Food was just ok and the service was nonexistent. It was great to sit on the water and have a cocktail.

The fried plantains tasted like they were cooked in grease that was too old. The fried fish was equally disgusting (mushy). Not a good restaurant.

We entered this restaurant for a quick ceviche, some chicken, lemonade and fruit shake. We liked the ceviche, the grilled chicken was fine although it smelled a bit of fish and fries were just ok. Lemonade and shake were great. Service quality could be improved, we were almost the only guests there but we had to wait for some time... More

I can't really say I enjoyed the food but I did enjoy the dessert and maracuya margaritas which kept me coming back here everyday to watch the world cup games during my stay in Bocas Town.
