What a surprise. A five course meal for $23. Wine was $12-$18/bottle. Service was impeccable, and the food was absolutely outstanding. A real treasure on this island.

This by far was the best meal we ate in all of Panama. It was a six course meal with desert! i dont want to explain the process to much, but make reservations and try it, as pretty much everything else on the island was sub par.

Coming from Alberta, i have to give them props on there tenderloin, it was cooked to perfection and tasted great.

good job guys, i doubt i will be back to panama but i wish i could eat at your place again.

This was an excellent surprise. The six course meal had a variety of flavor and ingredients. The taxi ride there was $1 per person and the restaurant is the destination. We were not bothered by Mosquitos but other guests used spray which the restaurant provided. The meal in the States would have cost double or triple. The German guy was helpful and super friendly. If you are in Bocas you MUST try this place.

Guari Guari is off the beaten trail in Bocas Town, but worth discovering! There are just a few tables and the menu is fixed so be sure and make a reservation. You'll be treated to 6 delicious courses...all of which are a surprise, if you prefer it that way (we did!).
The host/server is friendly and helpful. They have a great house cocktail and the sangria is delightful. Each course is really a treat, and it’s fun to discover each dish bite by bite alongside your fellow diners. And to boot, the prices are inexpensive. All around-excellent!

Hands down the best meal we had Bocas and probably Panama. 6 courses for $23. Slightly strange combinations of courses: gazpacho, prawn croquete, hummus, etc But excellent service and each course was a real treat
