Our (Canadian) tour leader had been to this restaurant before so new that it was good. We had pre-ordered our food which arrived hot and almost simultaneously which is excellent for a group of 18.

Enjoyed our dinner at La Casbah! Nice menu selections along with their daily offerings. We ordered one item off menu and one daily fish entree. Restaurant had been recommended by lodging and we were very pleased! Would definitely agree to recommend to others!

This was recommended to us by another restaurant and it did not disappoint. The gazpacho and mustard steak were phenomenal, as was the sangria. Great, quick, and attentive service throughout the night. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner in Bocas.

Had the tuna carpaccio and smoked salmon asparagus appetizers as well as gazpacho - all deliciously prepared. The casbah salad was awesome and the passion fruit cheesecake lovely as well. Gracious and attentive service as well. Sat at outside tables on a lovely night, enjoying Bocas.
