Great views

Fun mellow wine bar with a second floor patio overlooking main. The cocktails were delicious the menu is limited but everything we tried was superb. Great stop for wine and a cheese platter or dessert. Try the chocolate mojito.

I was here in February, a great little place with a friendly owner. Nice menu, and good service. A nice place to unwind in evening. Well, it's done. The place was empty and closed. It's a tough business.

We dropped by in the early evening and the place was empty, so there wasn't a great vibe going on. However, they did have a few wines on offer, which makes a change from most places in Bocas. We also had a small plate snack (duck spring rolls), which were quite good, but from memory there wasn't enough choice on... More

Menu had small selection of really nice meals. Seating over street is laid back couches and easy chairs. Owner/ chef was very nice and came out to check on us. Decor reminds me of Venice Beach California hippy chic. Fish was served with nice sauce so that there was plenty of fish and just the right amount of food. Price... More

What a great place. We sat outside overlooking the Main Street for excellent people watching. We ordered the fried mozzerella appetizer which was a stunning presentation served with an amazing balsamic reduction paired with a strawberry sauce. It was a mouthwatering combination. My husband ordered the fish which was excellent. It was served with some sort of mashed potatoes that... More

The Bocas Wine Bar is small but perfectly formed. Chef David has created a surprisingly elegant menu, in a breezy, casual environment. It's not the biggest place, but well worth the visit. The beef fillet with white bean hummus was superb, and my two fussy dining companions really enjoyed their dishes (which I can't recall right now, possibly due to... More

Very nice balcony overlooking the mainstreet but limited number of seats. Inside is also pretty cosy but not as nice as the balcony. Good place to hang out and enjoy a glass of wine. Food is OK but not as good as other options in Bocas Town, so would be a place I visit later in a weeklong stay, not... More

Met some friend here a couple nights while visiting Bocas. Its a great location and good atmosphere. We didn't have any food but the cocktails and bar service was fantastic. The balcony is a comfortable place to enjoy people watching of Bocas. Its one of the better places to visit in Bocas.

This spot is a great little place to grab a drink at night before hitting the docks. Drinks are strong cheap and the bartenders are super nice.
