Thank you Ba8ydriver. Sometimes the classics can't be beat, and enjoying these dishes with a local twist is always special. Johnny bread is a staple in the islands of Bocas, and of course fresh fish is always delish.

I chose this restaurant because I wanted a view of the water, but I would return for the food and service. The menu had a nice variety and my food was well-prepared for a reasonable price.
