nice place that offers great location in town and good views. There is always a fresh supply of new travelers swapping stories and travel tips. sometimes there is local art featured and its lots of fun.

Had a late dinner here with my boyfriend and we loved it! The food was great. I had the stuffed chicken over mash, and he had the special which was a fish taco. The service was friendly and quick. Total price for dinner and two glasses of wine was just under 30$. The price range on trip advisor says $3-$9,... More

We tried Natural Mystic after reading some nice reviews on tripadvisor. We were pretty disappointed. The view was nice from the balcony but the food was mediocre at best. My wife ordered the coconut snapper which turned out to be mahi mahi and was supposed to come with garlic mashed potatoes but we were told they had to substitute rice.... More

Eating up on their balcony gives you a nice view of the nightlife below. We all tried their specialty which was a fish called Lenguado (which is a flatfish) in a coconut sauce. It was very rich, and although it was tasty, it was too sweet for our tastes. The service was good, I think it was the manager or... More

One of the best meals in Bocas. I had a curry dish and my husband and a burger and lots of cheap beer! We sat on the balcony in the breeze and watched the action down below. Great customer service on top of it.

Two things you have to order from Natural Mystic: Coconut fish and Mystic chicken. There are many places on the island that serve a coconut fish type dish, and Natural Mystic definitely has the best version. The chicken might be spicy for some (red pepper flakes are involved) but I thought it was the perfect amount of heat. You can't... More

Unfortunatelly the service was very slow, we waited 1 hr until they brought our food, which by the way was nothing special. They have few plates, that is why we thought that it wont take long The people that work there is very friendly, but... More

We sat outside on the veranda with a beautiful view on comfy benches. The lighting and seating of the restaurant gives it a lounge atmosphere. We had the humus and that tasted so yummy, and being jewish i know what good humus should taste like! Then came the Mystic Chicken..... OMG we were in heaven.... the dish was beautiful to... More

We ate at Natural Mystic on our last night in Bocas. I love the ambiance of this place, nice lighting, comfy seating, lounge atmosphere, and you can sit on the balcony if you want to people watch. My boyfriend and I both love spicy food, there was a very nice girl working and she recommended the Mystic Chicken. I wish... More
