Ate twice at restaurant and everything was very good. Very friendly waitress. Get their early because some of best items can be gone. We had great lamb appetizer and lobster dinner. Both were gone an hour later.

They made nice vegetarian meal of steamed veggies and rice. Avoid the spinach which was made in oil with lots of salt.

Weirdly they seem to be closed on Saturday night. Check before you go. Reservation is good idea.

We liked this restaurant so much we went to it twice. The ceviche was the best we have had in Panama. The passion fruit Creme brûlée is to die for. Be sure and order the Creme Brûlée early as they run out. The service was extremely friendly and fast

Went on a friends recommendation, and the two of us shared two appetizers--Mahi mahi ceviche and tuna cakes with katuk and pepper sauce--and a main dish--whole red snapper with criolla sauce.

The service was exceptional and the food better. Funky little location at the end of town on a pier over the water, but really focusing on the most important parts of the dining experience. We'd go back, but we're only in Bocas Town for a day.
