“Best Fish Taco's EVER!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

On our family vacation to Boquete, we had the great fortune to stumble across Big Daddy's Grill.
What a terrific find!
We had dined at a few local restaurants, but hands down this one is the best!
Great service, it was fast and friendly.
Terrific food, the fish tacos are not to be missed.
The margaritas were fantastic.
Family friendly prices as well.
We can't wait for our next trip to Boquete, where we will definitely be dining at Big Daddy's.

“Best fish!! Great organic salad! Very cozy and good atmosphere, our favourite in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is our favourite in Boquete, all the fish and vegetarian dishes we've tried have been so good! The fish taco is fantastic, especially with a side order of organic salad. The atmosphere is nice, a very cozy place with great colors. Their margaritha is also well worth a try. Also good prices, we really recommend this one

You forgot to mention that BDG attracts the Best People! That was a lovely review and we are really so happy you enjoy the salad...organic, picked daily, double-washed. You know the fish is fresh! Thank you very, very much for the kind and thoughtful words. Yours truly, Elizabeth

Nice expat runs the place. Good food and drink and a porch to enjoy them on. We must have met a dozen people there.

“Great food, great prices, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Big Daddy's is our favorite restaurant in Boquete. The food, service and prices can't be beat. The fish is always fresh (the fish tacos are out of this world) and their fried chicken is the best I've had in Panama. If you're in Boquete, stop by Big Daddy's. You won't be disappointed.

Boy, reviews don't get nicer than this one. Thank you so much for that. What a way to start off my day! The staff will be so happy to read it (I translate them into Spanish so they can see the fruits of their good service!) Larry and I really appreciate the feedback and hope you can return.
