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.

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
