Best in Town

Of all the restaurants we ate at in Bocas, this was our favorite. (The food is on par with the rest of strip and fellow American’s would agree that the service is lacking) but the warm reception we got by the hostess is what made us happy.

Liked this place - very, very good breakfast! It's nice, on the water, and they don't push you out. We had 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. It was probably our favorite on that stretch of Calle 2/Main street

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

The food here is nothing to complain about. It isn't anything over the top amazing but it certainly wasn't anywhere near bad! Prices are good & the drink prices are amazing especially during their happy hour! We had both breakfast & dinner there & we left satisfied each time. Great location as you can sit on the deck looking out... More

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.

The food is panamenian style mostly. I never had anything bad there. Also the bartender will make you a chocolate milk shake from scratch.

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
