Drinks came quickly by a friendly efficient waitress, food was good, especially the Buffalo chicken wrap - lots of people, some local.

Bocas brewery beer is delicious. Had the toro chicken balls. The jerk sauce definitely wasn't home made. Great sports bar atmosphere though

Toro Loco is an interesting place to have a drink, talk to ex-pats, watch the action on the street or the sports channels. Contrary to other reviews, we did see Panamanians there too. We had some delicious, huge burgers. We walked to town for groceries most days and this was a great place to rest and rehydrate before the return... More

Coldest beer I've gotten in bocas del toro and best chicken wings I've had in a long time. Service is pretty good for panama and your food comes out in a timely manner. Have plenty of tv's there and are typically playing espn sports. Overall a good place to eat, drink, and hangout

This was a great little place to get an afternoon drink. Everyone spoke English so it was easy to converse. They had five tv's on with sports on all the time. We knew we were going to visit here so we brought along a pennant for them. The owner was great to talk to and when we gave it to... More

Didn't matter what we ordered here the food was always excellent! Service was great. Was always a busy place but we managed to find a seat each time. Chicken fingers are fantastic! Came back here several times for either lunch or supper. Definitely recommend coming here!

I felt as if I was at a bar in the US. Locals do not go and it is mostly the ex-pat population who visits. Drinks are fair priced though and there are some games such as darts.

This is a really nice bar, the staff is really nice and speak good English. The beer is 25 cents more expensive during the happy hour on this place than on other pales in Bocas though. However, they have THE BEST cheesy fries I've ever eaten. Seriously, it was like heaven had moved in to my mouth. I would go... More

We ended up having dinner here . The food was lovely, we had burgers and pulled pork and onion rings and cheese sticks to start with. Cold beers, tequila shots, great desserts and a reasonable bill makes it a place where you should go!

My husband and I had lunch here before heading to the airport for our flight back to Panama City. The food was good and the beer cold. Service was very good too. We sat on the deck area and took in the sights of the afternoon. It was very chill and we even had some canine company for a bit.... More
