We enjoyed The Bocas Wine Bar. It was easy to find on the main street, cozy upstairs location with balcony for people watching, fun friendly atmosphere and tasty food. We had a light dinner sharing a couple appetizers. I'd like to go back for a full meal.

When we left Bocas last year this was starting to be THE place to go. It's a fun place to sit and graze, too. The guy in charge of the food, David, is truly inspired. I would just follow him wherever he goes.

Very nice restaurant, sitting on a balcony on the first floor you have an excellent view on the always bust main street. After having a wine (4,50 a glass), we had our starters; spring rolls, cocos tuna cakes, fried shrimp, cocos curry shrimp. These were all excellent. There wasn't any choice in the mains, you could only order chicken pad... More

We stopped in here one night before dinner for a few drinks. It's a quiet little eclectic bar on the main street. Take the staircase up to get there. Once inside, its warm and inviting with the chairs varying from comfy cozy small arm chairs to bench seats with pillows. Great for sitting around talking. Very chill vibe and if... More

We stepped into The Bocas Wine Bar for a quick drink in the late afternoon on a week night before heading out to dinner. Late May is the low season, so there were only a few folks inside who seemed to be locals. The wine was pretty good for being on a warm, humid Caribbean island. When ordering, we were... More

My family was out walking around in Bocas and ran in to this place. The door was open so we walked up the stairs to have a little wine. We didn't realize that it was 4:20pm and the place didn't open until 5pm. The owner however was there just cleaning and invited us on in to take a see out... More

There is nowhere like this in bocas town and we loved it! Head up the little staircase on the side of the supermarket and the place is a real surprise! Sit on the balcony for the best people watching, you might have to share a table with others but that's what creates the atmosphere here. Food was fantastic, my husband... More

Based on tripadvisor reviews we decided to try this place. It was fun. We sat on the balcony overlooking the main street of Bocas and people watched. We had their Mahi mahi ceviche and their fish special of the day. We tried their Passion Fruit flan and wow....really good. Service was excellent and the owner came by to chat and... More

Loved hanging out above the street and watching the activity go by. Full of ex-pats and lots of friendly conversation.
