I had the pleasure of dinning at Island Plantation during my stay at Bluff Beach. The atmosphere is really nice and tranquil. The food is also great.

This restaurant is outside of bocas town but is very good. Their wood fired pizza was great and they have really good mixed drinks. You can enjoy your food and drink right on the beach! Thanks Brian

We did not dine at the restaurant but had their margherita pizza on 3 different occasions & it was delicious each time. Great seating in the sand on the beach with a little pop up bar.

We stayed down the road at Bluff Beach Retreat (fantastic) and because they don't have a restaurant the kind owner, Ron, sent us to Island Plantation for dinner. What memorable, elegant and scrumptious food! The wait staff are so sweet, friendly and skilled; we always felt so welcomed when we visited...multiple times:) They are the only place in the area...

We had 2 meals during our recent stay on Playa Bluff and both were wonderful. Delicious food beautifully presented by gracious, attentive servers. So nice to partake of all the delicious local produce and seafood.

Enjoyed dinner and lunch (they have a new pizza oven that bakes crispy, authentic pies) and were taken care of by Chris and Henry, not to mention Victoria who served us delicious cocktails on the beach.
