    Great spot in the vibe. Drinks were great and the food was delicious. Had three donuts for the table and some tots and we didn’t leave a crumb of either.

    Food was amazing, we definitely over ordered (2 starters and 3 entrees for 3 adults). The cocktails were imaginative and were very good. The best was the Telenovela but the classic daquiri and Dark & Stormy were spot on as well. The ambience is really cute, I loved the quirky decor and live plants. This is a great GNO location or date spot. It's quite cozy inside so not great for big groups but there is an outdoor patio that would be more conducive for that. Our waitress was very sweet and the right amount of attentive. We would absolutely go back when in VB.

    Although we came early we were still sat in a reasonable manner, staff was super friendly and flexible. Food was delicious and fairly priced for the location. Menu concept is diverse and very well thought out. Despite the indoor seating being rather cramped due to the size of the building, they utilize their space very well. If you’re new to the area or just visiting this place is more than worthy of return visits. Also — pink hats!!

    The food was amazing. I got the steak and pepper bowl. Its good flavors put together and it's very filling. I could finish it. They are a small business, with a small staff - be patient with them and that! Also, loved the lemonade and yucca tots! I would not reorder any pastries because that chocolate donut was not worth it for me.

    Outstanding food. Hot and fresh. Clams maybe a little too salty but I don't add much salt to my food and everything is salty to me. Mixed drinks were great.

    If you have never been here…what are you doing? The food, the drinks, the vibes- all immaculate. Not only do they rotate their menu seasonally but they also host theme nights and events so you can try something new all the time. If you haven’t been, clear your schedule and go

    DONT LEAVE WITHOUT TRYING THE DOUGHNUTS. Trust me, they’re amazing! I recently had brunch at the Pink Dinghy with my husband and one of our friends. It was cool outside but the sun hits the tables just right so we weren’t cold. This restaurant is very, very cute. The food selections were pretty eclectic and forced me to step out of my comfort zone. My food was awesome until a wasp landed in it but that’s not the fault of the restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant even if only for doughnuts and Instagram worthy photos.

    Had a good experience last year with sandwiches. This brunch, unfortunately, was not good. Biscuits were dense and dry. Veggies in the steak bowl completely burned. French toast burnt. Really didn't enjoy the food.

    Was not impressed. Can’t really get food the way you want it. The brussels sprouts were excellent. I felt like the food wasn’t top quality. We go out to eat frequently and with all the five star reviews I expected to be much better but we have had much better elsewhere- we will not be back.
