We stopped in here twice on Feb 9th & 10th in the evening, but never ordered a meal. On the 9th we ordered a couple drinks and got appetizers. As others have mentioned, it was very busy and took a while to get drinks/appetizers but it didn't really bother us. A local fisherman brought in fresh tuna and kingfish, but I forgot to grab enough money when we left our hotel so we settled on 3 appetizers. Although a smaller portion and expensive, the coconut shrimp & crabcakes were excellent. It was also neat to see the tarpon under the lights. Next time we'll try some food as it seems to be highly regarded by reviewers. Another bartender would do wonders to speed up drink service. Both nights we were there only 1 poor girl was behind the bar mixing drinks for the entire bar and seating areas....she never seemed to have a spare second.

Went here for drinks one night and dinner another. Looks out on the bay right on the water. Very busy. Tarpin fish actually hang out along the dock. Water is crystal clear and you can see 50 to 100 of them right next to the restaurant. Only drawback is they don't start serving dinner until 6pm and will not serve full meals at the bar (appetizers only). Because it is so busy, you really need to get there at 5pm to secure 6pm dining. This is a must visit during your stay/visit to Culebra

The wait can be a long time. If they say 1 hour it's probably more like 1.5 hours but it's worth it for the food. The meals are huge, the fish is fresh. The service is great once you are at your table. This is probably the top or second best restaurant on the island...to us we would rank it second.

Great spot to have drinks. Nice night crowd. Dinner was great. it was extremely busy and slow when we went. They only have about 12 tables plus a bar. So if it gets crowded, it can be a long wait (couple hours). Definitely recommend for lunch or dinner. Check out the huge Tarpon fish next to the dock

It's laid back but gets crowded. The food and drinks were great and reasonably priced. We especially enjoyed the seafood. Lots of fun!
