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.

The service was abysmal. Ordering drinks (in spanish) during happy hour was too difficult for the waitress to comprehend. The waitress was incredibly rude.

... and really cool staff. We had two grande pizzas. At $14-16 each, we had nothing to complain about - the best pizzas we had in 10 days bicycling around Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. The staff were pleasant, cool and helpful, and the atmosphere was lovely. The terrace looks over the harbour, and the music was not too loud... More

Went in the early evening ordered Hawaiian pizza which came burn on the edges nearly nothing for toppings and middle of the road flavor. Slow service which is just typical of Bocas. Ordered Gin and Tonic and the first one tasted suspiciously like just Tonic ordered a second and sure enough just tonic. The waiter very apologetic and it probably... More
