We had a very pleasant lunch at this small restaurant on the main street in Boquete. The fish dishes were particularly good.

Oh that is lovely to hear, & especially from Southern California where they are experts on Fish Tacos! Well, we don't know how you ordered your fish, but we are glad you loved it! Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your good experience! And please come back! We re-open on June 17! Yours truly, Elizabeth

I live in Boquete and by far this is the best for the price and atmosphere. Fish tacos always fresh and to die for. In the last 4 years have never had a bad meal. Owners are on site and very attentive. Make sure you take the gravel path to the right of the main entrance it takes you out back to outdoor eating and a full bar.

I've been away from Boquete for almost 10 months and returned in April. I hadn't been to Big Daddy's for a long time.
The food just keeps getting better & better.
I had a shrimp taco and it was delicious - generous portions
Had one of their famous margaritas pre dinner - what a treat for a lunch!

Thank you for taking the time to recommend us so highly! I too love the Shrimp Tacos. When we have Shrimp in the house, I have one every single day. And those Margaritas...well, there are no rules so next time.. have one for lunch! Thanks for stopping in! Come again. Yours truly, Elizabeth

I go to Panama a few times a year on business, and when in Boquete, Big Daddy's is my goto place. my advice to fellow travelers: start with a margarita. They're fresh and will take the edge off your travels. I haven't gone wrong yet on the menu but the fish tacos are amazing. Owners Elizabeth and Larry always remember me and make sure I leave happy, relaxed and looking forward to my next visit. Whenever it may be. Thank you Big Daddy's! And enjoy your vacation. You all deserve it!

Something has changed or changing. Just not the same. Been going there year after year. Yes, the food is fresh. Burger, Fish Taco's, Fish Sandwich, Chicken Wings, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, Onion Rings, are great. There is something strange happening. Just prior to opening we ran in to the owner Larry, greeted us with a Hello and a Big Smile but went out back on the Covered Porch and Bar Area. Same a usual, but lacking something. Seemed to missing the meet and great, that was always present (Hostess Elizabeth) She could care if anyone was there or not. The staff on the other hand as usual was professional and handled the service. yes it is busy. Not being picky at all, just hopefully this helps BDG get back on track.

Wonderful you enjoyed fresh food, professional service & my partner/co-owner was there to expedite service during a very busy lunch. Good food, service, owner handy -- That's what most folks want in a casual lunch. Thank you. Larry.
