This is a nice looking place with a covered patio on the water. We went for breakfast. It was awful! The eggs were WAY overcooked, like rubber. Bacon was flaccid and I asked for crispy. The orange juice wasn't real orange juice. It was like a powdered orange drink. The toast was terrible, The service was good and the place... More

We ate here last night, ordered the ceviche and I must say it was delicious, but then came the lobster, it was actually two different lobsters. One half was a nice size, the other half was so small, it only had two bites on it, I felt cheated. When we went to pay with our credit card they wanted my... More

Having tried a couple of other restaurants serving average tourist food, we went to El Limbo on the sea our last night expecting nothing special, but after a long day at the beach we were tired and it was very close by our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by a fine meal with a great ambiance overlooking the ocean. We... More

Great atmosphere but that was about the best thing about our experience. Service was incredibly slow & felt like we were bothering our waiter. Food was decent; really just ok.

The Indi Lounge at the Limbo on the Sea Hotel has a different menu and completely different vibe from the main hotel restaurant. - Venue: super well decorated, you could image yourself in Bali or in Thailand. Really, points for decor. Plus it was super clean, a lot nicer than the main restaurant. - Service: ok but very slow paced.... More

This place has a great location with a view to the open water but the food was just okay. My salad was completely over dressed with vinegar. I love vinegar but even I thought this was too much. Service was fine but then there were only 5 people in the restaurant.

We walked in and were automatically greeted by someone. Our menus were placed in front of us within seconds once we picked where we wanted to sit. The waitress came over ever 5 minutes until we were ready to order. Once we ordered our drinks we could hear them being made and were served to us within minutes. The waitress... More

We went there for dinner on our first night in Bocas town, as we were advised it was one of the only places still open and serving food. We were too exhausted to do our research that night. I would say the location was nice - vast terrace overlooking the water - but that was about it. The place smelled... More
