The location on the water is stunning. Food is just fair - some was good, some was a disappointment for the price. Kids loved because of the boats as you are in the marina on the water-- but pricier for what you get food wise. But on a sunny day.... you can't help but to want to be there, looking... More

The Puffin Cafe is a great place for indoor and outdoor dining. Sitting right on the waters of the mighty Columbia the atmosphere is very unique. The decor is Carribbean Pirate in nature and all around fun. The food is Burgers and seafood but it is divine. The staff helps the keep the party alive with their helpful and playful... More

This is a small, cozy, and cute place to eat. The food was excellent and well priced. Our waitress was very nice and was fun to chat with. I highly recommend the Halibut.

The waitress are very nice and the food is alright. The atmosphere is nice because you are eating right next to the river watching people enjoying their family going out on their boat

Have lunch and watch the boats go by. Wonderful hidden floating restaurant on the Columbia River located in Camas just south of Highway 14. Food is good and the drinks are good but I find it a little pricey. A bit tricky to find but you ding it you won't be disappointed. Watch your step down the ramp as it... More

I'm visiting friends in Camas and met my cousins from Portland for a delightful casual lunch. Had the fish tacos with a margarita. Cousins had shrimp salad and ice tea. We sat outside on wood picnic benches/table. Food good but the service was just ok. The restaurant was full and I think just not enough servers or cooks. It took... More

We stopped in here after running the Spartan Sprint in Washougal. My wife was looking for a good place to grab lunch, and TripAdvisor reviews pointed us this way. Thanks, fellow TripAdvisor reviewers! The restaurant itself is a little hard to find, as you head towards the docks. There is boat trailer parking for the boat dock right in front,... More

The Puffin Cafe, where we had a fantastic & fun lunch, is located at 14 South A Street in Washougal, WA, (360-335-1522). The restaurant is actually a floating building on the north shore of the Columbia River moored at a local marina in Washougal, WA. And, as such, a delightful view of the River and watercraft motoring by was provided... More
