Lili's is a great place for breakfast their spiced pancakes are delicious. Lili is a fun, delightful lady with a delicious sauce and great food. However when Lili goes on vacation which she does relatively often her daughter takes over and service goes downhill as well as the food. If they don't cook something as you had asked when placing your order they get rather rude and don't quite care to fix it.

Somedays you can be sitting in the dock waiting for service for up to 30 mins while they happily chat in the kitchen.
I would love it if they put a sign advertising when Lili is back in town.

Over rated for its "healthy " choices and "home made" bread. Place has awful (if you can even call it) service. Quantity of my ginger-fish was surprisingly little and I'm not a big eater by any standards. For $14 I'd have expected at least enough food to fill my tummy. The food took over an hour after placing the order and there were only 3 tables with patrons.

It overlooks the view of islands and sea and in fact most of the restaurant is on a long dock, which is exactly what you want. The homemade bread and food is tasty as unique. Unfortunately you may get your main dish a half hour after you order and your sides even later than that. But in Bocas, it's part of the charm you come for

You must go here at least once when you are in Bocas. They get you your coffee right away and it is included with what you order. Great water views and service.

The first time we went here we sat on the dock and noone came. We werent sure if they were open or not so we left. Came back the next morning and finally had service after about 15 minutes. They only came out because another couple had walked by and they noticed them. 2 coffees, fruit salad, spanish omolete and smoked eggs. Service was very poor. The price, not too bad at $18.
