Great empanadas, cheap food

I have visited this grill a couple of times over several trips to Bocas town. They have free WiFi which is great if you are in need for communication. We tried their fresh fruit milkshakes. It is great they were fresh fruit but they were very diluted in milk so for a $3 price it was expensive. You... read more

Please don't go there! Way too overpriced for such a disgusting food, useless service. I had a hot dog, it was very tiny and the bun was unedible, I guess three days old. My husband had a burger with fries. The meat was ok, but the bun same as mine. French fries were disgusting made in a week old oil... More

I had the chicken and plaintain for $4. Delicious! Unfortunately, the breakfast sandwich I ordered on my next visit wasn't good. The "sausage" was a mystery meat similar to a "meat" hot dog.

I do not recommend this place. The food is below average but the prices are not. After eating a grilled cheese sandwich (which was like 2 bites) we ended up eating breakfast at another place. The atmosphere is everything but nice and the waitress was very unfriendly.

Hate to say I ate here more than I wanted, my son and I were on a month long visit to Panama and Costa Rica and he was missing American food. This place served up what he wanted and it was cheap. It wasn't the best but it was not bad and the the prices were more than fare. The... More

Fast Food type of food and atmosphere. Really high prices for terrible quality. I got breakfast here over New Years break. I would never recommend this place to anybody, especially since there are so many better options on the island with the same or cheaper prices.

The service here is super quick and friendly. I like that they have an English menu as well as Spanish, helps with your translations. This was mainly a quick stop dessert place for us and we haven't been disappointed. Definitely a place to check out

This fast food restaurant isn't worth at all the unbelievable high prices, not to mention how small the plates are. No service, food is Ok minus, the atmosphere is lame. Not worth any dime, and it costs plenty of dimes. Recommending to stay away.

This is a great place to sit, eat empanadas, sip on fresh fruit smoothie, and use the internet. Many locals and local expats come here in the morning.
