We came here for an early dinner as their website said they were open at 5pm, and we had a hungry 2-Year old with us. Arrived to be told the kitchen would open at 6. They were very nice and made the little one chicken fingers and mashed potatoes while we waited for the restaurant to officially open. I’m vegan and had read that they could accommodate me, which they did with tempura broccoli, coconut rice and beet purée. Very tasty, although a bit greasy, and as always a bit of protein would have been nice. My friend had the lobster risotto which she raves over. A bit pricey for Bocas, but worth it.

We had a good evening, nice waterside location and very nice staff.
The only downside was the live music, whilst very professional, it was a little too loud for a restaurant.

After reading another excellent review of this restaurant before coming to Bocas, it was lovely to visit tonight and have such a wonderful meal.
Don’t be put off by the street leading up to restaurant, like most in Bocas they back onto the water and the atmosphere was friendly with good music and great food and cocktails. Would highly recommended

The place is really nice. A calm and relaxed atmosphere with good music and good vibration.
Unfortunately the food was not good and this is the main driver to evaluate a restaurant. A confused mix of flavours made evry dishes I tried really below my expectations

Had another great meal here when we were in town. Everyone enjoyed all the appetizers and mains they ordered. Their tuna is fantastic as was the fish ceviche and octopus we shared. It’s a very casual spot and right over the water so bug repellent is recommended at night. Service is good and prices are very reasonable.
