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.

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!

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.

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!
