Great food and reasonable prices, very friendly staff who speaks English well (for those whose Spanish isn't the best.) They even have a pool!

Rented some atv's to drive out to Bluffs Beach, which is off the beaten path a couple miles past Paki Point. Was surprised to find this place there. We had a couple drinks, walked the beach a little, but opted to eat elsewhere. This seems to be more of a locals place than Paki Point does. Service was OK, but... More

We ate at the Playa Bluff Beach Restaurant 4-5 times while staying at Playa Bluff Lodge, which is the ecolodge that is right behind the restaurant and pool (where, by the way, I fully recommend that you stay while visiting Bocas del Toro). The atmosphere of the restaurant is very casual and open-air with a bar and beautiful, unique tables... More

My friends and I spent the day here to use the pool and get some food. The pool was lovely and clean, and instead of paying $5 for pool use you can buy food as a substitute. Here were my main issues: - my friend and I shared the seafood plate for two. During one of his mouthfuls he felt... More

We had one meal here, reasonably priced and nice but the portions were very large. Popular with families with children whenever we passed by it.

Well worth taking a cab out to Bluff Beach - for the waves and the view and the beaches and just liming in general. We stopped at the second beach bar for a drink and to soak in the ambiance, then decided to go back here to have lunch and a couple of drinks, on our last day in Bocas.... More

We had attentive service and the drinks were okay, but the menu looked catered to American kids (think chicken fingers, fish sticks, french fries). Not even something like hummus and chips. Each time we went, they were out of fish. We were in Bluff Beach area for three days. Our kids loved it as they got to swim in the... More

We took the local bus with no idea of what. When there we ate a fish dinner that was very good and fresh, within a reasonable .price range. The restaurant table we were at looked at the ocean and beach which this area was very calm and swimming inviting. We will go there again for sure to eat and swim

Five minute further the first entrance to Bluff Beach, there is this restaurant. It's a very nice place, you can eat in the restaurant or drink margaritas seated from the beach.

Amazing beach, not many people, great food, drinks and music. However it is dangerous for swimming due to rip tides, but good for surfing.
