quasadillas were very good. Local Red Rooster brew is excellent. The staff needs to be taught how to pour a wheat beer though. Only one of them knew how to pour! Seems like a pretty basic skill for a bar keep to have! Menu is pretty limited. Would be nice if they had more 'light eat' options for post diving.... More

The fish is fresh fresh fresh, the beer is cold and the prices are cheap. We had lots of food, tuna, tuna and more tuna. It will be some of the freshest you'll ever have anywhere in the world. They serve Red Rooster Draft Beer, which is pretty good. The atmosphere was nice, right on the water. There's also Wi-Fi,... More

We've dove with Sams Tours on a past trip and they're a solid dive outfit. If you're diving with Sams, I'd say it's convenient to eat at Bottom Time. Essentially Bottom Time Bar & Grill is some tables set up next to the bar at Sams Tours. The atmosphere is mediocre at best. The food was ok, nothing to write... More

I didn't know fish had fingers but the ones at Bottom Time are the absolute best! Light crispy crust. Fish flavor comes thru. Great tarter sauce. I am back in the US now and I'm dreaming of them~

Located at Sam's Tours, this was a convenient place to get a drink and some food after a day of diving. View is good, food was good, nothing spectacular but worth hanging around after you get back from your trip.

Great bar with COLD beer especially après dive. Can't comment on lunch or dinner, but breakfasts were always cooked as ordered and delivered quickly. The self-serve coffee and tea urns with REAL milk were greatly appreciated and a nice touch. View is lovely and the wait and bar staff all friendly and service oriented. It's associated with Sam's Tours, but... More

We were diving with Sam's Tours so Bottom Time had a head start on our business, but I'm not complaining. Their food was as good as any bar I've been in with the possible exception of some of London's best pubs and the English Ale, a local brew, is as good as it comes. Friendly, reasonably priced, convenient, great view.... More

When fish is available the bar and grill with an ocean view cannot be beat! Every day we would eat at Bottom Time -- Cherry is a wonderful waitress and the fish is amazing! Best meal for the dollar! If visiting Palau, you must visit Bottom Time!

This restaurant is on the property of Sam's Tours and we had drinks here every afternoon after diving (basically a full bar). While the food is average, the help could not be nicer. If they have fish (they often don't) try the garlic and lemon butter yellow-fin tuna. It's absolutely delicious! For divers, they have free coffee/tea for before or... More

It's great to have this place close by when you step off the dive boat. It's brilliant to unwind with a cold Red Rooster beer & snack on the yummy calamari or super-fresh sashimi. The staff are friendly - manager Maria remembered me even though it's a year between each of my visits. The burgers are pretty good too &... More
