“Amazing food, great drinks, and the most attentive staff in Bocas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Raw Fusion, formally known as Raw, has an amazing variety offering not only sushi, but also tasty Caribbean inspired dishes as well. Raw Fusion has the class of a city restaurant, but in the beautiful setting of Bocas Del Toro. I believe it to have the best salad on the island, known as the dried mango almond salad, as well as delicious creative sushi, ceviche and noodle dishes. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu here, even if you are drinking your dinner, as they have an extensive list of amazing cocktails!

“Still the same great RAW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Was surprised that RAW Fusion had few reviews until I learned that because they changed the Sushi to Fusion they had to start all over again here. They may have adjusted the name to reflect their approach to the fusion of traditional sushi to vibrant tastes of the Carribean coast but they are still the same creative kitchen and attentive staff that have been bringing the best to Bocas for over two years.
I wrote my first review of RAW back in 2011-12 and ranted on about the vegetarian options in a seafood based cuisine style. I continue to rant in 2014 about what they can put before me for a meal without seafood, poultry or meat. Options for Whiney eaters like me are available in both starters and mains.
The Fusion part is seen in the quality and presentation and without the usual "gee it looks really nice but I should have ordered two". They have 8 piece sushi rolls and during Happy Hour from 4-6 they do $5 snacks and rolls without losing one piece of the 8 piece roll.
I must stop as I'm going for ranting to gushing and I haven't even talked about the incredible on the water location. Check it out yourself.
Zenbioi...

“I would expect more Good reviews, maybe this place just opened ???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Wife and I enjoyed this place on a Sunday, one of the few restaurants open that day ???
In spite of a party going on here, the sushi roller still got everyone else their food, Thank You Jesus, 'cause I was hungry...
We got in prior to 6PM so we ordered off the Happy Hour menu. Sucked down two Nice rum drinks each, plus four five dollar small plates.
Crispy chicken, piled up into a small pyramid, tasty, but kept Sliding off the chop sticks...
California rolls;
Ceviche, which had avocado mixed in with it, and served with nice hard pita chips, making it easy to scoop and enjoy, then the forth was my fav, again, rolls, but with tofu and sweet plantains, rolled in a sweet lettuce, served with a spicy sweet and sour sauce, really nice.
Place was loaded up with good looking people, servers were attentive, I was impressed.
They should sell T Shirts, come on...with a name like Raw Fusion !?
Hey, you also have a small dock to sit on, so there are water views.
Take a chance, you'll enjoy it, Salida1048

“Superb Seaside Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Was skeptical about eating raw sushi in grimy Bocas but decided to take a chance and give them the benefit of their great reviews. Walk past the hipsters lounging around the front bar and you will find a charming, intimate patio (pier) right on the water. Rolls were innovative and plated perfectly, our favorite was the crispy mahi mahi roll. Good value and selection for pricey Bocas.
