Beautiful restaurant on the water, great vege food and HIGH SPEED wifi!!!!

We had great vegetarian pasta and bruschetta here, and BY FAR the fastest internet we've found anywhere in Panama! Got work done quickly and was free to play in beautiful Bocas. I know it's not hip to be online while travelling but if - like me - you do have to occasionally, this is the place to... read more

When Eating at Hotel Bocas del Toro's restaurant you have a choice of sitting outdoors with a great water view or indoors in an intimate setting. I had the seafood salad and it was expertly cooked and prepared and a much larger serving size than I expected for the price. In other words it was a great delicious value of... More

The breakfast was great. We just arrived in Bocas and headed right to Hotel Bocas del Toro. You get a great view of the activity of the waterfront. The breakfast is a buffet

We ate here for dinner. The steaks were tough. The service was extremely slow. Fortunately the beer was ice cold and the ambiance was nice. We will not return to this restaurant.

After two weeks of travel in Central American, we hit the worst restaurant so far - and I am sure for the rest of the trip. Very poor food, bad service and prices above averge for the area. I ordered a Filet Mignon, and I was already worried, when it was covered with undercooked bacon - I was simply not... More

What a cool town. This was the first place we got to eat on arrival after a long boat ride. High quality food, great presentation and distinctly central American vibe. I recommend this place for the freshest fish you'll find. Nice service and will come back again this week!

After a miserable dinner at El Pirata down the street the night before, we tried breakfast here. Very good. We came back for dinner that night. Excellent. The fish were huge and cooked well. The meat was tasty. We came back here for almost all our meals during the visit. Would return to and refer this restaurant any time.

I stayed a week in Bocas del Toro, visited this place for drinks a few times, dinner twice and recommended it to our roommates! As with most places on the island meals are more expensive than mainland Panama, but the food was delicious! The restaurant has an outside deck right on the sea, with tea lights which makes for a...

The bar is on the street side, but if you walk past to the back the restaurant is right on the water. It is among several all in a row there. They do not rush you at all. If you want to sit and talk over your food, you can do so.
