La Casbah is located a little bit outside the tourist center but still in walking distance! We ate there due to a recommendation by a friend living in Bocas! We tried gazpacho, chicken rosemary, vegetable plate and chocolate cake for dessert! Everything was really delicious!

We were lucky to find this great restaurant on our very first evening in Bocas Town. Very creative and inventive cuisine, fine dining with a wonderful Mediterranean flavour. We'll be back before our 10-day stay on the island is over.
