I highly encourage eating here at Yarisnori! I ate here with family and friends just a few weeks ago. We sat next the water and enjoyed some really delicious local style food. I had the whole crispy snapper with garlic which was very large and priced very nice. We started with patacones filled with shrimp and again the portions were... More

We go there everytime we go to Bocas and go to drago. The price is great for the amount and quality. I love it.

Really good sea food, stuning location. Try the patacones (fried green plantain) rellenos with shrimp.

We waited here for Gundula from Casa Manana to come pick us up for 2 wonderfully blissful massages, and we ordered a little while we waited---the calamari was in a style we were not used to (cooked in garlicky butter, not fried) and the texture was a little strange. The fries were good as were the cold beers and cokes.

We took the bus to Bocas Del Drago to have lunch on the beach. We have been here in Bocas since June and visited many restaurants. This was our worst dining experience we have had while in Panama. It has a very nice venue as you are sitting along side a nice beach at the end of the island. We... More

Excellent location next to the star fish beach, Yarisnori offers a beautiful array of fresh-of course- seafood. I had calamari and octopus and I can say it was delightful (and this is a big call coming from a Spaniard!). Service was fantastic as well and prices reasonable. Would definitely reccommend :)

We visited following our trip to the Starfish beach. Good location (close to the water's edge; close to where the bus picks up back to Bocas del Toro). But at 2.30 they had no calimari, no fish. The lobster-stuffed plantain was, however, very tasty and large enough for two to share (you get 8 pieces). Beer was cold :)

Quick stop off after a bike ride. Loved the 'fish fingers' (dedos?) -super fresh and delicious. Lightly fried, moist with a good dipping sauce. Would return.

Might be pricey, but so are all the restaurants in Bocas (at least when compared to the panamanian standard). I wouldn't risk eating at Playa Estrella since as far as I could see, there was no water there, so I have no idea on how they prepare food... Yarisnori has a great menu, and you oughta try the lobster!

The local bus from Bocas Town to Starfish Beach lets you off right here, so on either end of your trip you can check it out. Milk Shakes to die for, as well as ice cold beer. French fries are good, so we're the crab relents (sp?), seems like I even saw people enjoying lobster !? If you are hungry... More
