Reviewed April 24, 2012

Great setting in the water on an old Tuna trawler, the perfect watering hole for Bocas and the Fish and Chips are the best in town

“Improptu Live Music st The Riptide”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

It was a cute place, limited food choices, but we happened to get there as some American musicians who were from different parts of the county met and did an improptu jam session. They were wonderful and really made the evening for us. They had been sailing around for the day and had hit several other bars and were half in the bag, but really good. We tracked them down at a different restaurant on that places open mic night.

“Great Hang-out”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

The RipTide Bar and Grill (which is a docked boat) is a blast, particularly at happy hour. You will meet many interesting and friendly people here (mostly ex pats) that like to have a good time. The bartenders and servers here are also super friendly and efficient. Be sure to eat the fish sandwich - its the best in Bocas.
