We enjoyed Fish and Chips on a floating boat aptly named the Riptide in Bocas Town, with a great view across the water. There were a few other choices from the menu we would have preferred but they were out. Drinks/Service very prompt. Unfortunately the crowd on the 2nd floor were card playing and every bad hand was commented in. The place is for sale so not sure if that accounted for the lack of consideration in the availability of food items and noisiness.

Great place to stop and have a cold beer right on the water. There is always a breeze and the view is spectacular. You can jump in for a swim if you want. The food is good and we especially liked the ceviche and the lightly deep fried pineapple and bacon appetizers.

Finally a place where you can get real Panamanian food. The service is great, very friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. The location is right on the water, with a very nice view

A novel experience eating on a boat. Pub food, a lot of drinking but we had really good fish and chips. if you want a change from the usual places in Bocas this is a fun place for lunch or dinner.
