“Best Seafood In Area”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Our Water Taxi Driver tried to tell us about La Promesa, but we insisted he drop us at the Marina and we went into the Panama Sport Lodge - they would not feed us because we were not there on a fishing trip (all inclusive package). The lady directed us to La Promesa a 5 minute walk from the dock - while I was skeptical about the walk/directions as it was already darkening -it was the best thing that happened to us - Probably the best meal we had in Panama. There are only 4 picnic table all outdoors - menu on blackboard - clean place, clean bathroom! no bugs! 4 of us ordered shrimp, snapper, beers, and had a wonderful time for a decent price - I highly recommend this little gem! The owner/cook and one helper took care of us -limited English but helped us get our return water Taxi at a specific time - Water taxi from Bocas Del Mar hotel was only $ 3/pp each way. TAKE A FLASHLIGHT!
