Roberto made me the best drink that I’ve had thus far in Panama. Order the 1903- you won’t be sorry! Great atmosphere and wonderful surf lessons as well! We had a great time.

Would go back, we had coffee and toast/eggs. Service was friendly and quick, there's some new construction and it's noisy but the gresy coffee made up for the noise.

Most beer you see people drinking is Balboa or Panama. My server recommended Cusquena when I asked for local beer and I loved it. Also, their burgers are amazing...maybe I am used to USA places not seasoning or maybe their seasoning is just THAT GOOD....More

I went to dinner with a group of 30 students, the service, the staff as well as the food was excellent. I recommend it 100%. The food is very particular (for example the Burger Buga) and different, excellent also for vegetarians and vegans too.

The food is all solid and it's the best service I have had in Bocas. And I have spent over 12 months here in the last few years. Stefan is a great waiter who is attentive and friendly.
