My husband and I LOVED the Pickled Parrot. You absolutely cannot beat the location- a little hut that juts out over the clear turquoise water below. We came here almost every day of our trip for happy hour (except for one day where it was randomly closed, but so goes island life!). The beers are cold; the rum punch is... More

We stayed in the house next door, so we went a few times over to George's Pickled Parrot. Apparently he wants to sell the place as he is tired of it and you can feel that unfortunately. The place is amazing and you sit right over the water which is beautiful. George always has cold beers, but that's about it.... More

We came here for lunch. How can you complain? On the pier over the water, amazing pina coladas, food was good, the owner and locals were very friendly. We even bought some homemade bug repellent that worked great!

I highly recommend Yessica and George’s place to enjoy the views, some Jimmy Buffet tunes and the best BBQ burgers. If you can get there for the monthly Pig Roast, consider yourself extra blessed. Last time I was there, I took home a bottle of the BBQ sauce (I hide it in my fridge) to enjoy when I need to... More

Good value food with cheap drinks in a lovely spot right on the water. Owner was friendly. Free wifi. Casual but a great lunch.

Ate here with a group of friends on a rainy afternoon in Bocas. It had a great vibe and a great view of the water. It was the start of low season so the place not busy at all. We were welcomed by a really friendly waitress/assistant chef/bartender who made us delicious mojitos, served us several beers, and chatted with... More

We went here because of the good reviews from Tripadvisor. The first day we went there it was closed and we had to go to the wonderful Bibis Restaurant next too, next day we came back and it was open. We came in and the owner (i think) didnt even say hi, just handled the menus to us and he... More

We had lunch here one day. The owner was very friendly and gave us some good advice about places to snorkel. We had burgers on the advice of some other people who had eaten there and they were really good, as was the view and the nice breezes.

I have lived in Bocas for the last 6 years. The Pickled Parrot is one of my favorite bar/restaurants. If you opened a dictionary and looked up the word ¨Tiki Bar¨there would be a picture of the Pickled Parrot. A natural wood structure with a real thached roof built out over the blue/green waters of the Caribbean. Before eating be... More
