“fantastic and fabulous....fantabulous!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Ive been looking forward to eating here for a while now, last night we finally had the pleasure! The place is well laid out with a beautiful christmas tree in the entrance. Straight away the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The speciality cocktails were absaloutely sublime. The Strawberry margaritas went down a storm. Service was excellent, we were a table of eight, drinks and starters and mains all come out together and they were delcious! Overall a genuine pleasure to eat here, had a wonderful night.. Thankyou lemongrass!!!

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We met one of the owners of this restaurant at the Red Frog beach, so in the evening we decided to try out his restaurant. The food was great, and so was the atmosphere and the very kind personnel. Actually, we found it that good we decided to have dinner on our last night on Bocas again at The Lemongrass. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Bocas!

We visited for lunch and were treated to a great meal in addition to a wonderful conversation with the owner Lisa. Our server was attentive and our food was fresh and timely. We will definitely return on our next trip to Bocas.

“Game-changers: the best restaurant in Bocas town!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

During our short stay at Bocas we had dinner twice at The Lemongrass: they serve great Asian food. It tastes delicious; they know how to prepare a good meal. The food is fresh and tastefull (tip: order tuna or the seafood starter!). The owners are Dutch: very nice and helpfull people, but most important they are game-changers for the local restaurants at Bocas. They serve outstanding delicious foods, with the best service in town and a great view. There's no escape: you definitly should try this!!

“Don't miss the samosas!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Lemongrass does GREAT seafood - with an Asian flair - but honestly - I could make an entire meal out of their samosas. These folks catered my wedding and were WONDERFUL to work with. The food was amazing, fresh and always reasonably priced.
