Anacostia, SW Washington + SE Washington

Cantina Marina

600 Water St. SW
Washington, D.C., 20024, United States
TEL: (202) 554-8396

Opened at Southwest Waterfront’s Gangplank Marina in 2003, this casual eatery is the only marina restaurant located on top of the water. Situated between dinner cruise ships and the U.S.S. Sequoia presidential yacht, Cantina Marina offers unique views of the Washington Monument rising over boats docked on the channel. The restaurant includes a dining room housed in an octagonal tower and a split-level patio, both of which have a beach-inspired atmosphere with fake palm trees, fishing nets, and occasional live music. The menu features an unusual combination of Cajun and Mexican dishes, including the signature fish tacos and crawfish étouffée.

Insider Tip:

Cantina Marina is less than a mile from Nationals Park, making it a great spot to grab a few drinks before the game.
