We needed a break from the rain & popped in for lunch. Steak tacos were delicious - enjoyed their hot sauce. Pineapple smoothie was sweet & yummy. Friendly staff.

We were going back from Isla Colon to Panama city when we stopped by in Hungry Monkey. We took tuna tacos and vegie sandwiches for takeaway which were very good :)

Prices look good until you see the portions. Which are really tiny. Plus of course the popular tourist scam with not including the tax in the price (like other places do). Food was OK, but after lunch I was leaving Hungry Monkey quite hungry.

Its fresh, vibrant, tasty and oh so well priced. I could have the tacos here every day for lunch. Hungry Monkey fits the Bocas vibe really well, just go see for yourself, its great!

Awesome fish tacos, I had the tuna and fish tacos and they were amazing. Fresh and healthy. But the food does take a long time so be prepared for that.
