Good enough we went back multiple times.

Very friendly staff. Great outdoor seating over the water. The food was always pretty good. Close to everything in town center.

Not sure why I like pulpo so much but they make a very good, if slightly overcooked, pulpo Estillo Creole with a passion fruit margarita. And the dining area overlooks the Caribbean!

We went for a late afternoon drink to the restaurant of Bocas del Toro Hotel. As in so many places in Bocas, happy hour on cocktails extends quite late, so we also benefited from that. Sitting area at the back is nice with a good view on all that happens with loading and unloading of all small transfer ships. We... More

You MUST try the Maracuya (Passion Fruit) Margarita! My oh My is it good!! The seafood platter which included lobster, fish, calamari, octopus and prawns was fabulous and watching the sunset over the ocean made it that more special :) Service was excellent and the special touch of candles on each table in the evening was nice.

The Ceviche was recommended by the waiter and was very good. Finished before my camera was ready. The local shrimp in garlic was a very small portion and fairly tasty. I also had ice cold sangria which tasted like fizzy grape juice but half an hour later I was rather woozy. Don't touch the homemade pepper sauce unless you know... More
