The food we had there was great! The thai green curry and burger we ordered we're splendid. The people there were really friendly, without long waiting times and okay prices. From the place you have a nice view on certain parts of the town. I would definitely recommend this one.

I heard about Captain Jacks from friends. Said their burgers were great and that they had other great menu items. Who would have thought that their specialty would include Curry dishes. I had the pineapple curry chicken and it was terrific. My son had their Quesadillas and enjoyed them. Cold beer and friendly staff. There is not a lot in... More

A hidden gem in the middle of no where. Highly recommend it. Thai food. Great atmosphere. Wish I had known about their caesars. Little tight on parking. Doesn't look like much until you go up the steps.

I wrote a review about Captain Jack's the last time I was in Portobelo, but this place is so good I feel like I have to write a new one. The food, atmosphere and service remain excellent. I did something stupid and while having a conversation about where I was staying and what I was doing there, I left my... More

Let's face it - sometimes when you're traveling, you just want a break. You want something familiar. Well, Captain Jack's is that sort of place. Very nice bar/restaurant that is a taste of North America in Panama...or a taste of a thoroughly expatriate Panamanian experience. Anyway, very good place, you won't be disappointed.

Amazing food, especially the half grilled tuna was just great. We loved captain jack too, he helped us get a very nice accommodation, listened to what we needed and wanted and even took time to find out the owners phonenumber for us. It is a little bit more expensive than the rest of the town, but we believe it is... More
