The food was well prepared and tasted good. The drinks tho could have been better and the service was i guess decent if we view it with Bocas eyes.

This a nice casual restaurant with friendly staff and it has a decent menu selection. I really enjoyed my curry, lots of flavour. Service was a little slow but a nice place to check out away from the main street.

This restaurant have the best sunset view in Bocas. You need to be there around 6 pm to see the fantastic sunset. Thereafter you can enjoy a super dinner. The restaurant has also live music.

If you visit Bocas town you should have this restaurant on top of your list of places to eat. Just a 100 metres outside of the main town, don't be put off by the declining nature of its surroundings as its safe to walk there...More
