Went here twice during our stay in Bocas and it was a wonderful dining experience. From the start the owner/chef Chris comes and sits at your table while he passionately explains all the choices he has to offer. Second night there he highly recommended the tuna, not something my husband or I would normally order and we did choose other... More

Our B&B hosts recommended La Casbah to us and it was a good one! We had a wonderful tuna appetizer followed by a main course of beef. It tasted like something from a great culinary city like Brussels or Paris. Probably because that is where English Chef / Proprietor Christopher trained...

After being on Isla Colon for nearly four weeks, I was looking for new places to grab a good meal. I walked by La Casbah nearly every day, but had never stopped in. I looked a couple of times at the sign board, but nothing had caught my attention. One night there were quite a few people there and I... More

We were the only patrons in here tonight, what a shame because the food was outstanding! People visiting this area need to be enlightened with the quality of La Casbah. We started with two different tapas. One tapas was grilled shrimp,asparagus, wine butter sauce, roasted cherry tomatoes. Yum! Full of flavor! Second tapa was grilled chorizo with a red wine... More

Eat the steak. With the mushroom sauce. And the homemade coffee-cake. Just perfect! So so good. (Starters are very nice too) We also got chatting to the owner who is a really nice guy.

Had a fabulous dinner including steak, fish and chicken. The chef also took our order and chatted with us. Highly recommend the tuna carpaccio, Greek chicken and garlic and butter camarones. Sitting outside was a special treat on a perfect evening. Great service and food!

We were surprised by the awesome food. We got the steak and a chicken and fig dish and shared. We sat at a table on the sidewalk and enjoyed it.

We went there for dinner and sat outside on the patio, streetside. The menu is on a sandwich board. They offer many different Tapas and 4 or 5 full meals. We went the route of the Tapas. We had Chorizo in a red wine sauce, Shrimp in garlic butter, Tuna Carpaccio, and 'Croquetta' (I think that is the name) which... More
