Fabulous multi-course meal! Gazpacho, pork chops out of this world! Every course was better than the last! Charming setting. Do not miss!

Wonderful dining experience all around. The food is excellent. The service perfect. You can not go wrong having a meal here. This restaurant knows how to do things right along with how to prepare foods with flavor. It maybe on the more expensive side for restaurants in Bocas town, $23.00 for a 5 course meal but worth every bit of... More

Every time I visit from the States, I make sure to stop in here for dinner. The creations of food is wonderful, and I have yet to have something that I haven't enjoyed. As long as you make reservations and ensure they are open, then dinner is great. This is a husband/wife run team and they work well together. She... More

I think my expectations were too high. The restaurant is absolutely adorable, and yes - small and intimate. Definitely make reservations if you want to eat here. The service was very good, but I was disappointed with most of the food. Gazpacho started off our 5 course meal, and it was delicious... but things went south from there. Our main... More

Our family of 4 just had the most delicious 5 course pre fix dinner in this wonderful gem of a restaurant a quick taxi from " downtown" Bocas. The German husband ( waiter and host) and his Spanish wife have created a truly delicious dining experience. There are very few tables so make reservations. It was WELL worth the $25/each!!!

One of the best meals I have had anywhere period. You must make a reservation in advance as they buy their food daily depending on how many reservations they have. This is a very small business run by a former couple who understands how to do food right. This is a 5 course set menu each night. It is amazing... More

You have no choice for food!!! But no worries, everything was great for the two of us. Wide ranging, flavorful, beautiful presentation, romantic at night with candlelight and the sound of waves across the street. Reasonably priced for the whole experience, but not inexpensive when added with wine and cab fare. The sole waiter/bartender/owner was a bit harried which detracted... More

Incredible 5 course meal in the middle of tropical paradise! So quaint, romantic, and charming. The service was outstanding and attentive. The food was perfect. This is a restaurant and dining experience you don't want to miss out on when you are in Bocas!

We wanted a special place to celebrate a friend's birthday and Guari Guari was the right choice with its 5 course fixed menu and attentive service. Reservations are recommended, but tables were available without a reservation the night we were there. One of our group was a vegetarian and we called in advance to let the restaurant know. They gladly... More

Amazing food, great service! The best meal in Panama so far. 5 course dinner beginning with 3 appetizer dishes,a main course and finished with a divine dessert. This is a must!
