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.

We had dinner here on our first night in Bocas and were pleasantly surprised with how delicious the food was. Great atmosphere, kind staff. The owner even came out to talk with us about our meal which I was very impressed with. We had a shot with him for dessert. Great place, will definitely be back.

We had dinner here recently and enjoyed it so much we went back the next evening for a glass of wine on the patio. We chose the steak with potato purée and broccoli. The meal was very good and reasonably priced. Service was efficient and friendly. The patio is lovely, nice music, good wine selection.

Oh my gawd! The spring rolls were fantastic! The Thai dipping sauce was complimentary to the chicken and it was flavorful! The beef fillet (ask for it medium rare) was sumptuous! I highly recommend this place! The owner is super cool and the restaurant has an amazing vibe. Plus - who doesn't want a glass of wine to accompany their... More
