One good thing - the food tasted good. But . . . . . Five of us placed out orders and waited for an eternity. Finally, the first two plates arrived, with enough food to almost pass as an appetizer. 15 mintues later, the next plate arrived (the order was wrong). Another 5 minute wait for the 4th plate of...

Too bad - it looked very friendly from the outside. However, once seated by the ocean, things got very bad... you wait forever for a drink which is served to you by a totally unmotivated and unfriendly waiter. To her defense, the owner is sooo unfriendly and was shouting on the guests and on her. An absolutely no go! Avoid... More

This restaurant was recommended by a fellow traveler who had been in Bocas Town for 3 weeks. Since she had already tried out all of the restaurants, we took her word for it, and did not regret it. We met for dinner and drinks, and enjoyed the open air and waterfront views almost as much as the food. The grilled... More

This small eatery is on the waterside of town, a boat taxi pier is adjacent. Although being on the water is a nice setting, we were subjected to some local little boys catching fish on the pier and continually abusing them. This is NOT what I want to see. I told them to stop and even with the staff telling... More

My family and I decided to try this place after the restaurant we wanted was closed. We went on a Thursday night and the place was really busy, there were only 3 people working in the entire place (the chef, the waiter, and the bar). We had to wait about an hour and it felt like eternity because we were... More

The food was very yummy and the view was amazing. All parts of the meal were delicious. Service was a little slow but that is normal Bocas. Pricing was also reasonable.

Many  Bocas town cafes  include Italian items on their menus. Pasta cooked to perfection by the Italian chef owner or her son you'll find at only one - the dock side Barracuda. Ours was pasta carbonara prepared in olive oil, not cream, al dente and divine.
