“Great setting, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 beautiful setting. Portions are a good size too.
Cocktails are cheap in happy hour and each one I tried was delicious. If you just want a drink you can sit at the bar, which opens onto the street. Highly recommended!

“Right on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

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.

“Nice view, good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

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.

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

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!
