We loved this restaurant. At first glance of the restaurant I was a little unsure but they changed my mind! We had a seat outdoors along the road. We ordered our drinks and right after noticed a guy running out from the kitchen to the nearby store. He was headed to get some cranberry juice for my husband's drink. Now... More

Stayed in Bocas for a week. Our dinner at La Casbah was, hands down, the best meal we had. Fresh fish, bacon-wrapped prawns, sangria... I wanna go back! Bravo!

We have been to Bocas three times in the past year and a half, this place is NEVER open! So we jumped at the chance to eat there when it was open the other night. Great service and good wine. My friend and I both ordered the chicken curry special with salad and rice. We both got extremely ill later... More

After reading some very positive reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. We arrived early and there were few people eating there. The menu was like missing a page and had few options, with nothing vegan and two vegetarian options - but that's common. I asked the vegetarian option without the cheese, but when I... More

You won't be disappointed with anything you order here. Food is incredibly well prepared and so tasty - everything! The night we dined, there was live entertainment and it just added to the total experience.

Best meals we had during our time in Bocas (we dined there twice), the service was terrific. The sangria hit the spot, other people we met also have good things to say about choices on the menu but for us the tuna was the draw.

I have eaten here three times, and have been blown away every time. The food here is fresh and flavorful, and the manager goes out of his way to make sure you have a perfect experience. Truly a can't be missed experience.

We came to La Casbah on the recommendation of friends, interesting little place! We sat at a table outdoors, we were practically on the road , which was fine, it reminded me of Rome. We enjoyed our food very much, we did find it a tad pricey for what we got , but it was still delicious ! The owner... More
