We had dinner at Guari Guari, at this place you need a reservation but he will accommodate walk ins. They have a set menu, which includes 3 appetizers a main course and dessert. The owner/ waiter explains each dish as he presents it. Everything was delicious, my husband doesn't eat fish but the main course was tuna steak, and my... More

Fabulous, 5 course, prixt fixe dinner for only $23 pp. Our waiter, Ossi, was so considerate and efficient. Flavor galore. Small cozy place, don't miss it. No sign out front so we almost did.

We first ate here in 2013 and we very happy to see the restaurant still going strong in such a tough industry. We celebrated the new year with a special gourmet meal served by Ozzy and prepared by a creative chef slaving in the kitchen. You must book your reservation in advance. You will be very pleased with the presentation,... More

We were lucky to get last minute reservations to the restaurant and had a great experience. There is limited seating so make sure you have a reservation. The five course menu features three tapas size appetizers, an entree and a dessert. I skipped the first course due to a good allergy and started with the second course. Eggplant capanata was...

We just happened to go to Guari Guari. We were visiting in November 2015 and staying at a nearby bed and breakfast, and another family at the bed and breakfast said that they had heard of a great restaurant that was just within walking distance down the road. It was further than we thought and we had almost given up... More

Reservations are mandatory for this restaurant, as the number of meals is planned considering the number of guests. Other than this, we cannot find any other inconveniences about Guari Guari. The service is friendly and personalized (due to the limited number of people) but also very professional. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The cuisine is international and sophisticated, making... More

11 of us went to dine here 2 nights in a row (it was THAT good). The food, the service, the price... everything was spectacular! If you're in Bocas don't miss this place. We loved every part of the meal, and the owners were some of the kindest people we met in Bocas.
