As a celiac, traveling and eating out is always a challenge. However, I was very comfortable with the menu and the waitperson's knowledge of the ingredients. We've dined here multiple times and I've not become sick so I know the instructions for avoiding gluten are well translated to the kitchen staff. This is one of our regular places when we... More

My wife had the lobster sandwich and it was wonderful. My blackened amberjack was ok but could not compare to the lobster. The restaurant is small but very comfortable. The service was good and the house wine was excellent.

Very variable menu of the day with a lot of different ways for the fish to be prepared. We chose on a recommendation of the waitress and it didn't disappoint. Nothing outstanding but well worth a visit!

The food was great! We had the fish & chips & it was very good. We ordered margaritas on the rocks & it was the best we have ever had! So delicious, I think it was the lime they were using. The people are friendly. The place is very small & looks like a popular place with local expats there.

Not cheap but it's cheaper than other restaurants in town. An interesting menu, mostly fish but also meat.

This is great value, excellently cook fish with amazing value on their specials! You need to be heads up though, this restaurant fills up quickly, so if you want to hear the stream passing by outside the windows, dock your space early and enjoy the friendly staff and excellent options!

I have a love-hate relationship with this place. I've eaten here a few times. The tilapia is fresh and fish fingers are good. The stir fry tilapia and vegetables with rice is my preferred meal and very good value for the size of the meal (you could easily share it). The burger is good too. Any time I have ordered... More

Family owned and operated (my favorite kind of place!), this is an unassuming place from the outside, inside it's casual and charming and smaller than I thought. One of the few places I've been in Boquete that had every table full! Lots of choice on fresh fish, many different preparations available. Full bar. Fairly inexpensive. Don't go in a hurry,... More

There were 7 of us for dinner and we brought our own wine. The prices are very reasonable and the ambience is very basic with just a few tables. All of the fish was very fresh. I had the grouper with butter and caper sauce. It was thoroughly enjoyable albeit the abundance of butter. The mixed vegetables were soaked in... More

A very good restaurant close to Sugar and Spice and Mikes Grill. I only had one meal there and it was a most excellent steak so I intend returning to work my way through the menu. Nice atmosphere,very good service. On the strength of one visit I will give it four stars but feel I may have to upgrade it... More
