Food and ambience

Cafe del Mar, in Bocas del Toro, is a restaurant dedicated to use the local ingredients respectfully, by not allowing any type of preserved product in its menu. We make all of our sauces in house, with 100% natural ingredients. We try to combine the modern occidental food, with the caribbean/panamanian flavours from our chilhood. So here you will go from a huge BREAKFAST BURRITO for breakfast to an amazing/tastefull CEVICHE for dinner.

Not only is the food amazing (house made hot sauce*****) but the staff is kind, friendly, and efficient. They a peak English and Spanish with great coffee to boot! Highly recommend a visit while you are in Bocas Town. (Good music tastes too!)

Located in the main streets of Bocas town, yet it is easy to pass by without noticing. A small but nice little ‘café’. The menu offers limited choice, but what they make is fresh and of excellent quality. Very much enjoyed it!

We had a nice dinner here. The burgers were fantastic. Also tried the risotto which was fine but nothing special. Centrally located but not on the water.

Can’t beat $3 for frozen margaritas. Pretty good especially for $3 during happy hour. The Yellow Submarine is petty good, especially for a banana smoothie since I’m not big on bananas in smoothies. The service is great and our waiter is friendly. They have AC...More

Small restaurant with 2 tables outside and 4 inside. Great breakfast with friendly service. Everything was made to order so we had to wait a bit for the food, but well worth it.

The tuna steak burger I had was VERY over cooked, dry and tasteless... and the banana chip things were grim. I was 1 of 3 customers in the restaurant that night and the other 2 were already eating when I arrived. So why did it...More
