Loved this place and sure to be a visitor whenever I'm in town. Delicious lobster, happy regulars, solid service and strong ownership have made this a long-running establishment in the Bocas scene.

El Ultimo is the perfect spot to dine in Bocas: amazing sunsets, lovely breezes, peaceful.... and the food is excellent. All of it. I had a wedding party of 15 here for dinner on our first night in town and it was just wonderful. Owner/Chef Katherine worked with me on a menu and the staff were fantastic. Don't miss it!

Had the seared tuna, wife had the shrimp. Wouldn't give it an OMG, like other reviewers have only because the service was just okay. Overall you're going to enioy eating there, if you can catch the waiter's attention. That aside, everyone is very friendly

The food here was fresh and extremely tasty. The seared tuna I had here could give all the 5 star restaurants in America a run for their money. The wait staff was extremely nice and attentive, a unique trait in the town of Bocas.
