The food was exceptional. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. We walked over from next door and Peter and Reynaldo were gracious taking to and from the restaurant to the pathway back to where we were staying. Marcus was very attentive with everyone, visiting all the tables. Good wine list.

The restaurant is nice, comfortable and has good food. The service is good, but I think they just hired some new staff so this time wasn't as good as last time. The views are lovely and the drinks good.

My wife and I were staying in a private home nearby and were interested in a restaurant cooked meal for my birthday. The food here is solid and the service is friendly for Panama. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a bit of civilization as it's pretty much the only game in town.

My husband took me here for an early Valentines dinner. I had the filet but did need to send it back to be cooked more. The food was excellent my husband liked his as well. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the staff was very nice. Management excellent!

We were fortunate to have such a lovely dining room to compliment our stay at the resort. All meals were excellent. And we were happy to enjoy their fresh lobster one night.

We only ate here for lunch, but the menu was very limited with mostly dinner options. Our very average burger was $12, and took an hour to reach our table because the restaurant was "slammed" with a table of 8 people. The grounds are very nice and if you are OK paying top dollar I am sure this would be... More

We walked up the long flight of steep stairs from the Seagull Cove resort to the Bocas del Mar resort for a change in restaurant. If you do this be very careful walking up and down the stairs. They are extremely steep. We were curious about the neighboring hotel since we could see it is a larger establishment. The resort... More

We enjoyed the food and the view very much. Breakfast included tropical fruits, the lunch menu had good salads and ceviche and we generally chose the catch of the day for dinner. My favourite: prawns in garlic sauce.
