This place is so much fun on Saturday night. Chill- not crazy, but cool people and good live music. Didn’t try the food, but will one of these days.

At first we thought this was just another spot to grab a beer and hang out over the water. They recently got a new chef and she is doing a great job.We got the fish and chips and the Casado de Caribbean Chicken, both were scrumptous. Try the Apple Pie . The name of the Restaurant is Priscilla's Kitchen. Hope it stays

Definitely don't miss the live music on saturday and tuesday nights! If you're around town during the day, keep your eyes open for coupons for half off drinks too. They have some great bands doing solid cover music. A little loud, but we sat on the back patio and the volume was tolerable. There's a cozy feel with decor reminiscent of Cheers in Boston mixed with a bookshop/hostel/game room....everything you would want in a chill getaway. Friendly people. Glad I went and would go again! It's a good option for people who want to go out for a drink in the evening but don't want to party hard.

I was GRANDPAcking in Bocas Town for 1 week.
I popped down to the Book Store a couple of times during Happy Hour.
It has a pleasant over-the-water setting and is one of the few bars in town that has a smoking area (set at the back of the deck over the water).
This place attracts an older crowd of, mainly, expat retirees from the USA.
They put on music a couple of nights each week.
Happy Hour beer is US$1.50. Their Happy Hour ends at 7pm.
I found it to be one of the nicer places around town for the 'older crowd' away from the 'youngster party bars'.

What more could you want in one place?! A wacky variety of books for sale or trade inside of a bar... Well they also have delicious food, a whole bunch of fun games and a gorgeous ocean view! Loved this place! Any time I go back to Bocas I will definitely stop in there.

I stumbled upon this bar during the offseason and it was still full of life. Dave and all of the friends there were very inviting and fun. My friend and I had a blast talking and drinking with them, of course while we played toilet basketball with the toilet mounted on the wall!

All positives apart from the food which takes a long time. They were open with us about this and ended up giving us a free beer to say sorry after 30 mins. We came back 2 days for the shrimp tacos which are to die for.

Staff really friendly and chatty. Decor rustic and cool. Right on the water. Games to play inside including table tennis in the front room.

Recommended for a chilled night with friends when you're not in a rush for food!
