“Brilliant Seafood”
Review of Roots

At the roots you can enjoy really good and fresh caught seafood. Went there twice and was both times very delighted. Fish and seafood is well prepared and the sides are simple but good either.
If there are many people you can not expect good service due to a one man show but the food is totally worth it.

We had supper at the Roots. The jack fish we eaten was delicious, with lot of spices, and well-prepared. It was funny as it was evening and we were sitting there alone, it looked like they just opened the kitchen. Only waiting time was quite long, around 40 minutes... But it's Carribean time!

My girlfriend got chicken fried rice, I had chicken with a crazy Caribbean curry sauce. It was all super tasty. Menu send to change day by day depending on what's available so just show up and try something out.

Delicious food and great service, we had delightful chats with the chef about local football and life in Bocas del Toro. Really enjoyed this place which is far from touristy but instead has the real authentic feel that we were looking for.

One of the only places open late for food and drinks on the island. Hungout here on our last night with a bunch of friends we met that day. Good drinks on a large outdoor covered deck.
