The service was abysmal. Ordering drinks (in spanish) during happy hour was too difficult for the waitress to comprehend. The waitress was incredibly rude. The food was ok, but all vegetables were cold. One member of our party didn't even receive his food, but it was on the bill. They couldn't make change for my twenty something dollar meal from...

Located in a deck over the caribean beach, it serves very good seafood. Very good ceviches and barracuda fish prepared in a local way (with rice and fried banana). i saw a starfish and a ray meanwhile I was eating... pretty amazing.

... and really cool staff. We had two grande pizzas. At $14-16 each, we had nothing to complain about - the best pizzas we had in 10 days bicycling around Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. The staff were pleasant, cool and helpful, and the atmosphere was lovely. The terrace looks over the harbour, and the music was not too loud... More

Went in the early evening ordered Hawaiian pizza which came burn on the edges nearly nothing for toppings and middle of the road flavor. Slow service which is just typical of Bocas. Ordered Gin and Tonic and the first one tasted suspiciously like just Tonic ordered a second and sure enough just tonic. The waiter very apologetic and it probably... More

The food selection is very good and I returned 2x just to enjoy the langosto and other selections. In the Bocas you can expect great fish at all times but not BEEF. To be expected - no cattle on the islands = no beef on the menu. I look forward to returning soon.

I've been there several times with groups of friends as well as with my boyfriend. The service is very good. We have been lucky enough to have the same server over a span of several months and she remembers our particular requests; poco queso, sin cebolla, etc. She lets me practice my Spanish as her English is excellent. I would... More
