The Hummingbird Restaurant


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Surrounded by tropical gardens and with ocean views from the bar, our restaurant is located on stunning Bluff Beach. Our dinner menus reflect what is fresh and in season, consisting of our take on international classics, such as Thai spiced filet mignon and sesame crusted tuna. Full bar and international wine selection. From 4:00 - 6:00 we have happy hour, special prices on select drinks and nibbles. MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY we have our dinner menu, 6:00 - 8:30 SATURDAY we have an Argentinian BBQ all day. SUNDAY is Hummingburger Day! Build your own burger with choice of beef, chicken, fish or veg and then choose all the toppings and sides! There is a shuttle bus that runs from the center of town

Staying down the road at Turtle Beach house we were recommended the Hummingbird for a great dinner for our group of 10. They took a last minute reservation and couldn't have been more hospitable. Great food and drinks, awesome owners and cool ambience, GO!

We ate at Hummingbird several times during our time in Bluff Beach. We enjoyed the wonderful food (including the Argentinian night!) and surroundings. On our first evening in Bocas, we even got to see the little red eyed frogs by the pool!
