten beforehand would have had food. On Saturday night, the local drummers come out and do a set in the bar. Dancing is OK and if you have a

A typical island dockside restaurant with a very lively bar. Sit next to the water and watch the 20-30 lb. tarpon fight for scraps thrown in the water. We started with a spinach artichoke dip served with warm pita bread. My surf and turf was acceptable. My wife said the ribs were exceptionally tender. We go for the atmosphere and... More

Went there for lunch with my kids. They loved the location, feeding the tarpons off the dock. The view was pretty. The waitress was nice and the homemade limeade was good. The hummus plate was o.k., the burger was just a burger, but the bean wrap and the fish sandwich was good. At $80 for 2 adults and 2 kids... More

This was a disappointment. Food was awful. Ambience was amazing. Water side seating with enormous seafish swimming alongside the table. Like looking in an aquarium. Go for drinks.
