“Great fish tacos!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint! Great margaritas and some of the world's best fish tacos. Portions are large and the price tag was very reasonable (<$10us)

“Awesome Margaritas!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We had a fabulous dinner here and would happily go back.

It is clean, central and easy to find.

The kids loved their food as did we! Usually either the kids food is good or the adult food - rarely both! we all left satisfied...my fish tacos were excellent and the kids loved their nuggets, but real highlights were the Margaritas with chilli salt - YUMMO!

The back terrace was great too as we could relax and make a bit of noise without worrying about the neighbouring tables (who were also happily making their own noise!)

Thanks for having us!

So happy the kids were happy (those chicken nuggets are cut fresh, right here) and better yet that mom and dad were diggin'' on the margaritas! We have been known to enjoy a few ourselves! Thank you! Yours, Elizabeth

A few local friends recommended this spot for dinner, and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed the house margaritas and fish tacos. The owner provides great entertainment with stories of his travels

We are truly glad we didn't disappoint and that Big Daddy himself was able to provide some entertainment... he's graveled, he knows his fish and he sure has some great tales, for sure! Thank you for writing in... we hope you can return! Yours, Elizabeth

“Delicioso!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

In general, we did not find the Panama food tasty, BUT this place was awesome! The fish tacos were fresh and flavorful, and the margaritas were great. The atmosphere is beautiful, with the outdoor seating area covered in flora and fauna (well, chickens). We loved it!

“Yum”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Tell you what, 'fish tacos' never really sounded too appealing to me before but after these reviews I thought I ought to give them a try. They were delicious, the fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned and came with 3 little pots of accompaniments to add. Good portion size and a delicious lemonade.. I think we'll be back soon :)

Thank you very much for the lovely review. I myself didn't think the idea of a fish taco was appealing, until I tried one of our own! Then I too was hooked! We do you you can return and thank you once again. Yorus, Elizabeth
