The restaurant is pretty good. Nice beach view, cool breezes. 2 complaints: They do not take credit cards and I saw no signs or anything on the menu warning about this. The prices are high for what you get. Being next door to the Decameron Resort I guess allows them to get away with these prices. I can get equal... More

Walked to this place to eat and had a hamburger. Strange meat. We didn't like it.Dirty dogs in the place that sat around our table and grossed us out even more. Will not return. $9 for a bad hamburger😜

We had to travel by boat to this section of beach in Panama. It is a quiet rural city the main attraction was the small festival and Woodys Bar. Nothing to exciting. It's a Canadian spot with lots of sports jersey from Canada.

A friendly, laid back bar right on the beach. I took a taxi from the resort because this was on my "to do list" when we arrived at Playa Blanca. I was not disappointed. The ceiling has t-shirts and sports jerseys from all points in Canada. The staff is friendly and eager to please. I nursed a glass of wine... More

We stopped here for a cold drink while shopping. We were told that the had bar shirts so we made this stop a top priority. Unfortunately they did not, but they did have pricey drinks. Having paid $0.70 at the Super 99 for a Panama beer, it seemed that $3.50 was a lot to pay for the service and atmosphere.... More

We had walked into town from the resort and decided to go back along the beach we heard about woody's a "Canadian Bar" and discovered it on our walk. Was not overly crowded, a perfect place to stop and have a beer and bite and watch the ocean. Food was good and beer was cold!

We had a meal and drinks there, and the food was great, and so was the service. Reasonable prices. Unfortunately, it closed around 9pm, while we would have loved to stay longer at the bar. But they were really nice and let us take our time to leave.
