Great food and high speed internet connection in the heart of the action in Bocas del Toro. Staff was good.

Nice place on the water to have some afternoon drinks! We stopped by for some live music and drinks to get out of the heat - good location!

Average about sums it up. Small portions, not a lot of flavor. Bit pricey for the portion size. Not highly recommended. The veiw was the only plus.

Very nice restaurant right on the water for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very reasonable prices. Don't be in a hurry anywhere in Panama. Remember the good old days when you could take as much time as you want to chitchat, well it's like that everywhere...More
