Ok, so they were the ONLY fish tacos I've had in Boquete, but the fish was tasty, moist and well prepared and the salads and rice and beans were also delicious and fresh tasting. Damn good margueritas too! I wasn't crazy about the guacamole (didn't seem to have much avocado?). The only reason this got 4 instead of 5 stars - we clearly ordered FISH fingers for our kids and were served CHICKEN fingers. The only explanation we got was "well, I heard you say chicken". Other than that - great place for the whole family to eat.

Thank you for the nice review. (BTW..the sauce didn't taste like Guacamole simply because...well, it's NOT Guacamole! It's a special, Avacado (90%)-Chipotle sauce, intended to spread inside the tacos). It's disheartening to learnt there was a misunderstanding with your order. It is our policy to correct that to your satisfaction & we're truly sorry that didn't happen. We sometimes do have language issues. If you can return, we would like to give you some fish fingers! Thank you, again. Sincerely, Mrs. Big Daddy

Locate in downtown Boquete, this American owned restaurant offers large portions and tasty margaritas. The shrimp tacos brought us back more than once.

Oh thank you. Larry is fussy about shrimp, so we don't always have it. We are so glad it was available when you were here! Thanks for taking the time to write. Yours truly, Elizabeth & Larry

We ate at Big Daddy's twice. The fish and shrimp tacos were great! Love the black beans and rice. We also had a grilled fish sandwich and it was excellent. Portions are enough for 2. The margaritas are also very good. The little porch area in back is really nice and a great place to relax over a terrific meal.

We live for reviews like yours. Thank you! If you can return, I'd suggest you try one of Larry's & my favorites: the Fish Sandwich -- but Fried! Ok it's a tad sinful ... but delicious! The black beans are made daily, on premise (never from a can!) & we love them too. Thank you for the super positive review! We so appreciate that! xo Mrs. Big Daddy

Simple menu with good and fresh ingredients. We enjoyed the simplicity and the honesty of the two meals we had there. We will return.

I didn't expect much from this place, as it looked very informal (a nice way of saying run down). But the food was excellent! My wife and I both had fish tacos and they were among the best we've had. It's reasonably priced and we were both very happy with it.

Yay! You noticed. We purchase all the fish directly -- and whole -- from the fishermen and we are glad you could appreciate it's freshness. Thank you for writing in and for your lovely comments. Yours, Elizabeth
