Had lunch and it was very ordinary. Even French fries blah. But it is very clean and well decorated and service was good. So maybe just on off day for kitchen.

We had a great time with a late lunch and wonderful drinks. The restaurant is waterfront with beautiful views and we couldn't have had better service! It was not our first time there nor our last. Thank you again for the great experience!

We were first taken here by a local for passion fruit Margaritas and had such a good experience, and drink, we came back almost every day of our trip. The breakfast plates were great and I recommend the Bocas Burger , it comes on a Johnny cake with plantains. A Pina Colada here is especially nice on the restaurant's back... More

We stopped our walking, exploring for an snack and the water scene was pleasant. A good view of how the water taxi's move. This was a wonderful insight of island living.

Beautiful location, the food was good. I had the lobster and my friend had the shrimp. (the shrimp are really small in Bocas, but good) The side dishes were really good also. Service is slow, but it is everywhere in Panama, we just sat back and looked at the water while enjoying a Mojito, it doesn't get much better than... More

Talk about quality dining. If you love the ocean like I do, you will appreciate sitting right on the dock and having your meal over the waves. The food is excellent , and the beers are cold. What else could you ask for?

People in charge of the dinning room were slow, and careless. In the morning of my second breakfast, I had to wait for a clean table, eventhough there were a lot of tables availabe. The problem was that the woman in charge of cleaning up the table for the guest, was not motivated at all to do her work. She... More

Thank you for your comments and your experience at our waterfront restaurant was unfortunate. We are working with the restaurant staff as a result of your comments. Though service is indicatively slow in the Caribbean, we will evaluate the difference of carelessness and lazy. We offer complimentary coffee with breakfast, as many cups as one wishes. Since we do not... More
