Dear Alfredo, Thanks for sharing your experience. We're pleased you enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere. We're famous for our Maracuya Margarita!

We had a late lunch here while in Bocas Town. The location is great with the deck over the water. The food was nice enough. There are photos on the walls of the early days of Bocas to give you a sense of the history.More

Hello Ohiowanderer, Thanks for mentioning the decor. It's something not often brought up in reviews. Bocas del Toro has an interesting history, and the wall photos bring back that bygone era. People are so mesmerized by the ocean view that they often overlook the great...More

Shout out to Hennessy for being a great waitress! The food is great, fresh & reasonable. The drinks are great & awesome during happy hour 5pm - 7pm. I got pescado del día three days in roll & I'm very picky. Delicious! 👍🏽

Had breakfast here twice. Nice ambience, good food, free coffee, well priced, and right on the water. Worth at least one visit, probably more.

A nice peaceful place for lunch. Food was good, prices were reasonable. Cheap plastic chairs want to catch in the floorboards of the dock planking.

Glad you enjoyed a lovely and tranquil lunch. We're pleased you enjoyed the food and found the prices fair. Good point regarding the deck floor boards, they can be tricky.

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.

Reviewed 18 February 2017

It started with a dirty table cloth that I had to ask to be changed. Then there was the warm white wine. Then came the mushy, tasteless, inedible fish. The good news: friendly staff, nice setting. But don't go.More
