“beer sun n surf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

I loved it, really nice for hanging out, relax, get sun and catching some waves. I've been there when it wasn't wave season and it's the best surfspot in bocas at this time, it's also where all the local surfers go to. the restaurant is perfect for me, prices are good for that delicious food you get there, and it's even better with that chilled atmosphere :)

“The best place in town to sip on coffee, eat, surf and sun yourself!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Can't go wrong! This was our "slow day" outings, we'd ride our bikes 2.5 km across road and sand and sit and read all day, watch some surfers and have lunch! Yum! As long as you purchase from the restaurant your free to spend some time relaxing in their chairs! Their cappuccino's are delicious with shaved local cocoa on top! Yum! Our food was really tasty and somewhat healthy, chicken Thai wrap with salad and a Tuna sandwich! Simple, good and as expensive as the rest of the restaurant meals in or near Bocas!

“Great spot to kick it and chill!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

I rented a house right next to Paki Point last week and ate and chilled here a few times on my vacation. The place is a real gem so far from the rest of town. Situated right on the beach and in front of Paunch surf break the location couldn't be better. I most enjoyed the fish of the day which was local snapper with a large fresh salad, all for 9 dollars. The espresso and ceviche were also enjoyed and we used the free wifi many times. Hammocks, cabanas and lounge chairs are everywhere to relax and watch the surf from. My only warning would be to stay away from the pizza which we found to be unedible. Stangely pizza is very popular all over the restaurants in Bocas and by the end of the trip we were calling it 'Pizza del toro'. I would recommend all other food as the pizza was No Bueno every where we tried it.

“super chill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Really chill place to hang out right on the beach. The food is average, but the location is what makes it. You can buy a small meal and a beer and then just sit on a big couch in the sun and watch the surfers all day. Very relaxing, and I make sure to do it every time I come into town. Costs about $3/person to take a taxi in from Bocas town, or you can try to hitchhike with people as they are going to and from Bluff beach.
