“Best. Chicken. Ever.”
Review of Roots

Roots
Cuisines: Salvadoran
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 November 2014

Isla Bastimientos does't offer a lot of restaurants so the choice is quite limited, nevertheless this is the best chicken we had within the whole stay. It's a very basic place and not very fancy, but the island is still very local so you get to know the real life :)
I don't know about the rest of the food on the menu, but they seem to know what they are doing.

Thank Sandra D

The fresh food on the water. The lobster was delighted! The drink amazing before my Boat Limousine came to pick me up for the party in Bocas!

The location on a dock over the bay was perfect and the food was tasty enough. I just happened to arrive during the slow season when they were hosting a kid's birthday party and the service was beyond bad.

We were told this was one of the best places to dine on the island.

After paying for a boat ride to get here... We were able to dine on the deck which was enjoyable, however, at an old and not so clean plastic table and maybe the only "not broken" five plastic chairs available (just enough for the five of us).

I can't remember what everyone ordered, but do remember overall it was just okay. The only dish that looked worth the trip was the whole fried fish, but enen it was over priced for a 6-8" long fish that had little meat after being deep fried.

over the water, local atmosphere, good food but not amazing. Cold and cheap beer and funny people around. We went during a local Baseball match on the TV and it was great to be in a real local bar.
