Big Daddy’s is cute, but they are trying too hard! I think the locals really like it. Maybe trying to be a US restaurant with large servings. The fresh squeezed lemonade was delicious. Nachos disgusting. Tacos okay. Prices a bit high, but they won’t break...More

We eat there weekly because of the reasonable and consistent fare. The fish is always fresh. The seafood is affordable, and the specials are original. Chris spirit is in what they serve you. Good job, very consistent and reasonable food.

To my opinion a completely overrated restaurant in Boquete. The food was watery, greasy and lacked taste. Even more so the service was not motivated.

I was there on the 16th December and decided to try the signature burger. The bread was cold after being defrosted and the burger was amazingly salty. If this is their signature meal, I say not good. On top of that the homemade lemonade -coconut-...More

Margaritas were great - classic. Fish tacos, not so much. Really dissapointing. Would not recommend for food to fruit flavored margaritas - no idea why the great reviews on fish tacos.
