We were surprised by the awesome food. We got the steak and a chicken and fig dish and shared. We sat at a table on the sidewalk and enjoyed it.

We went there for dinner and sat outside on the patio, streetside. The menu is on a sandwich board. They offer many different Tapas and 4 or 5 full meals. We went the route of the Tapas. We had Chorizo in a red wine sauce, Shrimp in garlic butter, Tuna Carpaccio, and 'Croquetta' (I think that is the name) which... More

The place is small and right on the street but the food is done right and the prices are fair. Try the steak or the fish

Our first week in Bocas, we visited the Casbah 4 nights! We are enchanted by the sauces Chris creates for his fish filets, chicken breasts, or steak. I wish I knew how to make carrot "spaghetti" the way he does! We never think we have room, but somehow we manage to share a dessert at the end. Fantastic presentation and... More

Just had dinner there last night and loved the food so much I had to rave about it. This place has a small but varied menu. My husband and I ordered the shrimp and the coconut fish, both were delicious, artfully presented, and well portioned. We also did desert (because we're on vacation and calories don't count) and ordered a... More

We tried La Casbah for dinner while recently in Bocas. A small but quaint place on the edge of town. Several evening specials were offered as well as a full menu.
